Javier Leal – 6 anys en blanc

The Laus have become the most important awards in graphic design and visual communication of our country. Since its creation in 1964, they are organized annually by the Association of Graphic Designers and Art Directors of the FAD (ADG-FAD).

However, The Laus Awards could not be held for six editions, spec- ifically in the five years following its creation –1965-1969– and 1976. Graphic pieces and artists of those years are still not chronicled.

6 anys en blanc is an editorial project to create a solid base of six years withoutThe Laus Awards, and therefore the situation of graphic design in Catalonia and the pioneers of this profession at that time, through six volumes as tribute and recognition to the historical graphic designers and their creations, from a close and emotive point of view.
