This Saturday we met José Saccone, Daniel Mochi and Nicolás Sarsotti from Toki, their collective which was created during 2001 with the aim of drawing without precise purpose, but focusing on the satisfaction and passion of its members.
It is not possible to talk about a certain Toki style as the group uses various technics in craft work and digital art. All the three of them work as Graphic Designers teaching Typography at the UBA.
The »Postales Toki« are a selection of a wide range of illustrations that reflect the group´s soul with its different ideas, technics and expressions.
»Toki y sus amigos« is a collection of illustrations made by the Toki members and some friends without using any digital help.
We are Sara-Lena Göbel and
Daniel Bolay, two students of Communication Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Within the works for our diploma we are preparing a Design Report about exceptional Design and Designers from Buenos Aires.
Important elements of our work will be interviews with different Designers and the presentation of their projects.
Our aim is to give a multifarious insight into the Argentinian visual language and its Communication Design. It shall provide a basis for an interchange of inspiration between Designers worldwide, deliver what Design from Argentinia is able to carry out and evoke interest for it.
as we are young designers we do have a lot of questions. in order to find answers to them we travel to buenos aires in argentina, the melting pot of latin american graphic design. the »city of design« (unesco title), impresses with its contrasts, and colorful diversity.
