Book Description

9 Oct 2003
In Brasil, a country of brash, colourful contradictions, first and third world make easy bedfellows.
Soaring past most nations’ ideas of cultural diversity, Brasil boasts jungle and concrete, football and corruption, carnival and Copacabana beauties. Well charted by maps and guide books, the creative impact of the world’s ninth biggest economy has nevertheless been largely neglected.
Here Brasil takes centre stage: inspired by its irrepressible zest for life, a number of internationally-acclaimed designers and local talents have translated their very own vision of this bustling and untameable nation into a stream of entirely original, exclusive works.
The first collection to provide a visible and tangible overview of the diversity, distinction and vigour of Brazilian visual culture, this juxtaposition of in- and outside views, each with their very own style and attitude, makes for a clever mix of tension and consensus, creating a highly complex and dynamic compilation that gives as much room to photography and street art as to more traditional graphic design ventures.
Smart and often decidedly naughty, Brasil shows Catholicism caught in a web of fruitful corruption, urban warriors going native in the concrete jungle or inspired plays on the Chiquita cliché – all suffused by that ever-present, rich tropical green, casting its shadow over an urban sprawl.
In this mid-price volume, Brasilian native Nando Costa (hungryfordesign.com) and Miguel Vasquez (Masa, see also Latino) have compiled the work of Associates in Science, Buro Destruct, Cisma, François Chalet,
Hi-Res, Jeremy Hollister, Rinzen, MK 12, State Design, Trollback & Co, Weworkforthem, Yugo Nakamura, etc to provide a saturated celebration of a truly fascinating country.
