Leite has developed a research project with interactive design company Kaue Costa called Sottsays! It is a software generator that spits out random compositions based around various forms, and each format is created as a whole so that it embodies an entirely new meaning. The result is an often astonishing mish-mash that a straightforward design brain could probably never have come up with.
Huge, bright typefaces are a stylistic signature for the Portuguese-born, Amsterdam-based graphic-design and art director Ricardo Leite. He specialises in visual concepts for static and moving images, graphic identities, editorial design and creative research within the cultural and corporate fields. He is also co-founder of the Best Portuguese Book Designs project and head of the Wild Research Club.
