LANGUAGES MATTER! A UNESCO poster competition

Competition Details


by Celeo Ramos


The poster is inspired by the fact that there is a need to rescue all languages which are about to disappear. Its has a main element, a mouth exaggerated in size as a way of shouting out to the world the message that languages matter! Colors are selected to produce an alarming effect, specially the blue circle that might be a reflection of the planet in which we live. The little character can also be a representation of anyone of us who are aware of the importance of languages. In general the main goal of the poster is to catch the attention of the viewer and reducing every element to a very simple form making it easy to remember, the use of abstract forms makes this image very universal. The clear typography is very neutral making it adequate for this purpose.
