Tertulia Talks: Graphic Design in Brazil
October 15, 2020 @ 12:00 am
Get to know more about Brazilian graphic design, from the military dictatorship period, through the late 1980’s re-democratization process, to today. The history of graphic design in Brazil is as rich, mixed, and diverse as the history of its people. It officially started with the arrival of the Portuguese Royal Family in the country in 1808. The plurality of this history will be highlighted in this lecture, focusing on the past six decades. From the 1960s, when the first design college was created in Brazil, to the present day, we will see posters, logos, publications, album covers, typographies, that marked each decade.
