Over 100 photos were presented to participants in the first edition of Archival Photos Reimagined. One of those photos struck a cord with Ramon Alejandro Sedano, motivating him to participate.
"As I was looking through the archived photos, I stumbled upon a picture from the 1970s. It was a photograph of a student creating a poster by hand. Although my knowledge of early graphic design is lacking, this image resonated with me. Back then, there were no computers or digital software to create mockups and illustrations," he said, a reality that existed until 1973, when the first graphics software application was developed. "Instead, you had to make them manually. I learned this analog process in my first graphic design class at Central Piedmont. My fascination with design, from its early stages to what it has become now, never ceases to amaze me."
Like the student in the photo, Ramon grabbed a pen and pencil and started creating.
