    The search for truth can take us to the most unlikely places. For graffiti artists, manipulating letters became lifeblood and fighting back meant getting ill, and ill-legible. Once harnessed, an unusual torrent of creative, language-based experimentation and expression flowed from urban cities. It turned tables, oppressed the oppressor, and lit the fuse for a contemporary graffiti movement.

    "Getting up", the recognition that comes with the near constant act of tagging your name, became the driving force in the nascent graffiti scene. As a result the application of tags proliferated through crowded urban housing projects and high-traffic public transit systems until surfaces were covered in permanent inks. The competitive nature of graffiti, a hold-over from urban gang activity, was played out in non-violent "battles" that featured spray cans and skill instead of knives and strength. (The competitive nature of graffiti would seep into and boost the related youth sub-culture of hip-hop dance and music.) More importantly, competition brought about the stylistic innovations that were necessary to distinguish one tag from the rest. These revealed themselves in unique hand styles and lettering including the use of bubble letters, complicated scripts, calligraphic flourishes, flexible ascenders and descenders, new ligatures, simple illustrations, and cartoon characters.

  • Language Matters

    Arts & Culture, Communication Design


    Language allows us to celebrate, to cherish, to engage, expressive and understand, to learn and to teach, to discuss, inquire, and challenge. We owe much of our live experiences to language, and it is not a stretch to say that language is the thread that bind us to others and gives meaning to our lives.

    To quote Toni Morrison:

    "To die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives."

    The poster is for the Language Matters campaign. Just wanted to use profiles with different colors to con notate the different ethnic groups, and emphasize the most important part of the whole campaign. Also tried to keep it simple to have a more readable posters since it communicates the message in two languages.

    They estimate that there are 7,000 languages in the world today but if we take Australia's example you can make a better picture of the problem in your mind. They say that when Europeans arrived in Australia they were 250 languages on record spoken at the time but this have been reduced to only 17 transmitted to the younger generations.

    The concept in general is given by the using os icons that has and international recognition, in the case of the cross as symbol of unity. The map represents the whole world and the images, the diversity of language. The poster disaing is essentially simple and it is a message easy to thecode.
