Picó Picante is a celebration of underground global dance music, hosting DJs and musicians from across the world. We co-founded the nightlife series in 2011, and we built the brand to harness the vibrant intercultural energy of Boston, where the monthly event runs.

The brand captures an electro-tropical spirit, drawing elements from Latin American sign-painting and textiles, crystalized into digital forms. The visual language and promotions are flexible, shifting to reflect the headliner's point of origin, the evening's theme, and the cultural tides.

Taking the experience to the streets, Nomadic Picó Picante was a traveling music experience, zig-zagging through Boston by bicycle with a mobile soundsystem, picking up dancers along the way. The project aimed to use global dance music as a catalyst to explore the city's diversity.
