Visual Identity

Igor Arume (b. BR, 1991) is a designer1, visual artist and collector2 based in Rio de Janeiro working at the multiple intersections between graphic design, publishing3 and printmaking4.



  1. His design practice focuses primarily on typography, editorial design and identity. All with an attention to detail, his work strives for visual boldness while challenging aesthetic ideals.

  2. He collects Risograph printed visual culture since 2012 at Riso Ephemera︎︎.

  3. He investigates critical issues within the fields of design and media in self-initiated projects. His research interests range from design education and designer as author to media archeology.

  4. He is interested in exploring the aesthetic qualities, ideological potential and technical limits of stencil duplicators like the Risograph as a means of production for self-publishing and artists’ books, while pushing the boundaries of the printed medium.
