The goal was to create a typographic approach in honor to Oporto for a new design shop based in this same city called "Take Away Porto", that promotes graphic design, product design, gastronomy, literature and illustration from Portugal.
The exhibition intended to reflect a different perspective from several designers and illustrators from different generations of designers from Oporto. The Porto exhibition inclueded 46 different proposals.
My participation shows how my city has always inspired my work.
My passion with the patterns was unconsciously born with the tiles on the city walls,
and the typographic signage in the streets as well.
This color choice was here to represent a new generation, and a way to re-think / remake what the city offer to us, accentuating its past assets in a non-nostalgic way - a reinterpretation from the past towards the future.
It was an honor to particiapate, side by side, with some of the best designers/ illustrators in the country.
