10 Mexican-Inspired Designs in Honor of Cinco de Mayo

In celebration of the recent day of pride for Mexicans and Americans, we curated a list of 10 designs from across the web demonstrating the vivid and inspiring art landscape of Mexico.

Cinco de Mayo is a historic day of pride acknowledging the defeat of the French army by a squad of Mexicans notably “smaller, poorer and under equipped” in comparison, near the town of Puebla in 1862.

At Structural Graphics, we love eye-catching designs.  So in honor of Mexican pride and culture, we’re spotlighting 10 projects with incredible color, design, pattern and style from across the web.
