JosĂŠ Marconi Bezerra de Souza Besides background in industrial and footwear design, my main expertise is on instructional illustrations, but I am also able to create expressive or artistic images (mixed media). My objective for the next years is to join my craft skills as illustrator (handrawn mainly) with my scientific knowledge on how to design effective graphic and cinematographic instructions. Fifteen years experience as university lecturer including a short experience as teacher assistant at the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication (The University of Reading, UK). I have made presentations about the graphic representation of dynamic events in USA (Philadelphia and Atlanta) and UK (Wrexham, Cambridge, Greenwich and Reading), where my audience included technical communicators, information designers and illustrators.

Poster Design Results of Piotr Kunce Poster Design Workshop in Brazil These posters were developed prior to and during Piotr Kunce’s Poster Design Workshop in Curitiba (August 2011). The “International Cuisine” poster was develped on my own and it was considered my “acceptance letter” for Kunce´s Workshop. During the “Magician Convention Poster” design process Piotr Kunce was a superb teacher, who helped me to explore new creative routes and learn more deeply about how to use illustration in posters. Both posters were highly praised by the Polish Design Master. For More information about Piotr Kunce´s work click here.
Urban and musical sketches Sketches developed in Curitiba and S達o Paulo during 2011.
Pictorial cards for alternative communication These illustrations were developed for the project â€œCommunisâ€? sponsored by SENAI (Brazilian organisation that deals with industrial training). Communis is a graphic system formed by printed cards with images and text. It is targeted to industrial managers who has to deal with employees that have speech difficulties (e.g. brain damages, intellectual deficiency, autism). In graphic terms, there is an obvious influence from Otto Neurath and Gerd Arntz work for the Isotype. However, later on these drawings had to be changed in order to fit to the in-house designerâ€™s style.
