Simão, the Cat

~ concept + text + illustration + design + typesetting ~

 

A Risograph printed personal project designed at a workshop put together by Triciclo at FICA - Oficina Criativa. The purpose was to create an album with a theme of my choice, which could be Risograph printed exploring its material characteristics.

I wanted to pay homage to my cat Simão who is no longer with us and made a little book for my daughter Carlota who was yet to come, so she could "get to know him". As a base I used photographs taken over the years and illustrated small details that complemented the photos. The story reflects the whole personality of Simão.
