Successful launch for GAYLATINOS.es

I’m happy to hear that the website GAYLATINOS that I created for Stop Sida Barcelona has become an instant success – it started with so many hits, they had to extend the bandwith only after the first two weeks!

This portal explains all legal information to gay and bisexual Latinamerican men who are considering to move to Spain. It supplies them with all the information about health issues, accomodation possibilities and leisure websites.

The site appeals very vivid through several incorporated videos which point out cultural and legal differences between Spain and Latinamerican countries. There is also a link to take part in the new big survey for Latinamerican men, whose form design I also helped developing.

The overall design of the site is inspired by Pedro Almodóvar title sequences and their film design elements, since those films are enjoying a pan-hispanic popularity, especially in this male target scene.

The models of the pictures and videos are all volunteer workers of the nonprofit organization (Photos by Oscar García Ortega, videos by Jalif Studio).

“25” teaser campaign and new design blog

This is a post about some designs I didn’t do myself but have a very close relation to; once a week I teach the two last courses of the design school Werkkunstschule Lübeck

Over the last weeks the students of the sixth course have shaped a fantastic teaser campaign for the upcoming 25th anniversary party of the school.

The completely different motives for the posters and flyers evoke it would be all about an upcoming movie release (just displaying the title 25, the date and the URL of a website). This tongue-in-cheek method is to get the attention of the target group (potential new students and culturally interested citizens) in a creative way, using local elements.

At the same time the 7th course set up the website for it, which is also the school’s new student blog (in German). The page will equally showcase students’ artworks such as deal with general design-related topics – all this under the motto “Lübeck makes design”.

The first entry was their very own video clip production in which they portray the everyday life as a student at the Werkkunstschule Lübeck.

Have a look and see some very inspiring works!
