Typeface Design ● Type Specimen
Stevenage Typeface is a revival of an old graphic feature of the city of Stevenage, located in the north of London.
From a photographic collection of traces of a slab font in various parts of the city, the construction of the rest of the alphabet was developed in order to create an official font for the new town center wayfinding and mapping system developed by @maynarddesign commissioned by Stevenage Borough Council.
This project was made in collaboration with Natanael Gama.
Epithalamium is a poetry magazine created by neurologists. Had the pleasure to design this craft custom typeface and all the editorial content inside of this first printed edition launched in 2019.

Move from the word to the typographic installation and explore the exhibiting venue with the aim of intensifying its meaning. It occurs in the combination of Design as communication and Installation as a piece. Calls for critical intervention through the invocations of the large-scale graphic and typographic elements. Expansion of a need to communicate with graphic dimension and visual intensity. Thanks to Arquente people, Catarina Dias, Carlos Rodrigues and Vanessa Martins.

"Oversized Poster Painted on a Wall", it's a long-time willingness of Bruno Rodrigues and Rita Matos to explore the common ground on their work as graphic designers & visual artists, creating something new in the form of a collaboration. A consequence of the solo exhibition of one half of the team — "What We Feel Like", by Rita Matos — this piece made the wall of FOCO, a contemporary art gallery in Lisbon, from 30th November to 22nd December 2017.

First Things First is a 20 limited silkscreen and spray poster series (70x100cm), signed and numbered printed at Lavandaria. This piece was created as a tribute to the well-known Manifesto with the same name, written by Ken Garland in 1964 and signed by 20 international creatives, from designers to photographers and students.
It was a reaction to the return of humanism in Design, a response to over-effort in advertising that resulted in the appeal to the consumer spirit. The objective would be the application of this effort in the Design for the education and public service thus serving the society in a worthy purpose.

Visual Approach is a series of 6 silkscreen posters limited to 25 units each. This series addresses different messages transcribed through visual compositions that communicate the author's feelings, paradigms and ideas. All the visual content, work and live in the space defined for its creation, valuing the poster in its dimension, as a support of the content. The constant provocation and rousing speech, which occurs in the written and/or visual message, is a way of testing the observer, creating a sense of curiosity for objective understanding.
Some prints can be found at WhiteGrid Gallery in Berlin.
