June July August 08
Prejudgment and intolerance have always existed, and now they have more diffusion media. The unequal treatment and stereotypes promote hate. So we want to make a statement. The exercise of We Love People included in this issue of Etel is our small demonstration pro tolerance. In the other hand, and as always, Etel comes very mixed, in our design section we include an interview and portfolio of memela collective, a group of young designers that show us their interpretation of Mexican design. In this Issue we present the interesting work of the Italian Giorgia Roversi and Mauricio Zárate, Mexican painter. We also interview Edgar Echegaray, creator of the Golden Reinbow Kid project; and Montag, answer some questions about his music. We are happy of having the photography of Victoria H. Acuña and Naomi Vona. All this, among other things that you will be discovering in this number. Thanks to all the new collaborators and people who has been sending their work, You rock!

Design-illustration Colectivo Memela Interview and portfolio
DISEÑO - ILUSTRACIÓN
Interview: Laura Rodríguez
Design: Cynthia Tacho
Memela is one of the most outstanding collectives in the illustration field in Mexico, whose folklor and urbanism characterize its singular style. We present a sample of their work and a brief interview to them.
E: Who conform the collective? /// We are conformed by four graphic designers: Frank, Lecuona, Jovo, and Peter. E: When and how memela is born? /// Borne to principles of March of the 2007, the idea was originated with the intention of shaping everyday images of our surroundings representing this in illustrations with the purpose of projecting Mexico to other cultures, is when Frank invited to Lecuona, Jovo and Peter to be part of this collective. The name of memela came up from a brainstorm, taking this word by its loudness and connotation.
E: how did you begin to make photoillustration? /// We felt that illustration had something missing, having in mind our passion about photography we fused the illustrations with photographs of digitalized media, seeing the result, we decided to take our own photos looking for jobs with our friends and making calls by Internet having by purpose the union of these two resources projecting a coexistence of the real thing with nonreal. E: what is your gold as a group? What are the objectives in memela? /// To create a personal style, to go beyond design as a collective, to have an office or publicity agency, to participate in diverse advertising campaigns, international and national.
E: In some of your illustrations you show interest towards images and phrases related to the Mexicans characters, what else motivates you to make an illustration? What sort of styles and messages want to manage? /// Our dreams move us, our experiences, leaving harmonic messages in people, reflecting it in a celebration of colors where everyone is invited.
E: In what memela is different from the other collectives? /// We fuse the diversion and the formality in the projects, having constant changes that our surroundings request, take a photo or illustration and see where we can get. E: How do you see the â€œsceneâ€? of design and illustration that is created at the moment in Mexico? /// Very good, there is much talented people as Dr. Alderete, FACE, hula hula, freak kolors, digitalis-diamonds, but spaces
of expression and support of the government and private institutions are needed. E: How do you organize to distribute the job and how is your place of work? ///We make proposals along the week, later we get together, we expose our works, and we fuse our ideas. In projects with our clients we work all the creative process altogether and then work is divided.
not working in memela? /// We work like designers in different companies, Frank is manager of the area of graphical design in Galleries, Sergio Bustamante, Lecuona this in charge of the advertising area in Cobian footwear, Jovo is manager of a corporative unit in a marketing research center of the University of Guadalajara and Peter studies the Degree of graphical Design and has a serigraphic factory. We handled it like this: Jovo: Bicycles, work, cinema,
E: What do you do while you are
Jodorowsky, nintendo, celebration. Lecuona: Celebration, he buys gummies, painting, and cinema. Frank: Music, cinema, celebration, he buys chocolates, painting, work, discs, Nintendo, and he draws. Peter: work, school, Mac, guitar (laughs). â€˘ Visit: http://www.myspace.com/

“I think that we all want to show ourselves and part of that is showing what we think. For me, photography is always a: ‘look what I see’ and I’m not an exception. A lot of what I know, I own it to Internet, looking constantly to photography (mostly flickr) it’s how I have learned, I’ve been discovering photography like another thing besides ‘the picture whit my friends in the reunion’… I take pictures of what I see and I like

or whatever it occurs to me and comes out ok. Sometimes is the color, the shape, the light or the situation.”
