DESCRIPTION

What? "Manobras no Porto" is a set of events that occur throughout the city of Porto and that want to involve and give life to all people of the city. For the 2012 edition was presented a competition for the creation of signs of where the events occur.

How?For the creation of signage, we were inspired by a symbol that is already well known in Porto: the triangular flags. Used at birthday parties or festivals, the hanging colored banners announce the joy and fun. The same system of triangles (that would be glued to the floor) was chosen to signal the directions where the events would occur. Finally, to indicate where the "Manobra" is going to be held, we would create a sign (like the traffic signs) to warn passersby. The material chosen for the signage was cork (in fabric or in sticker): sturdy, waterproof, eco and traditionally Portuguese, is a material that combines the perfect qualities for this event. We designed flags that signaled the squares on a very Portuguese way. To put the information in the flags we would use stamps that could be reused later.
