After illustration crafting, poster design is what as close as we designers can get to art, speaking of freedom of graphic expression.

The Poster's work is one of quick and fast comunication of a message, being a publicitary, a promotional, a cultural, a political or a social one.

In this section of my website I'm pressenting some of my more significant poster design work. Pleas click on the one you like to see it fully with a description and maybe a brief story about it.

Deja que el arte se cruce en tu camino

Year: 2000
Measures: 28x43cm (Tabloid - 17x11in)

My first poster proyect was for a cultural magazine's design contest. The magazine was called La Ruta del Arte (Art's Way). The contest consisted on designed a promotional poster for the magazine that could be used as its cover.

The design I did was the one i'm showing here. This is a simple postere where I'm showing a way to the publication's logo. This way is at the same time a very abstract representation of Dali's face, and it's followed by the phrase: Let art cross your way.

I should add that I didn't win the contest, it was on the finalist only. However I like to share it because is my official design work. Besides it was published inside the winning issue magazine.

JAMA

Year 2003
Measures: 73x103cm (28.7x40.5in)

In one of my illustration workshops I was asked to design a poster inspired by a mexican illustrator, using a similar technique as the illustrator uses.

I decided do it about JAMA (Juan Antonio Martínez Anaya), who utilizes several collage techniques to create stunning illustrations.

This poster was entirely hand made, using a mix of illustration techniques and stitching together with glue the several pieces of hand drawn materials. The phrase accopanyng the poster was "From the pain calm JAMA is born".
