Designs that elevated: 68 Voices 68 Hearts

We can only love what we know—this is the premise of “68 Voices 68 Hearts”, a series of short animated indigenous stories narrated in the 68 native languages of Mexico.

Mexico City-based graphic designer Gabriela Badillo directed the project, which visually reinterprets indigenous culture in a way that is inclusive and contemporary, circumventing stubborn stereotypes.

The 68 communities actively participated in the development, deciding which story should represent their ethnic group. Children drew the sketches on which illustrators based final designs. Adults and elders translated and did voice-overs.

A successful Kickstarter, 68 Voices is a declaration that these cultures are ongoing, living threads in the colorful fabric that is Mexico.
