Forging the Character

Tuesday 27 October, 12:00 (20 minutes)

Mr Leonardo Vazquez, , Macizotype

A broad view of the Mexican typographic (and graphic) history. Starting from the first appearance of writing in the Western Hemisphere to the first Press in the Americas, up through the viceroyal era and Independence periods, the years of the great Mexican printers, then going through the decades after the Revolution where the seed of modern Mexican graphic design was planted. The voyage stops in the 70’s decade at the end of the Olympic games, and when the –industrial design- career was opened to the public.
