Visual communication is my occupation, but this challenge, of literally visualizing communication, has occupied my creative nerve in more ways than I had imagined. To visualize images of all of the senses necessary to communicate the intricacies of human spoken and written languages, to appeal to a global audience and include all of the goals written in the call for action by UNESCO’s Director-General, Mr Koïchiro Matsuura is nothing less than complex.
“Languages lie at the heart of all social, economic and cultural life” inspired the thought of morphing many portraits of actual living diverse human beings of all ages and colour, in a simple and distinct manner. Approach 1. Language is an integral part of everyday life: it brings people together, it transcends differences, and it celebrates connections. As a graphic creation, the poster itself intends to manifest this vision, bringing together same diverse human elements, to form one meaningful, manifold whole.
