Vera Gonzalez Ponce – Starlight

with Guy Meldem, Nicole Udry

Starlight is a magazine that celebrates inclusion, socio-cultural diversity and sexuality through reggaeton. It is a tool that is designed to give a voice to people who are often marginalised, in order to highlight the invisibilities of our society. This issue offers keys to understanding and food for thought for a more equitable society. Desire manifests itself through images and these always have a primary intention. They are mainly dominated by the male gaze, but by taking things into our own hands this can change. It is possible to reverse perspectives and power dynamics. Be the protagonists of your own desires. Be proud of your own bodies. Be the stars of your own fantasies and of your lives.

Service Design - 2022

During the service design course, the 3rd year of the Graphic Design, Photography and Media & Interaction Design bachelor's degree programs realized multi-media projects. A collaboration of the Visual Communication department with the theme of SDGs (*Sustainable Development Goals). The theme named "For a good cause, make the SDGS a reality" aims to develop a cause close to the heart of the different student groups. Each project is composed of at least two different supports, one primary and one secondary. The projects could therefore take any form the students deemed relevant, be it a website, editions and posters, a video sequence, or even virtual reality.

Lost Records

Lost Records

with Ronny Hunger

Sometimes you don’t know that something has been lost — until it’s found again. How many brilliant lost, neglected and forgotten artists can there be? How many albums have been forgotten? How many have been lost? How many were rejected by labels because of political content, critical album artworks or band names? How many didn’t make it through a release and were eliminated or shelved for lack of success? How many dreams, hopes and statements were destroyed? We found 8 of these forgotten albums and worked on the record cover artworks, we tried to catch the mystical mood of these lost recordings, we tried to capture this forgotten music and tried to tell these incredible stories.
