Progetto grafico: Aiap's international magazine relaunched
Progetto grafico is an international graphic design magazine published by Aiap (Italian Association for Visual Communication Design).
The magazine was founded in 2003 and directed by Alberto Lecaldano until 2011. In 2012, Riccardo Falcinelli and Silvia Sfligiotti became the magazine’s editors. A reference point for the culture of visual communication design in Italy since its beginning, Progetto grafico has now undergone a renovation, including a new editorial style, new layout and full English translation. Progetto grafico aims to become a critical forum on graphic design; for that reason, a monographic approach was chosen, which makes it possible to analyse a number of topics in depth, including contributions from inside and outside the industry. Aside from the main section, there will be an “off-topic” section for articles on different themes. Progetto grafico does not aim to present news stories, but is an attempt to look at ongoing developments from the right distance.
The magazine will be issued every six months, once in spring and once in autumn. The first issue of the new series, PG21: Why Write About Graphic Design?, was published in July 2012. PG22: Common space, is fresh off the press; both are available for purchase through the Aiap website.
