Culture Counts: UNESCO poster competition

Competition Details

Rapprochement 2010

by Andrew Thomas

The year’s theme of dialogue, mutual understanding, and cooperation between cultures are represented through a layering and intertwining of colorful strokes. The lines may be read as thoughts, language, listening, people, or anything else acting in unison. Their dialogue combines to form a coherent and focused entity while maintaining soft and inviting edges. A generous amount of white space further enhances the image’s presence. For overall visual simplicity, the design borrows hues from the official (accompanying) UNESCO logo color palate. Thanks and I hope you enjoy.
