Unfinished UNESCO Poster

From the vault! An idea for the 2009 UNESCO official poster of International Mother Language Day (February 21). My idea was to put the information, seen on top in English and French, into all the speech bubbles below using their respective languages. Thus, one poster could essentially be printed in many countries, highlighting the importance and diversity of language itself.

However, I couldn't find translators and the whole thing just dissolved away... anyhoo, here's what I created.


  1. It's a cool idea, but I think it would be a lot cooler if you could get them translated.

  2. Well, it doesn't actually make sense unless they're translated. The text you see is, in a sense, just filler text.

    I was going to do a Comeaux-sapien but realized that was the one language the majority of mankind wants to disappear forever!

  3. That's not unfinished!! theres MILLIONS of people who speaks near-to-death languages. did you know about this fact ?
