How ana.delao started their illustration or graphics journey
Who are you known as?
Center on Latin American and Iberian Studies
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a group of academics doing research on all aspects of Latin America, including: politics, society, culture, archeology, history, forestry, business. Our audience are undergraduate and graduate students, other researchers, NGOs, and sponsors.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We want an illustration to be used as header in our website.
The illustration should reflect Latin America.
We do not want stereotypes or maps.
We want something that combines the modern and the old.
One idea is a graphic reinterpretation of a mayan tablet. Maybe the modern can be added by playing with the graphics and changing the color. An example of a mayan tablet is here: http://www.telesurtv.net/export/sit…705216.jpg
Another idea is to play with various elements from the region. I am attaching an image of a magazine that does something like that.
