A common dialogue

by Teodoro Mancera


The concept developed in the poster is the search of a common dialogue among the different cultures with its idiosyncrasies, own speech of identity and its language.
A dialogue open to the multiethnic and multilingual exchange, where each language should have a space of free expression, respect and understanding.
To communicate the ones mentioned they fused the dialogue symbol with a human profile and it was used symbiosis like basic reason of the poster is. The use of several colours enlarges and it reinforces the semantic value of the symbol in question according to the idea of representing the existent cultural diversity.
Likewise the texts are organized at the same reading level, settling down that there is not a hierarchy of a language on other, in agreement with the idea that all language has the same value and social function.
