In Rodrigo Saiani’s survey of identity design, brand cultivation, and type design, he reveals not only that the fields are increasingly linked but also that they’re evolving towards a variable future.

His work has won awards from Type Director’s Club, Tipos Latinos, Brand New Awards, ADG Brazil - Brazilian Design Biennial Best of Show (Guanabara Sans, Primot, Tenez).
