Millennium Fellowship Project: Ikigai
During the Millennium Fellowship we were able to provide accompaniment to the group of local artisans in Comunidad Lomas Modelo, Monterey, Mexico. An identity of their products was created in which their Otomi culture is reflected, also some articles were made in order to give a good image to their products and more presence in the events they attend, like: a logo, a banner, boxes with stickers for their handmade dolls and business cards. Likewise, they were supported in the creation of social media accounts to boost their sales, and ideas of innovation were offered to them so that they can diversify their products, and create collection dolls for example: Catrina and Frida versions for their handmade dolls -for being important characters in the history of Mexico.
