Edgar Allan Poe’s Amusing Tales

Interview with Emma Garcia, Bronze Laus Award

Emma Garcia has been awarded a Bronze Laus Award, given by the Association of Graphic Designers and Art Directors of the FAD (ADG-FAD) in the Student category, for her Final Project of the Bachelor of Design 'Edgar Allan Poe's Amusing Tales'.

Emma, what does winning this award mean to you?
The Laus Award has reaffirmed my decision to dedicate myself to graphic design. It has been a recognition of all the effort, dedication and enthusiasm put into the project, but also in the future.

Your project blurs the boundary between container and content to highlight the meaning of the text and create an active reading experience. What influenced you to choose this theme?
‘Edgar Allan Poe's Amusing Tales' is an experimental book that merges my two main areas of interest: graphic design and literature. I looked for a way for them to complement each other and work together to the point of blurring the boundaries between disciplines.

Emma, you have now finished your studies, tell us about your experience at EINA?
EINA is where I have created the foundations of what I am (and will be) as a designer and as a person. I take with me knowledge, memories and very important people, who will always be with me.
