40Bunarfest featured on AIGA’s portfolio

2013-08-18

The American Institute of Graphic Arts – AIGA has been founded in 1914 and remains the oldest and largest professional membership organization for design, and constantly demonstrates value of design and empowers the success of designers at each stage of their career.

As it is one of the most influential organization in the design industry, it’s quite strict on the portfolios it selects but the amazing work done by Berin Hasi, Erdis Driza, Granit Halili, Arianit Fazliu and Faton Selishta, for the 9th edition of 40Bunarfest (non-traditional festival in Prizren, Kosovo) has impressed them, and thus they have featured the work in their members section. The brand is compromised from 9 circles, symbolizing the 9th edition while there are some small circles inside the logo, which represent water sprinkles, that are part of going down the river with the tractor tube.

With more than 60 local chapters throughout the United States and over 20,000 members, it is the largest design organization in the world, and having the work featured in its member’s portfolios is quite an honor for any designer and it also gives a reflection on the quality of designers coming from different areas of the world, even from Kosovo. Check out the Bunarfest project here.

“40 Bunar Fest” is a traditional festival, race, which is held in Prizren, Kosovo and everyone who has a tractor tube and a “kunxh” (coonj) can show herself (himself) and participate in this festival and experience the thrill and adrenaline in her (his) blood.
