teachers and students must always remain free to inquire, to study and to evaluate, to gain new maturity and understanding; otherwise our civilization will stagnate and die.

although academic freedom is related to freedom of speech under the first amendment, the two are not co-extensive. first, the first amendment applies only to public schools, colleges and universities, which are legally deemed to be state actors. nonetheless, most institutions of higher education endorse some notion of academic freedom, which applies as a result of bargaining agreements, or historical understandings. source: the kids right to read project and the national coalition against censorship.

capstone abstract. capstone abstract.

Censorship exists—and is not always political. It might stem from a variety of motives, including morality and religion. The negative aspect is, that it is an instrument of suppression to freedom of expression and can manifest itself in distinctive shapes and forms. The positive aspect is, that it forms a sense of curiosity, which stimulates investigation. This forges an active role for the observer, which in return, can provoke a dialogue. How can censorship be implemented as an educational instrument thru visual communication design? This capstone project is an experiment on the act of censoring. It is a photographic and typographic experiment with the intent to construct an system—based upon the act of censoring— as a positive instrument with an educational function.

censorship hides parts of the truth and changes its meaning.

censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself, it is a hallmark of an authoritian regime. — potter stewart. supreme court justice.

Latin America designers are restless and loud,

they pursue and seduce their audience until you generate vast interest. They are full of emotions and feelings, which transcend into their work. They genuinely respect life as the ultimate expression of human condition. They share incredible similar concerns and fears. The governmental opposition and decades of political dictartorship have all contributed to the result in posters for which the artists participate not only in the creation of the language but also in the debate itself. The Pre-Hispanic culture has been a determining factor for Latin America design. In the early 1970’s, México had two universities which started to offer courses in design. México and Cuba are the main advocate of graphic design, primarily advertising in latin america. In Cuba, the tradition of poster production gained strength in 1960’s following the revolution led by dictator Fidel Castro. In fact, one peculiar commission poster designed by Eladio Rivadulla, was produced the night before Fidel Castro took power and spread right across the island the next morning about the celebration of his victory. The new government required the production of posters to convey political information to the population as well as information on health programs.

folklore and color are two of the most noticeable factors in latin america graphic design.

latin america design has shaped its identity for more than half a century so far.

The process to teach the Cuban society in how to read and write, and the cultural development that followed led to the immediate worldwide recognition of the poster.

The resistant work of the different Latin American artists make a mark and provide visual form of fusion and modernity. In each single work is possible to distinguish a root and origin, where customs and poetry seemed to go hand in hand. Diversity and Cultural Wealth designs have appeared on streets, in schools and business, analog printing and in use of digital media. The process for latin america designers is based in resources. For instance, posters printed in Cuba were done on poor quality paper thus creating a sense of importance

Over the past five years, economic freedom in Mexico has declined by 1.4 points. Deteriorations in the fiscal and regulatory environments have occurred in an environment of slow economic growth despite a reform-minded leadership bent on increasing competition and opening the economy to trade and investment. Mexico’s economic growth has been driven largely by integration with Canada and the U.S. in NAFTA, but economic performance remains far below potential. Despite a more open economic environment, business regulations continue to undermine economic efficiency. Ensuring more dynamic growth will require broader-based reforms to improve the investment climate and enhance the rule of law. BACKGROUND: President Enrique Peña Nieto took office in December 2012 and has made solid progress in reforming the constitution in the areas of education, energy, and telecommunications, but whether new legislation will boost competition is unclear. The government has moved to centralize power further with a fiscal reform that raised taxes and promised a return to deficit spending. A new anti-trust law has increased investor uncertainty. Efforts to reform the criminal justice system and combat endemic corruption that began in 2008 have lagged and are not expected to meet 2016 targets. The recent migration crisis on the border with the United States and the rise of citizen militias in Michoacán highlight weaknesses in Mexico’s security forces. The Peña Nieto administration contends that the homicide rate has declined, but conflicting government findings indicate otherwise. Organized crime is endemic.

experiment 01—unemployment rate fact: unemployment rate is 5.00% comparison: mexico unemployment rates are relatively low compared with other latin american countries raised questions: are this the faces of unemployment? do they look like the faces of unemployment?

independent press. independent press was born out of the empirical exposure from a 9-day trip to mĂŠxico. the citizens in mĂŠxico are individuals of a colorful society and from a thoughtful culture. yet, beneath the surface a plethora of social issues are undoubtedly noticeable. the lack of education, social injustice, economic instability and government corruption, to name a few, are in existence. the term independent press refers to any form of media, that is free of influence by government or corporate interest. however, in mĂŠxico, that is not the case for journalism. the government, mostly for their own benefit, often suppresses journalist and newspaper articles. censorship in newspapers, or freedom of expression for a journalist, is still present in the 21st century. the newspaper has been part of the cultural media for over 400 years. it is used to educate, enlighten, entertain and provide information that people need to make an intelligent and informed decision.


