unesco rapprochment of cultures throughout fabrics

by juliana barrault


I decided to work on a typographic poster because it is a direct way to communicate. The message is clearly evoked.

In order to illustrate the idea of culture, I looked for every kind of traditional fabric from every continent and I composed the letters with it.

Traditional fabrics represent cultures of each country, the way people are dressed is deeply integrated in their own cultures, patterns are inspired by their environment and by their way of living. Clothings people wears is a way to affirm a membership to a country and its culture.

Thus, the message of the poster is written by all these different patterns and the « rapprochment » of these fabrics compose the subject of the message.
