Homage to André Stolarski

Fábio Prata

The poster is a personal homage to the Brazilian designer André Stolarski. His first name is printed in different font sizes, indicated by the green numbers. The ruler in centimetres helps the observer in assessing the real dimensions of the characters. In this sense, the poster works as a practical tool to help the designer in its daily tasks of choosing typesizes and evaluating text legibility. The poster size is 66 x 96 cm and was printed on silk screen in dark blue and neon green.

    The purpose of this essay is to examine the relationship among graphic design practices, cultural institutions and public audience. The analysis of each one of these components in the context of the contemporary dynamics provides the basis for a meaningful communication strategy, one that accomplishes institutional economic and social missions, provides designers guidance in their production and fulfils audiences personal interests and social expectations.
