Brazilian graphic designer Gustavo Piqueira shared his insight on the intersection of visual narratives, culture and language with Moore College of Art & Design junior level Graphic Design students in a workshop and virtual lunchtime lecture March 19.

The lecture was presented in association with the Graphic Design Visiting Artist Workshop at Moore. Scroll down to watch the lecture.

"The Visiting Artist Workshop in Graphic Design is an annual tradition that exposes students to noteworthy designers in the field," said Graphic Design Professor Gigi McGee. "It broadens their perspective, grows their network, and gives them an opportunity to work with experts in the field. The three-day charette is as exciting as it is productive. The accompanying lecture also allows the full department access to the artists who are often design luminaries."

As the head of Casa Rex, Gustavo Piqueira has received over 500 international graphic design awards. His wide field of work is a reflection of the way he views design: as a dialogue. Therefore, the more dialogue there is, the richer the professional experience becomes. As a result of this approach, we witness not only his transition across all areas of graphic design, but also his ability to remove the typical boundaries and confines usually inherent within the profession, expanding his creativity with illustrations; objects; typography; and culminating in his 40 published books, all signified by a blend of design, history, art and literature.
