Quiksilver Pro Puerto Escondido 2009
An art package was created to convey the heaviness and history of Puerto Escondido in Mexican surfing, while still being relevant for Quiksilver in 2009. The resulting poster was silkscreened in a traditional two-color gradient and wheat-pasted around the city. Wheat-pasting was carried through to print ads, event signage, web, TV and product. A limited-edition set of 250 posters was available for sale online and at the event.
