Underground Festival de Musica Subterranea Sistema is a part of the University project that our featured artist worked on. It was made to give acknowledgement to musicians who performs in Buenos Aires Underground by making a graphic pieces of a festival. Promoting music and art to where he lives gave our featured artist the inspiration to make this artwork. Let’s check out this amazing art set!

This is a project that began as part of a University project. The project consist in making all the graphic pieces of a festival. You can choose the subject of the festival. With this premise, I tried to work for the people who play in Buenos Aires Underground (AKA Subtes de Buenos Aires). If you think it, there are a lot of this musicians and they don't have a festival. Maybe because the low income they can generate doing this activity, but they are really important and creative people.

I was thinking about generating a project for the people who spend all day playing music in the Underground of Buenos, where i'm living by now.
They are a big part of our music culture, and sometimes we take them for granted. If you think it well, they can change your mood. When you are sad, they can with some little songs make your day, or touch you inside.

When I first start a project, i think it very well, i try to make draws of the ideas, concepts and try to put it together before working on the computer.
Specially with this project that has the imprint of the underground, being in some way fast and low budget because is generate by this low income artists, etc.

After this i used Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign for generate this pieces.

this is the main line up of the festival that reminds to the old massimo vignelli posters

I think that artists have to forget the standards of the graphic industry, and be more passionate and more intuitive.
Working thinking in a social Cause is good too. Be part of something. Think each design like a beautifull process without being thinking in the final result.
If you ask me, design is a journey of discovery.
