• Guimarães Jazz 2010 Journal

    We were challenged once again to do a journal about Jazz,
    in which there were three different information categories:
    the main text - an historic/speculative one; the artist's
    biographies and concert dates; additional events. Like last
    year's edition, we were asked to make the main text be
    accompanied by the artist's biographies, so, as a solution,
    we've decided to take the idea of overlapping the texts as
    the main concept of the journal. The overlapping works
    as a way of interfering and/or covering each other (in this
    case the pages) like what happens in Jazz music. We have
    different "layers" of information that interact with each
    other by this process of covering/uncovering. The different
    page formats appeal to the idea of different personalities
    that are in interaction with each other on one common
    ground, like an orchestra, resulting in one editorial object,
    in this case,
    the Jazz Journal.
