Mexico 68 Part 2
Posted by Scott
Another page from Design Magazine #237. The balloons feature the original illustration for the ’68 games by Ramirez Vazquez, Eduardo Terrazas (MEX) and Lance Wyman (USA) who designed the “Mexico 68” logo. Wonder if any survived?

Not sure what the original was, but I think it might just be an illustration, not an entire typeface. ….The modern equivalent is Mexcellent by Ray Larabie

The balloons did survive. Currently (August 2008), The Modern Art Museum in Mexico City holds a exhibit with the Graphic Design History of Mexico68 and at the entrance you can find 2 of those balloons. The exhibit is really great, a lot of memorabilia.

El arquitecto Eduardo Terrazas vive en la Cd de México y sigue activo con su despacho de arquitectura.
