Nominated for Best Graphic at this year’s Dutch Design Week, Kok Pistolet‘s poster series provided directions to Ekko, a music festival venue in Utrecht.

Pistolet then visited each poster, painting in bright colors over the lines not needed, so the ones left in black and white formed a set of directions. As concert-goers approached the venue, the directions became increasingly simpler, with more of the arrows painted over.
