  • Syllabus


    Books, periodic publications, posters and advertising artifacts support images that contribute to the interpretation of texts and concepts, which can both operate as autonomous visual signs in the construction of identities, as well as articulated with verbal elements. Thus, it is intended to understand and explore the various functions of illustration in the context of contemporary communication, making a conceptual and practical approach motivated by the exploration of themes that allow to approach the articulation between narrative elements and their positioning in the supports; the rhetoric of the image and the expression; and the creation of characters. According to this framework will be summoned examples from editorial projects for different audiences and narratives belonging to the historical body of the illustration. It is also intended to promote experimentation with drawing tools and techniques.
