LANGUAGES MATTER! A UNESCO poster competition

Competition Details


by David Muehlfeld

Different languages sound beautiful. Different languages look beautiful. To understand people from different countries is beautiful. I really wanted to know, if you can mix letters from many languages to build the slogan: "Language matters". Letters from these languages were most suitable for this idea: Arabic, Hebraic, Thai, Polish, Czech, Hindi, French, Spanish, Japanese, Greek, Norwegian, Russian. I like that one letter can represent a whole language. I like that the linguistic diversity becomes visible. Still, there is a subtle difference between the english and the french text so the public can read it more easily.
