Graphic project is the international graphics magazine published by Aiap, the Italian association of visual communication design. The magazine, founded in 2003, is today directed by Jonathan Pierini and Gianluca Camillini.
The new «Graphic Design» offers a critical look at graphic and visual culture, through a narrative by fragments. It proposes associations between articles based on links of different nature that enhance transdisciplinary, historical and contemporary considerations. A multiple gaze, which ranges from the very far to the very close, through a re-proposition of the real that seeks to capture now wide-ranging aspects, now specialized questions. The belief is that the observation of visual manifestations, whether they are artifacts or representations of things, as well as the graphic-visual production, can make a necessary contribution to today's cultural debate.
The types of interventions are also heterogeneous, including visual materials, essays and interviews. Each issue is a narrative excursus that explores the magazine's storytelling possibilities.
