Roberto Nobre is likely to go down in the annals of Portuguese illustration and graphic design as one of the genre's great he roes, and has a unique place due to his myriad facets: an important cinephile and film critic, a man of letters, politically active, a graphic designer and a talented illustrator who, over 4 decades, was able to assimilate styles that take us from the Vienna Secession to social realism via the brilliance of Art Deco.
D is a collection devoted to Portuguese designers from various different generations. Artists in several disciplines, from communication to objects, fashion to graphic arts, and from advertising to illustration.
