Yellow is in!
Futura, the Mexico City-based graphic design and branding studio, has developed the branding for Blop. The festival was presented by Fondeadora and curated by Futura. The inspiration behind the system was the COVID "bubble" that was born during the lockdowns. The result is anything but dividing. Instead, it's friendly, approachable, and bright. The identity is full of quirky movements, typography, and editorial photography that's sure to leave you wanting more.
It only makes sense that an art, design, and culture festival would have the creative ability to inspire you, and Blop and Futura have done just that.
BLOP is an art, design, and culture festival that was streamed digitally for two days in December 2020. Presented by Fondeadora and curated by Futura, Blop showcased 13 highly influential creatives based in Mexico City, Buenos Aires, and Barcelona that led us through the lens of various disciplines: design, art, gastronomy, illustration, and new technologies.
BLOP was born from the idea of breaking the "bubble" that isolated us during Covid’s lockdown; to break that barrier through culture, uniting creatives with new ways of perception. Based on this concept, Futura developed the branding for the entire Festival with images of balloons inflating to the point of breaking. Likewise, a rich and varied typeface was designed with alternative characters.
