In the subject of graphic application projects with Martí Ferré we have projected a country in a bottle and its secondary packaging, a poster, an editorial publication and a volumetric element or material. All of this is conducted through different dynamics such as workshops, presentations and group corrections, mindstorming on graphic elements, brainstorming, etc. And with the previous breakdown and analysis of the parts of a graphic project to treat them individually, understand them and generate better graphic results in their unification.
Some of the Projects of the course:
Rosa maria de los Heros – Argentina
The project focuses on interpreting and communicating the country of Argentina through color, typography, image and material. In order to disintegrate the country into these elements it was first necessary to do some research and understand what aspect of the country was to be revealed.
In this case, there are two sources of inspiration. The first, the story about the origin of the name of Argentina. The second engine of this project was the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo as a symbol of struggle against the ravages of the dictatorship. From these two pillars, it was possible to communicate values such as the mirage of expectations and the voice, the opinion, the implication of its people as a “thread” that unites and mobilizes the country.

Soraya Alba Marquez- Iceland
The project reflects the concept of solitude in the most isolated areas of Iceland where there are only deserts of lavas, waterfalls, volcanoes and uninhabited areas. The most austere, solitary and at the same time resistant and strong way of life in the small isolated farms lost in nothingness. The intention is to capture the isolation, the long and dark winters, the isolation, and the strength of its inhabitants in front of this other harder and more hostile face of Iceland.

Paula Terra – Greenland
In the representation of the bottle and its packaging has been represented with the colors the 3 elements that define the climatic conditions of the country and transmit the calm of the population through the composition and proportions. The poster refers to the hunting of the Inuit, with the letter O as the main element it is possible to recreate the ice hole to be able to hunt. The publication consists of 40 images that show the set of 40 words that the Inuit use to express the different stages of snow and ice. Snow is part of the Inuit lifestyle and this proximity is transmitted with a texture that refers to tradition, with a more familiar and close character. The representative volume of Greenland represents the hunting of the Inuit through the use of materials. The sculptural format is due to the construction of large ice sculptures that were used to orient themselves in the landscape and indicate the areas suitable for hunting. In addition, their sharp form represents the hunting tools and the environment in which they were carried out.

Leo Kulisevsky – Palestine
This project tries to escape from the hegemonic representation of Palestine where it is always represented by fear and war. Starting from the Palestinian tradition of reading the coffee grounds and the forms it leaves, I take the idea to develop the chosen concept: land. These forms help me to represent the forced territorial fragmentation that exists in the country and to speak of the territory as a living place that resists.
