La Ultima Parada – Event Artist, Logo & Calavera T-Shirt
La Ultima Parada is fortunate to have a unique logo created especially for this event by LUP Artist, Antonio Sarabia.
The design incorporates the elements that together make up this celebration. The giant ferris wheel that has become a signature ride at LUP. On the opposite side, a jarana represents the live musical acts.
A folklorico boot stands in for the dance community. The heart aflame represents our community and the circuit board icons are a nod to Silicon Valley.
The trolley (teeth) reminds us of our original inspiration for “the last stop”–Jose Guadalupe Posadas “Electric Trolley” in which we can see Muertitos arriving to the end of the line at the cemetery. It is our hope to include an actual trolley at our event in the coming years.
