Chapter 57: The Portugese School of Graphic Design


Table of Contents:


Introduction


The Portuguese school of graphic design has been at the forefront of the international book cover design since the early 20th century. The Portuguese design, has developed a unique identity, it is a design that is self-taught, versatile and almost always operated in one way or another in a challenging socio-political environment.The enormously self-confident Portuguese design professionals such as Victor Palla, João da Câmara Leme, Otelo Azinhais, Sebastião Rodrigues, Figueiredo Sobral, Manuel Baptista, Luis Filipe, Júlio Pomar, Paulo Guilherme, as well as many others created a unique vocabulary of symbols and innovative compositions that defined the Portuguese school. Such achievement is truly remarkable for a country that its formal introduction to graphic design started relatively late. In fact, the first design courses in Portugal was offered in 1969, and design as an academic discipline was introduced in Portuguese universities in Lisbon and Porto in 1975. IADE - which opened in 1969 under the name Institute of Art and Decoration, and is now the largest private school of design in the country - , which will complement the schools of arts and crafts existed since the beginning of the century


In Portugal the design of book cover has been always treated as one of the most intriguing areas of visual communication. The book cover designer needs to think about the complexity of an art object that belongs to the universe of ideas which should be represented by a visual composition in association with a concrete object which would be mass produced in a commercial world. As João Bicker, of Ferrand, Bicker Associados explains: "We worked on the ideas expressed by others and try to interpret them visually. What is essential is the search for understanding of the text, the way that gives the best read. A suitable choice of typography, the shape of the book and page, the process of putting words and images in the form that best serve. " "there is nothing more important than the choice of typography, the letters that will read the text. Each font carries in its design characteristics that influence both formal and historical reading because they influence the shape of the text."

Contemporary Portuguese design is largely “international” in style, world class in caliber and sophisticated in its execution, regardless of medium—as such, it’s notable for its plurality, agility and openness to outside influences. Design instructor Luísa Ribas suggests that Portuguese design is particularly known for “articulating strong conceptual approaches with a sensibility to formal rigor, notable in the effective use of typography.” The Portuguese heightened visual sensitivity is represented by knowledge, skill, planning and vision. From a technical perspective a typical Portuguese designer shows sensitivity that his design would be printed on a particular type of paper of various weights, with choices of different printing processes, binding techniques, and a mixture typography, illustration and color. Within such criteria, the graphic artist always try to understand the main idea of a book and convey it in an honest and efficient way to the reader. It is argued that "in Portugal it seems that necessity truly is the mother of invention. Forced to work with limited means and resources, it seems that Portuguese designers have become frugality experts by “doing a lot with a little,” being exceptionally creative and “doing it all, on call.”


Victor Palla






Born in Lisbon, Victor Manuel Palla e Carmo (1922-2006), architect, photographer, painter, ceramic artist, graphic designer, publisher, translator, gallery owner, and a man of many ideas; was the son of a theater make-up artist and amateur photographer, At age seventeen he began his studies in architecture and was graduated in Porto, in 1948. While in Porto, he ran the Galeria Portugália. After his return to Lisbon, in 1947, he participated in many Art Exhibitions until 1955, showing drawings, paintings, decorative art work, sculpture and photography.

Palla published theoretical articles in magazines such as "Arquitectura", which he directed in 1952, and designed innovative architectural projects in partnership with Joaquim Bento d' Almeida, an architect with whom he shared a studio for 25 years. Graphic design and editing were other areas in which Victor Palla had distinguished himself early in his life. In 1949,  Palla created the famous collection of Os Livros das Três Abelhas-- the Three Bees books with José Cardoso Pires, and in 1952, he attended a Publishing and Book Production Course in London, applying some of his new skills to the Three Bees books and the Folio editions. In 1992, the Modern Art Centre of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, in Lisbon, dedicated a retrospective photography exhibition on the artist and, in 1999, the Portuguese Photography Centre, in Porto, awarded him the National Photography Prize.

Sebastião Rodrigues







Born and raised in Dafundo, Sebastião Rodrigues (1929 - 1997) worked in Lisbon. Eearly in his life, Rodrigues learned the craft from his father, for whom he was doing various graphic errands in the advertising department of newspaper A Voz. At the tender age of sixteen, while working for Atelier de Publicidade Artística (APA), the Advertising Arts Workshop, he met Manuel Rodrigues, his future business partner, who accompanied him for 30 years. Rodrigues worked with virtually all the Portuguese pioneers of graphic design sharing experiences and knowledge.

In 1959, while he was in charge of the graphic design of monthly Almanac, Rodrigues traveled to the northern Portugal for half a year, with a grant from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, to research various aspects of the traditional Portuguese graphic design, which deeply influenced his style, grounding it firmly in the country's folkloric design. Being a perfectionist, Sebastião Rodrigues engaged himself thoroughly and with the utmost rigor in the entire process of design from the initial conceptualization to final execution, combining capabilities of offset printing with the traditional inspiration. He integrated harmoniously the typography the cover in the composition of the image.

During his one year tenure at Almanac, under its editors José Cardoso Pires and Figueiredo Magalhães, Rodrigues worked with many contemporary artists, such as Abel Manta. After leaving Almanac, he was commissioned by publishers Sá da Costa and Arcádia, first project in 1961, and Editorial Verbo, first project in 1979. Rodrigues designed numerous posters, leaflets, books, catalogs, and other graphic materials. He was graphic designer for the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation since the 1960's. In 1954, he was commissioned to design Portuguese pavilions in Sao Paulo and continue to design Portuguese Pavilion 1956 (Rome), 1957 (Lausanne) and 1958 (Brussels).

Rodrigues received numerous awards and honors throughout his life, including the "Award of Excellence" by ICOGRADA (International Council of Graphic Design Associations) in 1991 and the Medal of "Grand Officer" of the Order of Merit, awarded by the President of the Republic in 1995.

As WW2 ended Pomar became influenced by the Communist party and writers such as Redol and Alves. He joined a politico-student group called the Independentes. He perceived his art to be a socio-politico vehicle for intervention. His first group exhibition in 1945 at the Anteneu Comercial do Porto was an exhibition of anti-regime art, refusing cooperation with the Salazar regime. His oppositional stance restricted his access to the School of Fine Art and on his return to Lisbon he was imprisoned for four months. In 1950 Pomar moved to Spain and studied the work of Goya which greatly influence his painting in this period. In the following years he paints portraits of prominent political and social intellectuals including Maria Lamas and Mário Dionísio.In the 1960’s Pomar participated in the French student riots and painted a series of works on insurgency.
