Lorenzo Homar, Puerto Rican graphic designer
While in Puerto Rico, I went to see the Pablo Casals museum which is in a tiny building on the edge of Old San Juan. It’s easy to walk through in a few minutes and only costs $1 to get in! It has a number of interesting artifacts related to the famous cellist including some beautiful photographs and several concert posters. It turns out, the posters are all designed by a famous Puerto Rican graphic designer, Lorenzo Homar. His typography, color, and bold graphics are really vibrant and are all really appropriate for the music they represent. These are the posters in the museum, the top one is a beautiful silk screen and the bottom two are HAND PAINTED. That’s right, even the type.
You can see a lot more of Homar’s excellent design work here.
