The Poster Monday spot of this week is entitled “Denouncement,” it comes from Mexico and it was designed by Luis Antonio Rivera Rodriguez. Luis Antonio was born in Puebla, Mexico. He graduated in Graphic Design from the Autonomous University of Puebla and is the coordinator and professor of graphic design at the College of Sciences and Humanities Puebla. His work has been selected for many national and international exhibitions including Tokyo 2014, Reykjavik 2015, 12ème Triennale Internationale de L’affiche Politique (Le Manage) Belgium 2013, International Triennial of Stage Poster Sofia and Biennial 2013 Poster Bolivia BICeBé 2013 among others.
The Denouncement poster design was originated by the deaths that took place in the city of Puebla, Mexico; unsolved cases where pregnant women were victims, mostly from their partners and that the government has done nothing to solve. “I decided to make this picture to share and make our society aware of what it is we are living. We know we can not reach everyone, but contribute a grain of sand and a high image shout. I used the metaphor to make an image more impact and simple understanding” says Rivera.
“I believe that design can help our community in different ways our work can have a social impact, strengthen an idea and that this not only remain on paper but also in the minds of recipients for long” says Luis Antonio.
