This project was made with the colaboration of Angela Santos and Mariana Santos.The goal was to make a book about the story of the theatre and also incorporate their en-tire plays. The book was written in two languages, portuguese and english, so that Guimares visitors could find it attractive to purschase.The book was separeted in two parts. The fisrt one in white pa-per pages, where we displayed the teathre history and foto-graphs, and a second part, in blue paper pages for the written plays.The book came out with very different and appealing spreads, leaving the reader surprised and wanting to turn another and an-other page.</p><p>Teatro Oficina</p></li><li><p> [editorial] 9Laura Moreira</p></li><li><p>10 [editorial] Laura Moreira</p><p>Silkscreen printed fanzine.

This book represents a compilation of Joaninas Library macro and landscape photo-graphs.Because it was such an heavy book to handle and it had so many big pictures, i tryed to lighten up the cover, making it as clean as possible, using a sim-ple painting detail as the only image element in the cover.</p><p>A livraria da UniversidadeBiblioteca Joanana</p><p> [editorial] 11Laura Moreira</p></li><li><p>I L L U S T R A T I O N</p><p>The story of a dog named BrownMaxmen: the new beautiful</p><p>Animal RightsNo Carvalhal do Gers</p><p>Vista Alegre: moliceirosDo: unique objects</p><p>LilMonstersAnimal Love</p><p>Bertrand Booksellers Mascot</p></li><li><p> [illustration] 13Laura Moreira</p><p>This is the story of a dog named Brown. Under the proj-ect of Contexts and Practices of illustration we were asked to create a fiction story based in real life moments. The story I told was the story of my dog , named Brown, a mutt who was born alone, without brothers or sisters, that was raised by the other dog living in the farm: Lucky - a noble Cocker dog.Brown learns with him all the farm secrets. But unfor-tunately Lucky dies of old age and Brown stands alone once again, with no reason to stay. When the decision of departing comes, a new member arrives: a new puppy, named Mika, another Cocker dog. Brown immediately falls in love.But the love felt for the new puppy is unrequited and she sees him as just a friend. Mika ultimately creates family with another dog of the same breed and Brown, shat-tered and betrayed, is forced to leave the farm forever. Brown was never seen again, never stepped on the farms soil again.</p><p>The story of a dog named Brown</p><p>Material: pen and pencilDrawn by sight with photograhs as basis.</p></li><li><p>14 [illustration] Laura Moreira</p></li><li><p> [illustration] 15Laura Moreira</p><p>Project done under the subject of Contexts and Practices of Illustration. The aim of this project was to make a tribute to someone in a publication. So, as inspiration, i hold on to John Paul Thurlow, an illustrator with a realistic style known to tam-per with a large number of magazine covers kno-wn world wide like Vogue, Decoy, The New Yorker, etc.</p><p>I recreated a portuguese magazine, Maxmen, whi-le reversed the stereotype of woman usualy seen in this kind of mens magazine. I made 6 magazine spreads by copying the layout used in one of its editions and also modified the linguistic content. Here I show some of the illustrations created for this work, which also included pages for adverti-sing and back cover.</p><p>Maxmen: the new beautiful</p><p>Material: pen and pencil</p></li><li><p>16 [illustration] Laura Moreira</p><p>Illustrated childrens book done for the final project of the first year of masters degree.To alert the society of todays world about the animal life ri-ghts, I built an illustrated col-lection of the animal rights. This collection consisted in two books: a book designed specifi-cally for a childs universe, and one for an adult audience. With this division of the illustrations I intended to get more assertive public.Illustrating and designing both books had to be careful to drive a kind of illustration more color-ful and fun for children and, in the case of the book for adults, Ive chosen two color illustra-tions, more shocking, more dra-matic, to alert the adult popula-tion to the consequences of not following the animal rights.</p><p>Animal Rights</p><p>Material: black marker + PhotoshopDigital print + Munken Creme paper 130gr</p></li><li><p> [ilustration] 17Laura Moreira</p></li><li><p>18 [illustration] Laura Moreira</p><p>Illustrated book for children pro-duced as a final project of MA in partnership with the National Park of Peneda Geres.The aim of this project was, abo-ve all, demonstrate how editorial design can enhance the illustrated stories.The narrative covers a topic of environmental impact - the fire, trying to make children aware of environmental issues related to animals and their habitat, based on the Peneda-Geres National Park.The final project involves the pre-sentation of two design proposals: a notebook and an harmonium book. Both proposals apply con-cepts of the unconventional illus-trated books, with two solutions for the graphic production. The first book enhances the use of di-fferent support materials and cut-ting, highlighting the destructive power of fire.In the harmonium book is the vi-sual linearity that highlights the contrast between two different spaces of the narrative, before and during the fire, allowing its rea-ding on both sides.</p><p>No Carvalhal do Gers</p><p>Material: color pencil + graphite + PhotoshopOffset print in Munken Pure paper 130gr</p></li><li><p> [illustration] 19Laura Moreira</p></li><li><p>20 [illustration] Laura Moreira</p><p>Illustrations made for the children book Mimo and the carrot cake that takes part in the book collection of Joana Poas, As delcias do Mimo.
