Happy Together

An extraordinary event made the world’s headlines at the end of last year, when the leaders of Cuba and the United States made statements about the restoration of diplomatic relations between their countries. More than half a century of historic differences gave way to a new stage of dialogue that has filled the context with expectations and questions. Happy Together / Felices juntos is a project that proposes Exchange between Cuban and U.S. designers, with the intention of representing the possible encounter of their nations. A total of 26 posters depict graphic and animated characters – icons of the two cultures – interacting in the setting of Havana’s Malecon seawall. In an alternating way, characters from both countries, reinterpreted in the most diverse manners, reflect the concerns of the poster-makers themselves.

Twelve Cuban designers worked with 12 U.S. animated characters, and 12 U.S. designers worked with 12 Cuban characters. We here at OnCuba now bring you a sampling of the unique results of this effort.
