Mahindra Blues Festival—Identity System Redesign
MBF—Identity Project / 2018
Typography II With Paul Soullelis
Faced with the challenge of selecting and redesigning an existing cultural event, the Mahindra Blues Festival, a popular music festival hosted every year in the city of Mumbai, India, stood out as a event in desperate need of a design intervention. Having embedded itself in the cultural tapestry of Mumbai as an important event featuring a confluence of established and ascendent voices in the world of Blues music, I sensed an incongruity between its design identity and the cultural currency that it weilded as one of Asia’s largest blues festivals. This project is an attempt at capturing the cultural weight that the Mahindra Blues Festival holds in a country whose thirst for blues music only seems to grow with each passing year.
