More About This Book

From Mexico to Patagonia, Latin America is bursting with creativity. As economies in this region have prospered over the last few years, the demand for work by local creative talent has grown with them. In this context, an aspiring generation of Latin American designers and artists has been evolving and refining its own visual language. latino-gráfico presents a colorful selection of graphic design, illustration, and typography that examines the fresh look of today’s Latin American design.

Whether critical or glorifying, all of the work collected in this book reflects truly mixed societies. From African folk art to Christian symbolism and imported North American lifestyle, latino-gráfico examines the diverse influences that shape this often chaotic design culture and make it one of the most dynamic in the world today. The included DVD with moving images and a foreword by longtime MTV creative director and native Chilean Christian Jofre make it a comprehensive compendium of this region’s design.

latino-gráfico was compiled by TwoPoints.Net founder Martin Lorenz, formerly of Hort, and Lupi Asensio. Since 2007 the husband and wife designers have lived in Barcelona, where they document design developments in the Latin American cultural sphere.
