Colors #84 – Apocalypse

Publication, August 2012

Colors #84 is a guide to the end of the world. The cover/poster is a reinterpretation of the Maya Calendar based on natural disasters and relevant topics about apocalypse. The main graphic design reference to this project was "the whole earth catalogue", an American counterculture catalog, "sort of like Google in paperback form" according to Steve Jobs.  

The biggest challenge was to combine five different languages in the same composition, without losing harmony.

On the back poster, there is a kit of objects that everyone needs to have in order to survive, from slingshot rifles to a cigarette butt.
