Have you heard of Fluoro Baroque?

Visual identity and graphic design for the tenth edition of Samos Young Artists Festival.

The annual event brought together emerging and established performers in an ancient Greek theatre. Artists from across the world gathered during the seven-day presentation, playing music that spanned the Baroque, tango and contemporary. The supporting designs capture the musicality of performance across dynamic, hand-rendered illustrations.

Back in my day we loved our politicians

Visual identity and supporting design materials for an exhibition in Samos and Athens.

Anatomy of Political Melancholy was a group exhibition on contemporary disillusionment. Curator Katerina Gregos describes it as one that “probes the increasing and widespread loss of faith in politics and politicians today.” A visual identity was produced for the two-part exhibition, drawn up via block colour and fragmented motifs.

Bittersweet mints and forever-never goodbyes

Visual identity and supporting design for the final edition of a German music festival.

Nachtdigital offered festival solutions to a small German camping village for 22 years. Within the festival’s swan song identity, bus.group installed a minty mascot across its design furnishings. Tees, LPs, and a fitting mix of memories inside the welcome booklet reminisced on the past two decades of Nachtilove.
