24 hours in Buenos Aires illustration

If you had 24 hours in Buenos Aires, Argentina would you know what to do? With 48 barrios, or neighbourhoods, each featuring a different personality it could become tough to choose which area to visit. Luckily Qatar Airways’s inflight magazine Oryx checked them out and jotted down the places to visit. Patrick Hruby created a lovely illustration of some of the unique places in the capital that accompanies the article. Patrick included the colourful neighbourhood La Boca, the Argentinean Fileteado art, the Palacio Barolo landmark building and lots more into his illustration.

Argentina has some of the best wines in the world, and La Boca could be one of the most colourful neighborhoods in the world. Combining the two will give you the La Boca wine. Designed by Argentinean graphic designer and branding expert Guillo Milia.

This is how La Boca wine describes the area and wine:
“La Boca neighborhood is one of the most picturesque places in Buenos Aires due to its colorful port setting. The so-called “la piccola Italia” (little Italy) reflects the European influence, mainly southern Italian, who arrived to the port of Buenos Aires between 1860 and 1910. At the time, they used the paint left over from ships to cover the walls of their houses. La Boca is an icon of Argentinean identity, with a strong international transcendence in several aspects: historically, culturally, and artistically (Home of Tango). For this reason, it was chosen as a resource of visual communication to express the essence of our young, fruity and un-oaked wines.” via soydg

In the “Colours of Buenos Aires” post you will be able to see some more photos of the area.

Aerolineas Argentinas identity

Posted by rod - 08.09.2010

Our Mission
To connect Argentineans and contribute towards the integration and economic and social development of our country, promoting the national territory as a tourist, cultural and business destination.

Our symbol
The condor is a bird typical of our national territory. However, the Aerolíneas condor is an indisputable part of the brand. It is not a naturalistic representation but a proper and personal symbol, designed with a particular style and instantly recognizable. Born in the middle of last century, this symbol is rescued today more than ever, more stylized and refined in a subtle and respectful manner.

Our Colors
In order to pay tribute to our flag, Aerolíneas changes the dark blue for a light one and includes the yellow as a representation of the sun in its color palette, and silver, representing the etymological origin of our country and also as a symbol of the excellence we have set as our goal.

Up high in the sky
The phrase that goes with our new brand image is burned into the memories of all Argentineans’ and inhabitants of this country. Up high in the sky (“Alta en el cielo” as is the original phrase in Spanish) evokes the first line of the patriotic song “Aurora” written in 1908 as a tribute to the national flag. The phrase plays with the identification of Aerolíneas Argentinas as a country emblem, and places the company within its element: the sky.

Celebrating Argentina’s 200 years of Bicentennial

Posted by rod - 18.08.2010

On May 25, 2010 Argentina celebrated their 200 years of Bicentennial. 200 years ago Viceroy Baltasar Hidalgo de Cisneros’ was ousted from office and replaced with the Primera Junta, the first national government.

Bicentennial celebrations began on Friday, May 21, in Buenos Aires, with millions of people in attendance, making it the biggest outdoor festivities Argentina has seen since it celebrated its return to democratic rule after seven years of military dictatorship in 1983

The visual identity was created by imagenHB who took an interesting approach to tackle this complex brief. In recent years Latin American governments have seen the importance of strengthening their political messages of unity, optimism and new ideals.

ImagenHB created a universal logo that represents the national celebration. The main logo represents the values and colours of the whole country. The Sun is the centrepiece illuminating every corner, every city and the people of Argentina. The provincial logos have incorporated their own unique colours making the identity more flexible and personal, without losing its distinctive form. via grafitat and lh5.ggpht.com
