CAVITE—With community pantries popping up in many parts of the Metro Manila area, a graphic designer from Caviteño is helping out with the movement by coming up with visual designs.
According to Imus City-based artist Dustin Carbonera, he noticed that most community pantries only had marker-on-cardboard signage. Taking inspiration from fellow graphic designers Ralph Guibani and Lloyd Zapanta who also made posters for community pantries, Carbonera decided to create a design for the Cavite stands, giving it a local flair.
“The design inspiration for this template comes from the Baby Bus font created by Cavite designer John Misael Villanueva,” Carbonera told the Manila Bulletin.
“The Maginhawa Community Pantry signage is a mix of Lloyd Zapanta’s LL Karatula and Aaron Amar’s Cubao, so when I created one for Cavite, I had to use something contextual. Surprisingly Baby Bus is from Cavite so I had to use that,” he added.
Also called a minibus, a baby bus is a cross between a bus and a jeepney, seen cruising the streets of Cavite.
Signage templates are available in various colors via a publicly available Google Slides file.
