Pocket Posters from Cuba
On May 15th the designers Tinti Nodarse and Frank Baltodano opened their exhibition Pocket Posters at Fabrica de Arte Cubano, as part of the First Biennial of Design in Cuba. This innovative exhibition combines poster design with postal stamps creating tiny pieces glued onto white envelopes as if they were traditional letters.
Franks explains the concept of the designs: “There are pieces in the exhibition are designed from what should be a seal, but others are designed from what should be a poster. I like these sort of experiments; they force us to rethink what a seal and what a poster are; I like the challenge of the readability of the new dimensions, the wisdom to choose the necessary elements for the format to be readable and the message not be lost…”
