Culture Counts: UNESCO poster competition

Competition Details

2010 International Year for the Rapprochement of Cultures

by Alejandro Astaiza Salgado


How do you feel when you try to know a new culture? Which is the common sense between the cultures? Is possible rapprochement of cultures?
My design is the response to those questions. We are innocent beings surrounded with many symbols who represent many cultures and our mission is to learn, to comunicate and to share with the different cultures that are around us, in the same way that a small baby would do it when start to feel the world.
I use many symbols to generate a global idea about the culture diversity and the many things that we use to comunicate. The circle around the fetus is to show that we are in a space like the earth where we must accept it, that our duty is to respect all the cultures and to share this space even if the space is small. The variety of colors in the symbols and text is to represent the culture as a diversity of colors.
Thank you very much for the atention to my design.
