Workshop with Christopher Scott – CROMÍA 2014

Last week I was honoured to give a workshop at CROMÍA 2014 in Ibarra, Ecuador. The theme of the workshop was ‘The Social Poster’ and the topic the participants created for was the 2014 edition of Poster for Tomorrow – Work Right!

A huge thankyou to the Universidad Técnica del Norte who made me feel so welcome. To the 42 talented participants who worked so hard over the 3 days and even worked nearly double the scheduled hours for the workshop. To Mario Fuentes who was so kind to visit the workshop on the final day to give the participants that final push of guidance and inspiration. To the Ministerio de Cultura for inviting me to be part of the wonderful event and making everything so easy and enjoyable. And finally a massive thankyou to my 2 amazing assistants (Santiago Gómez and Viviana Urvina) for without you it would not have been possible to manage and create such creative and inspiring posters during the workshop.