this project is an experiment on the act of censorship based in the appropriation of newspaper articles—written by actual journalist, about the current social issues in méxico. it is a typographical experiment at its core. for instance, the argument in how using lowercase letters instead of pausing sentences structures with the expected uppercase letter, produce a better flow for making reading agile and effortless—while conserving space—is put to the test. furthermore, by omitting certain words, a sense of curiosity can be establish within an spectator to farther investigate, this can be an active role for the observer. in the process of doing such experiment, word count was cut in half during the act of censoring and in return manipulated different outcomes of the original newspaper article. by doing this experiment, a question related to typography, the methods applied of censoring and experimentation arouse:

unemployment in méxico is becoming more and more troubling. young mexicans are the segment of the population that is most afected, sufering unemployment rates twice as high as those among adults. even worse, better-educated professionals have the highest unemployment rate. government eforts to raise educational levels in order to promote economic development have failed. some people blame the neo-liberal economic model, claiming it puts too high a priority on price stability, limits investment, restricts wage growth, and makes conditions even more precarious for the unemployed - a situation that has forced the government to permit indiscriminate growth in the informal, underground economy. still other critics cite increased emigration to the united states as proof of méxico inability to generate the jobs that people demand. the mexican economy faces a dilemma: either choose the path toward growth or choose to control inlation; the latter option has a negative impact on job growth. in méxico, industrial production grew by only 1.6% between january and may, yet inlation grew by 4.33% over the same period. méxico’s production problem is a serious one when compared with other latin american countries such as chile, argentina and brazil where industrial production grew 6.8%, 6.3% and 6.8%, respectively during those months. over the last ive years, the oicial unemployment rate in mexican cities has growth by 0.72% to reach 3.8%. although that igure is far below the unemployment indexes in the rest of latin america, the european union, the united states and much of asia, méxico faces a serious problem generating jobs. the mexican economy’s inability to generate jobs has become a chronic problem. according to ibrahim villaseñor, a mexican researcher currently in the economics doctor ate program at the complutense university of madrid, “the structural reforms begun by neo-liberal governments have limited the ability of economy to create jobs.” villaseñor says that the strategies of recent mexican governments have focused on three goals: irst, economic liberalization - above all, free trade. second, privatization of 1,200 stateowned companies; this has left only a portion of the energy sector in state hands. third, deregulation of the national legal framework to make it easier for the neo-liberal model to function.

our brains to engage in some creative fiction to make sense of what we are reading. designers are taking the familiar and removing parts, leaving just enough for the type to remain legible. characters are sometimes reduced to just their basic horizontal and vertical strokes, leaving only the bare minimum for our brains to decipher. if very few elements are on a page, the designer is leaving lots of room for imagination. by having vowels excluded, it is designed to reflect a state of development—something unfinished, yet at its best in a seemingly perpetual movement towards completion. reducing words to their most basic form has the effect of drawing the viewer into the type as they mentally complete the puzzle. source: computer arts collection. two thousand thirteen, typography volume 02 / part 02.

preschoolers whose parents read to them, tell stories, and sing songs tend to develop large role vocabularies, become better readers—and perform better in school.

research has shown that children who can recognize letters of the alphabet have an easier time learning to make connections between the letters and the sounds they stand for. children need to memorize the letter names, and they can do this through direct instructions along with many exposures to the letters in print. practice with writing the letters is a proven method for building and reinforcing letter recognition.

vowels are a speech sound made with your mouth open and your tongue in the middle of your mouth not touching your teeth or lips. When sounding vowels, your breath flows freely through the mouth. the alphabet letters a, e, i, o and u are vowels. this is five out of the twenty-six letters in the alphabet. the letter y is sometimes considered a sixth vowel because it can sound like other vowels. the vowels in the english language differ considerably between dialects. because of this, corresponding vowels may be written down with various symbols depending on the dialect under consideration. the english language alone can provide a list of short vowel words that could seem to be never ending. a short vowel word is any word that does not allow the vowel within it to generate that vowel’s long vowel sound. for instance, the word bug is a short vowel word, because there is no long u sound. the key difference between vowels and most consonants is that the passage of air from the lungs is not restricted in any way in the production of vowels. unlike consonants, each of the vowel letters has more than one type of sound or can even be silent with no sound at all. considering that you must move your lips or tongue to form consonants, but not vowels.

play has a basic role in the drama of a child’s development. it is a serious business for the child, his true means of learning and growing. every child should have a wide variety of play materials to evoke in him a spirit of inquiry; to develop physical manipulation to the fullest; to stimulate creative expression. he requires not only the miniatures of real objects in the adult world, but also building blocks, clay, finger paints, etcetera, that he can adapt to his particular needs. frank caplan, 1949. toy designer / educator. founder of creative playthings.
