Production update 2


Hello everybody!

We’ve been crazy busy the past 9 months, planning, traveling and filming all over the Portugal, meeting some amazing people, and collecting nice footage. We’ve been also colleting the necessary material, like book, magazines, type specimens, newspapers, etc., so we can illustrate the designer’s contribution!
We’re now reviewing these footages in order to go to the hard, but nice, step: the editing!

Cheers!
