AT Arquitectes de Tarragona is a magazine specialized in architecture and urbanism that wants to transmit that there are other sensibilities and ways of doing things, encouraging the new generations and sensitizing the established ones in order to achieve a higher degree of quality in daily architecture. It spreads the architecture, both historical and newly built, more relevant in the area of the province of Tarragona.

It is published by the Col·legi d'Arquitectes de Catalunya, demarcació de Tarragona (College of Architects of Catalonia, Tarragona, Spain). And each issue is open to be created and designed by any author after presenting a proposal and winning a pitch. In this occasion, the AT#22 was conceived by Ferran Grau Valldosera and Nuria Casais Pérez from Grau Casais who asked me to design it.

As you can read in the editorial note: 

«This issue of the magazine AT is dedicated to the link between nature and the city, recognizing the relevance of the debate on urban development in the natural environment and vice versa. On this occasion, AT collects projects located in the Demarcation of the COAC in Tarragona and others that, due to their territorial affinity and scale, provide a debate that goes beyond the local condition and covers global issues. These projects address the definition of the boundary between the natural and the artificial and, in some cases, they transfer the conditions of a natural environment to an urban context, all of which pay special attention to the capacity of a project to transform, improve, conserve and develop the potential of a territory. the scenario that precedes the project (the “current state”) and that of the work once constructed (the “final state”), thus showing the transformation derived from the attentive and careful recognition of reality. n the operational capacity of approaches that want to go, without fear and with commitment, beyond automatically pre-set project responses.»

The design

The design responds to the content: very long texts, some photos and technical drawings. The issue size is A3, A2 (opened). Along the 16 pages  I used two different grids, 3 and 4 columns. the typefaces are Eurostile and Atlas Grotesk.

Across Borders is a collaborative poster design project initiated by Mayúscula, whose goal is to contribute to a social cause by buying them. Each poster is the result of the collaborative work between two designers, and I was invited to create one in collaboration with Lynne Yun

The project connected 50 recognized designers, illustrators, calligraphers or typographers from 30 different countries, resulting in a collection of 30 posters that were exhibited from November 17 to 29 at the Disseny Hub Barcelona, as part of the Barcelona Design Week. The resulting posters from this collaborative work can be purchased online on the Across Borders website until December 20 with the aim of raising funds for the acquisition of Dignity Kits for Syrian refugee women in Lebanon through the NGO Rescate.

The design

The starting point was to “divide” the canvas in two halves, and make the words play together by touching each other, as a visual metaphor of erasing the borders (Fronteras in Spanish). We started with “GREETINGS” written by Lynne, and based on it I draw the letters to compose “FRONTERAS”. First, I worked on a sort of contemporary gothic letters, but combined with the calligraphy seem to lack contrast, consequently, it evolved in a stronger lettering style, more compact, that also gives better legibility to the full word when together.

Size: 50 cm x 70 cm
Paper: Fedrigoni Arena EW 250gsm
Printed on HP Indigo with Pantone + Fluor Pink
