For the first poster spot of September we feature the poster “Cardboard workshop” designed by Kaled Avila from Puebla, Mexico. Graduated from the Higher School of Sciences and Humanities, he is Co-founder and active member of the graphic collective “Sin Centavos”, with which and together with his friends and colleagues, he has organized various cultural activities, such as: conferences, exhibitions and workshops based on graphic design; focused especially on university and master’s students. He has been selected in international competitions such as the international contest Second Call (2018), International Biennial of Design COW in Belarus (2019), winner of the second place in Posterterrorism (2020); Listen to my voice, Reggae Poster Contest, Peru Design Biennial, Iran International Blue Lotus Digital Visual Festival, among others.
The poster Cardboard workshop makes a subtle reference to Mexican culture. The mocking representation of death in its many facets, whether in a literary, graphic way, commonly decorated with flowers, dressed as a catrina or made of sugar and candy, is to say the least, something that is part of the daily life of the Mexican.
