This Little Land of Mines

Identity for a documentary about Laos
Logo Design, Print
Freelance

This Little Land of Mines is an independent feature documentary premiering in 2019. It's about the resilience of the Lao people as they live among and work to clear 80 million unexploded ordnance (UXO) that the United States dropped during the Vietnam War era. The logo draws inspiration from editorial typography to convey the journalistic nature of the film.

You can watch the film on amazon prime here.
