During the last week of December 2017 it was an honour to be one of the Ecuadorian designers to create a poster for the ‘DIGNAVIDAD Exposición de Carteles’ organised by the Acervo Ecuatoriano del Cartel.
The exhibition took place at the Terminal Terrestre in the city of Ibarra, Ecuador of which raised the topic of consumerism during the Christmas period.
Last month was the official inauguration of ‘Speak Up Poster 2017 International Invitational Poster Exhibition’ in Mexico. For the exhibition I created the poster ‘Skull Bullet Teeth’ based on the theme: Dangerous World Now, A Better World Tomorrow.
A huge thanks to Luis Yáñez for the kind invitation.
During the last week of November was the opening of the exhibition Ecuador. Diseño Mega diverso which was part of the BICeBé 2017.
It was an honour to have my poster Dead Leaf selected to be part of this exhibition with such iconic designers such as James Verdesoto, Vanessa Zuñiga, Pablo Iturralde, Belén Mena and many more talented Ecuadorians. Also a special mention to my student Pablo Machado Encalada for being selected.
From the beginning of the year I have been working extremely hard with the student Alex Cherres of whom I had the great pleasure to be the director of his thesis and final project at the UTE Diseño Gráfico Publicitario. This was my first time as a director of such a project and to be honest I did feel nervous (I am only human) but confident that with a hard work ethic we could achieve good results.
And so during the last week of November we had his final defence in front of his beautiful family and friends. It is with great pleasure to announce that Alex was simply amazing and he achieved a perfect 10/10 for a wonderful presentation and project.
A huge thanks to the evaluators Ivonne Jara and Renato Barros for all your help and advice during this time. Of course a special mention to the coordinator Santiago Pazmiño for your knowledge and guidance.
Finally to you Alex: It is hard to express in words of how so very proud of you I am. I pushed you and I pushing you and I hope you now understand the reason why. You have created a special project and I am sure if you keep this mentality and attitude that you will be a huge success in future. I put my heart and soul into helping you and you returned the favour and for that I am truly grateful.
