He was a truck driver and boxer, he taught himself architecture as he didn't like school and preferred to study his way, visiting and analyzing the works. Tadao Ando has consolidated his name by performing an architecture that's pure, allowing the user to experience space and nature in his works.
Tadao Ando (安藤 忠雄 Andō Tadao) was born in Osaka, Japan, on September 13, 1941 and was raised by his grandmother. At 10 to 17 years of age, he worked with a local carpenter where he learned to work with wood, building model airplanes and ships.
School-wise, Tadao chose his own method of learning, outside the classroom through visits to buildings in the region and always with a lot of reading about architecture. He studied architecture at his own pace and also visited other customs, cultures and buildings in Europe and North America.
“I was never a good student. I always preferred learning things on my own outside of class. When I was about 18, I started to visit temples, shrines and tea houses in Kyoto and nara; There's a lot of great traditional architecture in the area. I was studying architecture by going to see actual building, and reading books about them.”Architecture, Branding2014
The musician Mário de Andrade, — the name behind the band Feeling Jazz — has always been in partnership with other musicians in various events. It was in 2013 when he decided to search for a branding identity for the name of his own band, looking to break into the music scene.
In the creation of the brand symbol, the concept was to create a monogram resembling musical notes, which was simply constructed by performing some minor type changes, making it more characteristic without losing its elegance and preserving parts of its original appearance.
As for the logo, I wanted to escape using the obvious and traditional serif fonts.
Following the proposal of jazz music that developed with a mixture of musical traditions, I sought to incorporate this within a monogram, preserving a classic and elegant type with a sharper geometric line, and the font Landmark Regularperfectly fitted this bill which best encompasses a blend of traditional features with modernism.Branding2013

Diary of an Escaped Sex Slave
Sreypov Chan, a young Cambodian woman with a feisty laugh and a love of Kelly Clarkson songs, has a recurring dream: She's being chased by gangsters. They catch her and throw her into a filthy, cockroach-infested room. She knows what will happen next: She will be tortured — whipped with metal cables, locked in a cage, shocked with a loose electrical wire — and then gang raped.
Sreypov has lived this dream.
When she was 7 years old — an age when most girls are going to slumber parties — she was sold to a brothel in Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capital city, to work as a sex slave. The woman who made the sale: her mother.
For years, pimps forced Sreypov to have sex with as many as 20 men a day. If she didn't meet her quota, or if she tried to run away, she was punished in unthinkable ways — burned with a hot poker, covered with biting insects. And worse. "I wanted to die," she says.
Sreypov is among the lucky ones. At age 10, she managed to break free of the brothels and start a new life. Today, she's ready to tell her story, talking openly about her enslavement and escape, and about coming to terms with her dark past.
As shocking as Sreypov's tale is, she's not alone. More than 12 million people are now victims of forced prostitution and labor across the world. The buying and selling of humans is a $32 billion global business, according to the U.S. State Department's 2009 Trafficking in Persons Report.Art Direction, Editorial Design2013

A voracious reader, at age 11 Edison decided to read every book in his local library. His parents convinced him to be more selective instead, and he focused his powerful intellect on books on science.
Edison had an insatiable curiosity about how things worked. This curiosity led him to explore the world, and he soon moved to Boston to work for Western Union for several months. During this time, he met many other inventors and scientists, as Boston was considered the hub of the scientific, educational and cultural universe.
In the New York City area, his creatively truly flourished, as he saw opportunity around every corner. In 1877, he patented the first phonograph. Meanwhile, he was working frenetically to develop a practical incandescent bulb, a project that he would not perfect until 1879, after 10,000 attempts.
Before his death in 1931, at age 84, Edison obtained 1,093 patents, a remarkable accomplishment for anyone, but especially for someone who started life as a restless boy whose boundless curiosity all too often led him into trouble. Edison’s success can be attributed to his consistent optimism, which helped his family to believe in him, and then led him to continuously explore new ideas, against the odds, becoming one of our greatest inventors and a pioneer of the modern age.Graphic Design, Print Design2011
