Matias studied in the school of design and in the University of Fine Arts and work in advertising agency Cardinal, and work as a freelance designer too with web development. “The poster design is my passion because is the most significant medium to communicate things and stay in the memory of the people with a few elements. Is about to connect things and make a powerful message. I’m a graphic designer and web developer but the thing i love and is my passion is the poster designs and identity design” tell us Matias.
In 2011 Japan had a terrible tsunami and 22.000 citizens died, this was a terrible disaster for this country and the rest of the world was shocked. The poster “Hope for Japan” was made for an exhibition of posters to give a message of hope to the country and many designers made a great posters. “I try to transmit clearly with a few elements and high contrast, the situation of the country, represents with the silhouette of a sad person with a tear of blood, and in the same time this silhouette represents the tsunami entering to the country. I think the design poster help people to never forget this tragedy and to transmit a message of hope” says Matias.
