This project was born from an invitation of the Surf City Festival. It is an international festival that takes place in Barcelona, recognised by uniting in a single event the urban culture and the cult of the surf.
The artistic request was a special graphic piece for the festival.
The concept defined is called Make Waves, a collection of special posters that replicate the process of building a surfboard.
Graphically the posters explore the perception of the sea waves in several compositions which juxtapose color and form.
To shape the posters, a professional surfboard shaper was invited to create a series of structured casts that allowed him to shape each poster with different wave forms and volumes, transforming a graphic piece usually flat into a poster with three-dimensional waves.
