Mexican American is the name of my graduate design thesis which consists in three visual projects that explore the relationship between the United States and Mexico. In the project “What´s in the Mexican Newspapers” I use slow design as a methodology to reveal the influence that the American culture has over Mexican media.
The last part of this thesis is a visual identity for the Sinaloa Drug Cartel. I use branding as a story-telling tool to make my audience understand the influence of the United States in the violence that has spread through Mexico in the past decade.
The following book compiles the research and writing I did to support my visual projects.
