Pausefest 2018 Opening Titles

Toros Köse

From the creator:

"We shall not cease from exploration,
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."

- T.S. Eliot

Opening main titles for Pausefest 2018.

I was contacted by Pausefest founder George Hedon in summer of 2017 about creating the opening titles for next years conference and, a conference opener being on my project bucket list, I happily agreed to do it.

This concept aimed to visualize this years theme: Journey = Destination. The idea that a journey and it's destination are the same, two parts of a whole, leading to a never ending cycle of discovery. A journey leads to a destination, that might lead to a new journey, and so on.

While this can be abstracted and intellectualized ad infinitum it can also take a more literal shape. A map.

Maps can serve as metaphors as well as the more obvious tool many times necessary to embark on and complete a journey.
