The team of graphic designers Lo Siento, comprising Borja Martínez and Gerard Miró, is taking part in the series of exhibitions 'La Cova. About Technique', with the show 'Disseny a foc lent' (Design on a simmering heat), in which they consider their own particular vision of technique. The show can be visited at the Girona branch office from 4 December 2015 to 14 February 2016.
Graphic design is, traditionally, a visual communication tool. We are accustomed to perceiving graphic information using our sense of sight. Returning to traditional techniques prior to the digital age, using the third dimension and a physical approach to graphic solutions, has enabled us to perceive graphic design using other senses, redefining the relationship between graphic design and the material. Graphics that you can see, touch, drink or eat.
The exhibition series 'La Cova. About Technique', managed by the Girona branch's Department of Culture since October 2014, aims to reveal alternative ways of imagining, planning, composing, assembling, mixing, constructing, executing and post-producing a project.
