The Lotería Project, by Nailivic Studios

Taking inspiration from the iconic imagery of this multi-generational game, to create new and relevant designs, The Lotería Project is a tool for education, self-awareness and change. Each image provides an opportunity to explore our own personal journey, as well as reflect upon our connection with our community. The stories behind each design encourage us to consider our past, our present, our environment, our identity, our fears and our capacity for growth and action.
