Fake Tales of Santo Domingo
Project developed for Summer Sessions ’16 Mexico City.
Speculative Identity for Plaza Santo Domingo which purpose was to ask questions surrounding identity. What does it mean to design and identity? How can something so complex as the visual identity of a place, full of traditions and customs, be honest and true?
Santo Domingo is a town square which is notable for the presence of old-school letterpress printers and letter writers who in turn provide a sense of identity for Santo Domingo. The purpose was to let the square “talk about itself” through creating a series of ephemera that represented various narratives based both on real and fictitious places, events and characters.
