For the first Poster Monday spot of the year we are featuring the poster “Transforming the World” designed by Alma Real from Guadalajara, Mexico. Alma is Member of the World Wide Graphic Designers, GMO Free, Speak Up Posters, and collaborator of Collective Autopsy, among other international collectives of graphic designers dedicated to the poster design with which she has exhibited her work in countries such as Korea, Cyprus, Indonesia, Greece, Ecuador, Mexico among others. In November 2017, with the “Dokdo Beautiful Island of Korea” poster, she received the award for excellence granted by the Korean Design Forum in Seoul. Alma is a full-time professor at the Autonomous University of Aguascalientes, dedicated to the cultural dissemination of graphic design through various academic and cultural events.
The concept behind the poster “Transforming the World” poster is One world in two opposing visions and was born from the invitation of SUP with the intention of making visible world problems that raise awareness about a better future. To the letters of the word world are added the image of the earth accompanied by phrases that in the upper part of the poster refer to world problems, to transform into positive concepts in the lower part of the poster. “I think the poster is the ideal way for a position that favors reflection but above all that promotes actions, the only way to see it to work in a better future. The positive concepts included in the poster of the actions that each person can achieve and thus collaborate for a more just, harmonious and inclusive global coexistence”, “The design of the poster and the design in general is to generate meanings through the images, establishing connections is all that the design seeks” says Alma.
