The Poster Monday spot of the week goes to Eréndida Mancilla from México for her poster entitled “Somos Semilla”. Eréndida studied Graphic Design at the School of Habitat and also has a Master in Graphic Design from the Research Institute and Graduate School of Habitat, at the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosi and a PhD in Architecture, Design and Urbanism from the Autonomous University of Morelos.
The poster refers to a series of episodes of violence that occurred during the night of September 26, 2014, in which Iguala municipal police attacked students of the Normal Rural School Ayotzinapa in Mexico. The events left many wounded and dead, as well as the famous 43 missing students. Eréndiad explains her design “I created this poster responding to the call organized by the artist Francisco Toledo and the Institute of Graphic Arts of Oaxaca, they invited the internacional community to participate in the design of a poster allusive to the disappearance of 43 students from Ayotzinapa. The poster shows a positive and hopeful vision for Mexican society, is a visual game in which 43 black tears shed become seeds that generate the possibility of creating something new. For Mexicans it very difficult to accept the situation of violence and impunity that occurs in our country, however, we are good people who are looking for a change, a better future”.
