Progetto grafico is an international graphic design journal founded in 2003 and published by Aiap, the Italian association of visual communication design. A point of reference for such design in Italy from its start, it has also been fully translated into English since 2012.
In 2017 Jonathan Pierini and Gianluca Camillini became the current editors. The new Progetto grafico offers a critical look at graphics and visuals through a narrative broken up into fragments. Its aim is to offer articles connected in different ways so as to foster a series of transdisciplinary, historical and contemporary considerations. This multiple viewpoint, ranging from very distant to very close, seeks to look at the real both in the broadest terms as well as in a more specialist context. Our belief is that observation, whether of artifacts or representations, as well as production of visuals or graphics can add to today’s cultural debate.
Contributions can include visual material, essays and interviews. Each issue intends to explore the storytelling opportunities of the journal.
AREA FOR ANALISYS
Each year Progetto grafico publishes an international call for papers to outline the scope of the topic for the next two issues, and to gather submissions. To be published in 2019, issues 35 and 36 will investigate the sacred and the profane. As in previous editions, Progetto grafico will aim to take a look at differences and similarities from a standpoint of design that ranges from very close to far away, in a constant analysis of possible connections and different point of view on the designer’s work.
