Xochimilco is a Mexican place full of culture, history, nature, color, tradition and music.


I represented an iconic place in Mexico city: "Xochimilco". I wanted to show people this part of the Mexican culture, that is full of nature, history, color, tradition and music. In the frontside of my design: the natural place with the famous "trajineras" which are small boats to ride through this magical place. In the backside: an abstraction of the "trajinera", the water and the typical mexican singer: the "mariachi".

Xochimilco, Mexico city, MEXICO

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

Because I want it to reach many people as possible all around the world. And hopefully they will get interested in knowing more about Mexican culture and traditions.
