The Life & Death Illustrated is French Illustrator Romain Ferrer’s last piece of work. This new poster plays on the understanding of idiomatic expressions and the representation of a concept translated into a graphical system. ‘The misuse of words and lexical fields, throughout literature, always brings to life amusing graphical analogies. Behind all strong concepts such as Life, Death, Sex and many others […] you will always find references that link them all together: it gets very confusing. Take the color red for instance: it is the color of blood(flow) for ‘Life’, the color of blood(stain) for ‘Death’, and the color of heat and passion for ‘Sex’. Just work by association, it works all the time.’

Caruaru is a line of furniture inspired on the improvise of Caruaru fair, one of the biggest open fairs of the world, a Brazilian cultural asset, over 200 years in the Agreste of Pernambuco.
The furniture design brings the constructive fundaments and shapes of the furniture exposed at the fair. The main material is the cultivated PINUS wood, natural. When they are colored, the furniture gets the yellow tons of the Agreste Sun, blue tons of the Agreste, guará gray, mandacarú green, carcará black or orange chestnut. The collection is composed by tables, easy chairs, benches, chairs, rack, bookcases, buffet, shelves and also hanger and floor luminary, with a total of 19 items. Some parts were made with recycled pet bottle lines.
The furniture can also be printed with the exclusive xilogravuras of J. Borges, one of the most popular artists of Brazil, master of cordel literature illustration, also responsible for the creation of the Caruaru Logo. Choices made respecting the natural beauty of the Brazilian Northeast.
