The logo of the 39th MassKara Festival celebrating the 80th birthday of Bacolod has been released.
They were presented to the public for the first time yesterday by MassKara Action Officer Councilor Em L. Ang at the Rotary Club of Bacolod North.
Digital artist Mark Lester Jarmin who specializes in character logos to international clientele did the present logo. He also designed last year’s.
For the first time, a MassKara logo has the theme of the festival in bigger fonts than the words “MassKara Festival”. This is to emphasize that this MassKara celebrates a milestone bigger than the festival—the 80th birthday of the city, Festival Director Eli Tajanlangit said.
The logo shows a MassKara dancer peeking through the first letter O in the word Bacolod. Jarmin said the dancer is wearing a mask with eight colorful feathers representing eight decades of the city, silhouettes of a human figure representing the people of Bacolod behind the masks, a black and white checkered pattern representing one of Bacolod’s landmarks—the public plaza’s checked steps, and a smiling face on the second letter O.
