Pli, Arte + Design Nº4 “Hot & Cool” was published in 2013. It is a publication of ESAD, School of Arts and Design of Matosinhos. José Bártolo and Sérgio Afonso were the editors of this issue. Inês Neponuceno was the art director.
This issue is dedicated to the theme “Hot & Cool”. This theme evokes the warm state associated with the conflicts and antagonisms we live in, and the cold state associated with reaction phenomena, such as critique and pragmatic that in general characterize the contemporary society we live right now, focusing on arts and design.
The project includes three different typefaces, such as Paperback (House Industries) for text and Solido (DSType) for text and headlines. For the major headlines, it uses Artigo Display by Nova Type Foundry, at the time not released yet and only used for this purpose.
