Large format digital print design for advertisement. The work was done entirely from a very low quality print of the logo (found on a letter), as the client had no original vector file of the image. It had to be reconstructed, and as no other image was provided, it was used to create a dynamic background matching the contents of the campaign. Techniques: Typography, pixel reconstruction, vectorisation. Software used: InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop. Printing process: Digital + PET-UV laminated. 300 gr/m photopaper. 1646 X 665 mm.

A studio photograph of a model wearing a religious ceremonial gowns was retouched to visualize how different can the inner self be from its exterior image. The teeth of a young mandril were addad to increase the effect. The stenght and impact when restructuring new symbols to pre-conceived images is here evident. Two versions were made. The final one swown below.

+ exploration of techniques Painting used for educational purposes at the Santo Tomas Campus of Universidad Del Mar of Chile, Graphic Representation lectures. The work was made with typographic ink, primary colours only (K端ppers chromatics), in a transparent-layered technique similar to the one used by Jan Van Eyck. The scanning process would not render the image intensity in full sun light. Therefore digital retouching was necessary to bring the vibrance of colours back to life. After that, additional retouch of colours was made to bring the image to the maximum colour impact possible for screenviewing.
