ON THE RECORD

– EDITORIAL DESIGN, GRADUATION PROJECT

EDITORIAL DESIGN + INFORMATION DESIGN + GRAPHIC EXPERIMENTS
 
I’ve always believed that the media has the power to change things. Being naive or not, I’ve always had the feeling that the free press is synonymous of truth.
 
The invention of the mechanical printing press brought a time of light in 1500s and 1600s, and since then the printed newspaper has not changed drastically in the way it was consumed.
 
Time passed, and with it habits changed. Content is still important for the news spread, but “the how” has begun to gain more and more prominence.
 
From the color insertion in journalism to the transition from print to digital, informational aesthetics gained strength and came to bring the importance of design to the news production.
 
100 years ago, a group of people have been recording all these changes. The Pulitzer Prizes has always played a proactive role in characterizing journalism as a vehicle for reliable information.
 
Since 1917, the award encourages journalists and news organizations to strive to do their best by providing a point of reference and inspiration for exceptional work.
 

On The Record: 100 years of journalistic memories in graphic experiments” is a collection of 50 articles — selected from more than 3,000 nominations — that have been graphically explored to be an alternative representation and to attract a diverse audience about the importance of Pulitzer Prizes for the contemporary journalism’s history.

The editorial identity brings the printing plates colors from old and current newspapers. The typographical, photographic and visual identity is worked out according to the time of each story. By flipping through the book it is possible to take a trip back in time and understand how editorial design evolved between 1917 and 2017.

 
The goal was to bring attention to journalists, designers and the general public about the relevance of the prizes, editorial design and journalism in a context of information crisis and legitimacy.
