MIS – Museum of Image and Sound of Rio de Janeiro

Flávia Nalon

The Museum of Image and Sound of Rio de Janeiro is an institution devoted to preserve and showcase the rich cultural history of the city. The visual identity uses fragments of texts extracted from music leads, poems, films, humour shows and political discourses as messages to the audience. Set in a typeface that has positive and negative italic versions, the messages displayed carry with them the slanted forms of the museum’s new building, connecting content, identity and architecture.

    Education

    Vernacular Type: An Experimental Graphic Reading of the Spontaneous

    • Undergraduate

    2001 – 2002

    • FAU – USP (Brazil)

    Research, documentation and graphic experimentation about the existing vernacular typography in the city of São Paulo, valuing the spontaneity and visual opulence contained in this form of expression. Tracing a parallel between the text “Manuelzão e Miguilim”, by Brazilian writer Guimarães Rosa, and the vision of the metropolis’ inhabitant, the result is a book divided in two main parts: type documentation and the free experimentation based on these images.

    Gut zum Druck

    • Postgraduate

    2011 – 2012

    • University of Applied Sciences Mainz (Germany)

    Having as central issue the emergence of typographic principles and how they can be interpreted, an extensive research gathers thoughts, statements, theories and rules about typography, as well as images of recent works. On the online tool, texts and images are placed side by side and can be sorted by means of different criteria, allowing the analysis of contemporary graphic design from the typographic principles perspective.
