Solution

"The angel" is a representative monument for mexican people, so I wanted to use it in this design, but not as the typical representations made before. I used colors on his clothes, the pink represents the skirts of folklore dance, and it also has the colors of mexico's flag on it, I used yellow and blue for the sky to be more colorful, and on the other side there's Teotihuacán which is also very known for many people and really significant for us and our history.

Which place, city and country is featured in your design? (place/city/country)

Mexico City, Teotihuacán, Mexico

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

The angel monument and Teotihuacan are two things that basically describe and indentify Mexico, both are situated in Mexico City and this place is the capital of the country. The angel represents out freedom, it is a monument to all the people who died fighting for out independence. And on the other side, Teotihuacan is where we come from, an old city where our acenstors lived and where our civilization and culture begin.
