Lido Cinema — Going back in time for this neighbourhood cinema
Lido Cinemas is a neighbourhood art house cinema based in Melbourne. The Lido identity, created by Studio Round, took its cue from historic cinema paraphernalia, referencing old scripts, film posters and iconic cinematheques from around the world. My role was to bring the identity to life through motion and digital communications. Inspired by the filmic past, I took archival content and traditional camera techniques to create an interesting tension for a digital medium. Alongside a complex website, the work spanned printed menus, advertising and trailers.
