Golden Bee 13 Moscow Global Biennale of Graphic Design – UTE

Very proud to finally announce that my student Ariel Guevara (who studies Graphic Design at the Universidad UTE) has been selected in the prestigious Golden Bee 13 Moscow Global Biennale of Graphic Design in Russia.

The Golden Bee is considered to be one of the best biennales of graphic design in the world so it is very hard to describe in words how proud I am of my student. Ariel’s work will be exhibited in Moscow started next week and then it will begin a world tour in various countries around the world.

A special mention to Martín Pastor for making a wonderful interview for the Universidad UTE of which you can read the full feature here.

More photos of the exhibition coming soon.

Alex Cherres

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.
