rodrigo mends: a colour poetry

brazilian art director rodrigo mendes has developed ‘a colour poetry’, which is a collection of posters that uses abobe’s kuler website as a source for themes by initiating collaboration. recognizing the talent and user’s ability to communicate feelings and sensations, mendes began creating graphics from the library of contributors. he realized that he could transform the concept into a platform by inviting others to participate on the project instead of creating his own designs. the result is a series of graphics signed by the designer of the subject.
