RVB Balloons, one of several of the newer manufacturers to the sport and corporate ballooning market, created in 1995 by Marcos Bonimcontro as AeroMagic Balloons of Sao Paulo Brazil. In 2006 the company became RVB Balloons, moving to a new and much larger facility to keep up with the increasing demand for orders for both corporate and private clients. RVB special shaped balloons have fast become a crowd favorite at hot air balloon events across the globe including the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta where RVB usually chooses to debut many of their creations.

RVB prides itself on engineering. So much so, Marcos Bonimcontro, RVB founder and a physics instructor wrote his own design program especially for the dynamics exclusive to the unusual shaped hot air balloon envelopes.

Check out the photographs pictured here - In a Special Shape balloon the interior design of the envelope is critical as it is displacing stresses and loads to other  sections of  the  envelope. 

These diversions help to redirect air to appendages, inflating tentacles, beaks, wings, noses or perhaps even birds.
