For its debut issue, the student-run magazine El caldo at Centro de diseño, cine y televisión pursued a tongue-praising theme. Inspired by Mexican Spanish ambiguities and all types of idioms deriving directly from the “lengua” (“tongue)” concept, El caldo’s debut edition brings together multiple contributions ranging from poems and short stories to photo essays and interviews.
Written contributions reunite essays by Berke Gold, Daniel Berkstein Guillemot, Sebastián M. Finck, Natalia Padilla, Karla Muñoz, and Radamés Vargas.
The typographic approach also found its way through these ambiguites, choosing plurality over monotony as a manner of illustrating the diversity upon which the community builds itself. Hence the cover title is set in an array of Black Mamba, Manicotti, Roslindale and Krsna; subtitles in BRRR and Druk; and body text inLausanne.
