Chá com

Featured at the 12th Brazilian Biennial of Graphic Design (2018)

The Chá com Cartas project aims to encourage the habit of handwriting letters. It proposes a reflection on interpersonal relationships in the contemporary world and investigates the feelings that a letter can provide. The project takes place through urban interventions and occupations of public space, using the writing of anonymous letters and postal art as a motto for the rediscovery of the city and for the experience of new forms of sociability.

The challenge in this project was to translate into graphic pieces the sensory experience of writing, communicating actions in a versatile and cheap way. The poster series was created in three steps inspired by the layers of graphical information that a mail receives before it is mailed. In the foreground, printing directly on the media. Then, gluing adhesive labels and stamps. Finally, the application of different stamps creating a tangle of textures and unique compositions.
