    To the rhythm of the Super Tipo Veloz modular typeface, a summery customized version of the typeface – inspired by towels and parasols – presents the first edition of the Istiu festival. Istiu is a colloquial dialectal variant of estiu, the Catalan word for “summer”.

    The illustrations and typography are based on the typographic system created by Joan Trochut Blanchard in 1942, a pioneer and benchmark in Spanish graphic design. It was digitalized and revived by Andreu Balius and Alex Trochut in 2004.

    The stripes and colour combinations – which will change for each edition of the festival – seek to transmit the freshness of the summer breeze while at the same time set the tempo and visual rhythm of the artists’ names.
