Retroavangarda Gallery – Opening

Last week was the official opening of the Retroavangarda Gallery in Warsaw, Poland.

During the ceremony 20 posters were exhibited from many famous designers from all around the world such as Stephan Bundi, Mono Grinbaum, HOMEWORK, Slobodan Štetić, Mieczysław Wasilewski, and my fellow Ecuadorian Mario Fuentes.

I was honoured that my poster ‘White Tiger Melts’ (created 10 years ago) was part of this special exhibition.

A huge thanks to Anna Kłos for the kind invitation and the best of luck with the future of the gallery.

Collaboration with Niklaus Troxler

It was an honor to collaborate with the design icon Niklaus Troxler for the Worldwide Graphic Designers – Cultural Heritage Poster Exhibition.

The project gathered 105 designers from 30 different countries. The remarkable result of their collaborations were 69 posters, dedicated to the cultural heritage of their countries. The aim of WGD was once again successful: People with a different origin, language, culture or gender, were inspired and created without physical contact, taking advantage of the opportunity that is given to them by modern technology.

Poster for Tomorrow 2017 Book

Last week it was great to finally receive the Poster for Tomorrow 2017 book which featured my selected poster ‘Glide Location’.

This year the topic was Freedom of Movement and over 7000 posters were submitted from all around the world. In December the 100 selected posters began a world tour in more than 50 cities.

This is the 7th occasion that I have been selected for this prestigious international competition which is absolutely crazy for me to even to think about.

A huge thanks to David Jiménez for helping the book to arrive safely to Quito, Ecuador.
