His poster design for Christos Nikos’s acclaimed film Apples (2020) won the Best Poster Design award at the 2021 Miami Film Festival.

“The design is the past of the festival, the future and its international soul reflected in a daring and modern way. The act of going to the cinema, the experience itself and the physical space, is very important and I think it is a good time to give it relevance after having been these times so far apart.” – Raúl Monge.
