key points on my projectual process
Enfhasis of the concept/thought, of originality as a "weapon" against the conventional and the "cliché".
Exploration and utilization of the drawing as a tool of synthesis and simplification of information.
Defense of the formal and conceptual coherence as one of the fundamental principles of coporative branding.
Racionalism vs "unjustified effects" (just to produce a "cool image")
Form equals to function.
Less is more.
