Voca Revista de Arte
#1: Tornados Públicos
“Voca - Art Magazine” started as a personal proposal for the final project of the degree in Communication Design at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Porto. Edited and designed independently with Isabel Duarte, visual artists were invited to reflect and write about their practice in response to a general theme. Authors participating in this issue included Gabriela Vaz Pinheiro, Isabel Carvalho, Né Barros, Carla Cruz, Susana Lourenço Marques and Miguel Carvalhais, among others. The specific thematic orientation of each of the two numbers published, was also expressed in terms of the artistic and graphic direction of the publications. In the case of the first issue, entitled “Made Public”, photographs of a wide variety of chairs populated the pages, taking the place of illustrations, separators and dropcaps.
#2: Efe de Ficção
“Voca - Art Magazine”, edited and designed with Isabel Duarte, published texts of visual artists, who were invited to reflect about their practice in response to a general theme proposed. Authors participating in this issue included Renato Ferrão, André Cepeda, Nuno Ramalho, André Sousa, Marta Bernardes, Miguel Carneiro and Mario Moura, among others. The specific thematic orientation of each of the two numbers that came to life, was also expressed in terms of the artistic and graphic direction of the objects. Printed in two colors, this second issue, sought to address the theme of “Fiction”. Color blocks and typographic tabs were given particularly attention.
