LANGUAGES MATTER! A UNESCO poster competition

Competition Details


by Zsuzsi Bakó


My basic idea was to create a poster quite modern, which talks primarly to the youth but at the same time is appriciatable for everyone. I used a universal face to accentuate the similarity of people. The use of different colors and mimicries shows the identities, the nationalities, the languistic variety. Fresh, lightsome colors picture a positive, agile point of view. The agility shows up also in the dinamic composition of the typography. The arrangement of the colorful bands reflects on the mutual communicaton between people, the transmission of ideas by words, by languages. The big face in the background symbolizes a collective knowledge affected by the collective communication of different nationalities. Each of these languages puts in something very special, unique and especially irreplaceable and indispensable in this common knowledge.
