Poster design – "Liberation Theology and the other(s)"
Contextualising Catholic Activism in the 20th century in Latin America

Poster design for the International Conference "Liberation Theology and the other(s)"  by the Institute of History in the University of Bern, Switzerland.

Poster concept
The poster visualises the debate of the conference with the juxtaposition of classic and full of color catholic stained glass on top of a historical image which features an indigenous man in the catholic festivities at Calca, Peru in 1979. 

The poster typography and layout was designed with a contemporary angle in mind to reinforce the contrast in styles against the stained glass to provide a modern angle to the debates on the contrasts from the past.

Contamination Nation
This poster series was born during the "One design x day 2010" challenge. The series seeks to support the conversation of pollution around nature. Using a single geometric shape repeated in different colors, sizes and angles the poster series creates an artificial pattern that seeks to rescue the beauty of nature below the contamination stain.

One Design x Day
One Design x Day is a personal project and commitment towards my love and passion for the visual arts, with the main purpose of learning, experimenting, discovering, and growing in every aspect of design. From concept development to execution, I seek to not only to push myself to create solid daily visual concepts, but also I hope that I can share a message that people can relate to. I want to create pieces that share a message from what I have learned in life. I believe the visual arts have a unique power for communicating ideas, and hopefully through design I can contribute a little bit to make this a better world and giving visual support to my visitors.
