Posters for agitation
Raúl Goñi Workshop
Posters for agitation
The poster as a communication tool. The graphic designer with critical thinking, looking for problems, at the service of society, satirical, provocative and that makes us think about how the world could be. The posterist as a mass agitator. The poster artist in search of graphic excellence. In this workshop we worked on the positioning of the future designer and his social role as a message issuer.
We worked from the word towards the graphic expression of the idea using, exploring and experimenting with the resources of graphic design to project a message in the public space.
