Solution

Perhaps the landmarks of Mexico are not well known by the world, which made me sad. But still I wanted to make my proposal for my country. So I chose the four most representative and decided to immerse them in what is Mexico for me and for the world. That's how my proposal started ...

When traveling throughout Mexico, you will no doubt come across colorful banners that are strung up with cut out papers to decorate a variety of scenes. These festive banners consist of sheets of tissue paper with patterns cut out on them. Mexican craftsmen use punches, knives, hammers, chisels, and scissors to cut holes in the tissue.

So, I choose this representative, beautiful and colorful style of paper-cut "papel picado" to reprensents the most iconics monuments of Mexico. And in this way highlight the beauty of the architecture lines of the four monuments.

People should have the happiness and beauty of Mexico in their pocket.

Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?

Mexico is a beautiful explosion of colors, celebration, dance, happiness, hospitality, culture, traditions, history, creativity and art. You can not represent a country so fascinating without taking into account that great explosion. The chopped paper is made by Mexican artisans with great detail. Just as they were built each of its monuments throughout history. (Chichen Itza, Bellas artes, Ángel de la Independencia y la Catedral ) This represents Mexican love and passion.
