LANGUAGES MATTER! A UNESCO poster competition

Languages As Art

by Daniel Tu

The idea for this design is to create a correlation between languages and art. It is my personal belief that language is a form of art. To illustrate that point, this poster has been designed as an artistic expression of an important message: languages matter. The overlapping silhouettes represent harmony within the diversity of cultures. Both profiles focus on speaking lips, which represent our individual spoken languages.

The attempt of this design was for people to view and enjoy it as an artwork, continuing past International Mother Language Day.
