research & editorial
Research on the relationship between the graphic designer and paper material, establishing a study of the main interactive properties of the material to renew the sensations generated by the creation, use, and reception of printed objects, through a return to artisanal production and printing practices.
Today, new technologies are widely ingrained, accessible, and constantly evolving, creating a digital comfort zone.
