“Typography and illustration based in a fresh approach of the
art nouveau aesthetics, Its identity is expressed in various details
and unusual shapes and ligatures.”

Faun is a mythological half human – half goat creature appearing in Ancient Rome.
The goat man, more commonly affiliated with the Satyrs of Greek mythology,
is a bipedal creature with the legs and tail of a goat and the head, arms and torso
of a man and is often depicted with goat’s horns and pointed ears.

Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, is a symphonic poem for orchestra by Claude Debussy,
approximately 10 minutes in duration.

Debussy’s work later provided the basis for the ballet “Afternoon of a Faun”
choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky.

The illustration was based on archive photos of these first performances.
The final design and the typography used is a redesign of the era’s Art Nouveau trends.
