Summer Puppet Pier Redesign


June of 2019


Blaž Krump



An annual international summer festival celebrating puppetry. Every year since 1990 thousands of visitors get to enjoy a broad variety of performances around the banks of river Drava in Maribor.

The 30th edition of this festival called for a change, and the brief asked for a fresh approach. A more wholesome approach with vibrant colours, a bold and playful type, alongside an unusual choice for the mascot, have given this event new life. Giraffes with the looongest necks for this festival with the looongest tradition.

Conceptualized and designed by Blaž Krump, with constructive input and DTP by Pia Kante.
