"Wet Paint" is a poster developed for "Mostra Aberta de Letrismo Contemporâneo", an exhibition from 18/07 to 08/08/2015 at Casa SinLogo in São Paulo. One of them was exhibited and they are available for sale at the Gallery.
The original inspiration were the signs made to identify surfaces that have been recently painted and need a warning. That combined with my personal desire to explore the washi tape as a tool for drawing letters, generated this poster, which has no paint involved, since the letters are built only with layers of tape.

This experiment started back in 2010, when playing with some orange rubber bands during a workshop. The first attempts to build letters and ornaments with the elastics were put together with tape around them. Later in 2015, when finding similar elastics for sale, this went one step further, by sewing the pieces together, exposing the beauty of the material. Experiment to be continued...
For The Penthouse in Den Haag (NL) I refined the existing logo and designed a custom set of ornaments. The Penthouse is a truly international and cosmopolitan place, located on the top floors of The Hague Tower, offering amazing views of up to 45 kilometres, 135 meters up from the ground. Spread over 11 floors you will find the bar/ restaurant, luxury business & private dining suites, meeting rooms, the Penthouse veranda, as well as apartments, offices & workspaces.
In the images you can see the new logo in use, the initial logo and the end result, as well as the process, the sketches for the ornaments and the new set in use.
