  13. Istanbul United: A documentary about Turkish football ultras and their role in the 2013 protests

    All over the world we can witness acts of civil disobedience against the ruling powers these days. The groups of protesters often consist of a wide range of interest groups.

    At times these alliances are able to bridge their deeply rooted conflicts in order to unite for a common cause.

    During the current protests in Turkey such an alliance formed out of the most unlikely parties. For years fans of the 3 main football clubs in Istanbul (Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Besiktas), have been known all over Europe for their unconditional support of their teams, and their mutual rivalry that often resulted in extremely violent clashes.

    AKU    |    http://aku.co

    "Starting with the idea that new, undiscovered music is like some rare animal,  the design is built around a tropical plant visual, created by young painter Eleriin Ello. Somewhat unexpected pink color and distinctive typography complete the identity, which was applied to a wide range of materials."

    AKU is a design agency based in Tallinn, Estonia. They develop strategies, create concepts and implement solutions across different media. Their main areas of expertise lay in branding, packaging and designed environments. 

    Starting with a simple “why?”, the work process always involves both research and intuition, aiming to provide meaningful, honest and surprising ways to solve the task. At AKU, they always encourage close, trustful relationships that are achieved through direct communication between the designer and client.
