Leth box

cyan; film; packaging;
Graphic identity, design and packaging of the Jørgen Leth DVD box series. The series is a collection of the documantary, fiction and interview films of Jørgen Leth.

In 2007, the Danish Film Institute, with funding from danish investor Møllehegnet Holding A/S, began the extensive work of collecting the fiction films, documentaries and interviews of acclaimed danish writer, journalist, film director and lecturer Jørgen Leth. The final selection of Jørgen Leth´s life work, which spans from the early 1960´s through to present day was compiled into a series of six DVD-boxes. The final selection covered the different areas of his productions and were ordered under these six titles – The Anthropological Films, The Sport Films, The Travel Films, The Fiction Films, The Portrait Films and The Experimental Films.

The idea that Jørgen Leth as a film maker and as a cultural persona is too big to fit into a DVD-box, set the main tone for the collections graphic identity. This concept was visualised by arranging the typography in a way that it crosses the limits of the format.

Format:139 x 187.5 x 21.5 mm, offset with laquer.
