Created for the cultural center maintained by Santander Bank in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The challenge of this trilingual book project was to record the main events of the past 15 years, giving voice to artists who have had their careers driven by the institution and anonymous characters who experience the everyday life of the cultural center. The visual aspects and the materiality of the book are innovative and elegant. Grid and typography were defined in order to organize different ways of accessing the text. The images bring attention to the material beauty of the building and the records of people in action in the space. The graphic print production stands out the silver ink that brings sober and sophisticated atmosphere to the pages.
