  • ABC X
    in 2012 abc design magazine brought to brazil ellen lupton, a graphic designer, writer, curator and educator, who is well known for her fascination and study within typography; and luigi colani, a german industrial designer who is famous for his organic design forms, which it called "biodynamic” approach.

    the identity of the event was created to bring different perspectives from two different design areas. in that context, abc x came to promote a dynamic that instigates participants to think otherwise.

  • javier mariscal is one of the most important spanish designers and creator of the animation 'chico & rita', which was nominated for an oscar in 2012, was invited to come to brazil to talk about the creative process that he developed at his studio in barcelona.

    these events happened at curitiba, são paulo and rio de janeiro, getting 950 participants in interviews, lectures, and workshops.
  • the identity of this event was based on his particular style. which reflects a naive, childish and playful language. the sketches bring to mind the cartoon style of his work, with a lot of colour and common deconstruction.

    the pieces, created for the communication, varies from digital, like hotsite, email marketing, communication in social networks, to printed pieces as special invitations, posters and folders distribuited at brazilian universities.

  • the photography needs practical experience, giving to the viewer the opportunity to live and experience what is observed. the temp magazine tries to supply this need.

    temp, my final project at the university, is a photography magazine that intend to inspire and stimulate the reflexion and critic of contemporaneity issues about photography. beyond the goal of just be a referential magazine about photography, temp magazine is an generator object of affection and experience, turning into a collectible material because of the graphic cares and the finishing and different papers used at the publication.
  • for the project, were made researches about aesthetics and photography history, considering social impacts and cultural diversity. the technical aspects of the publication, such as formats, layout, grid, typography, were conceived by the aesthetics categories with the application of conceptual categories of visual techniques applied by gestalt. with these researches results was made a graphic project by the pilot edition, that brought the theme "the end".
    as this edition is the first one, it must bring a theme related with it.

    so, why not see it at the contrary point and talk about a theme eternally questionable: the end? The end does not just mean death, but also the end of a war, of a relationship; an end for the end, or for a new beginning.

    temp also has the goal of be an accessible magazine for a new photographers and for a public who is interested in and appreciate the field, with no restriction about what they do for living.
