Lingua Franca is the thesis book I wrote and designed at the Rhode Island School of Design. It frames some of the work I developed in grad school while examining how graphic design and art are used as a common language between people who speak the same language, speak different languages or have distinct cultural backgrounds. Understanding languages as living systems that are in constant movement and in direct relation with cultures, this book looks at graphic design as a platform for coding and decoding language, shaping and reshaping it. It is written in English and Spanish and features an interview with conceptual artist Alfredo Jaar.
