2016 Danzantes Unidos Festival Logo
This year, hundreds of dancers come together for three days to take workshops, see amazing performances and interact with other Folklorico lovers at The Danzantes Unidos Festival, the largest folklorico dance gathering in the United States. Once again, I was asked to create a logo for the festival. After many sketches I decided to center the artwork around the dances of Morelos. The character featured in the logo is called a Chinelo. Chinelos is a fun dance in which dncers dress up in colorful costumes with masks, elaborate headdresses, moving to lively music. The theme for the festival was “El Corazon del Pueblo” hence the image of the heart anchoring the logo.
