Únicos, informais e importantes
Presentes no nosso dia-a-dia, o resultado de um trabalho que exige técnica e bastante prática, os famosos cartazes de supermercados não são só apenas uma forma de saber o que está em promoção, mas são verdadeiras obras de design manual. Desconhecida por muitos, a profissão de cartazistas é um cargo chave dentro de supermercados e lojas de rua que querem anunciar seus produtos, uma vez que, por ser uma linguagem visual que pode ser considerada difundida em diversas partes do Brasil, facilita ao cliente identificar e levar em consideração as mais diversas promoções, uma forma de publicidade quase que obrigatória. Mas, para isso, a profissão exige técnicas de desenho de tipos que seguem um mesmo padrão. Kerning, espaçamento, serifa ou não; são termos que, em muitos casos, não estão no cotidiano desses cartazistas, mas sim outros termos, criados na informalidade para fazer referência a técnicas e assim não sair do padrão. Falando em padrão, ele também determina as cores, nada de confusão com CMYK, RGB ou Pantone; as cores aqui são padrão e ditam a mensagem: preto para letras e vermelho para os números, que em grande parte ocupam um maior espaço no cartaz. O motivo? São os preços, o que te faz gravar aquela promoção rapidamente. O trabalho do cartazista não se resume, entretanto, à confecção dos anúncios. A estratégia de posicionamento de cada cartaz é pensada, sempre com objetivo de facilitar a procura dos clientes pelos produtos. Você imaginava que aquele simples cartaz vermelho e amarelo mostrando a promoção do feijão era mais complexo do que parece? Fotos: cartazistas.wordpress.com
