gold medal at Latin american design awards (2017); selection of 28th international biennial of graphic design brno (2018) and 12th adg brazilian graphic design biennial (2017)
This brief anthology presents 22 poems by Vinicius de Moraes — one of the most prominent Brazilian poets and a Bossa Nova founder — in the form of an unpretentious small book. Love incantation is the prevailing theme of his literature and the challenge for the design was to create a book so fascinating as his poems. The graphic project commissioned visual artist Filipe Jardim to create a series of brushstrokes, abstracts and figurative drawings. His illustrations was used with freedom. Images was colorised, cut, used in different scales and mixed. The color variation used with the black strokes and the multiple use of the images, favoured by an asymmetric text grid, dictated a surprising rhythm where each page could be poetically admired together with the texts.
