No Words Posters

Rico Lins and about 100 renowned designers were invited to participate in the book No Words Posters Armando Milani, among them Milton Glaser, Stefan Sagmaister, Alain le Quernec, Uwe Loesh, Niklaus Troxler and Isidro Ferrer.

 

There are posters where there is no shadow of doubt, regardless of verbal messages. For more sophisticated and ambiguous that the image articulation can be — and the mastery of graphic language — inks, shapes and colors take possession of the generous paper surface that receives them, leaving a definitive, irreversible mark.

Always impressed me the ability that the poster has to work with so many issues in synthetic and personal ways, where the artist’s style is not felt as a trap but as something that frees . This reflection confronts us with what I consider one of the main challenges and consequently creative stimuli: the balance between freedom and limits.

I think it is that friction that generates the great energy of the poster and what makes it so universal: to show that with a few notes one can make a symphony.

Design para todos?

The exhibition brings together twenty posters developed with the theme of the fifth edition of the BrazilianDesign Biennial – Design For All – carrying in its almost homonymous title a provocative question mark precisely to instigate reflection and questioning visitors about its relevance.

To contribute to a healthy diversity of views and visual language, twenty names of different generations and professional market segments were invited Being based in nine states of the country, what they all have in common is – besides the presence of praise in the current Brazilian design scenario, communication and arts – the ability to articulate a critical discourse through a piece, so concise, impactful and now increasingly multiplatform, such as a poster.

The development process of the posters included a Creative Workshop immersion held over three days in September 2014 at Il Bell Resort in Jurerê, Florianópolis, where the posters and the curators were able to discuss the different realities and needs of users of a design project in our contemporary society.

the result is a strong set of communication pieces that incorporates the same plurality evoked in many aspects and recipients of Design for All: to clarify, discomfort or inspire the visitors.

Good reflecting.

Bruno Porto e Rico Lins, Curators
