The work of Luiz Baltar

Communicating science visually since before the digital age

October 27, 2013

Although the popularity of the term infographic may come as something new for some of our readers, those who are a bit more keen to know about the subject will easily realize that newspapers and magazines have been doing them for quite sometime. And it’s always great when we have the chance to share the work of some of those infographics designers that have been around for decades now – like the Brazilian Luiz Baltar, our featured Portfolio of the Week.

Luiz lives in Rio de Janeiro, graduated in Arts from the Escola de Belas Artes (UFRJ), and has been focusing on scientific illustration and visual communication since 1990, when he was hired by “Ciência Hoje” (‘Science Today’ magazine), one of the first Brazilian official scientific publications.

After a brief period working in the O Globo newspaper’s graphics department, Luiz and some of the former colleagues from the time he stayed with Ciência Hoje decided to open their own design studio, “Ampersand Comunicação Gráfica.

Today, they keep delivering high quality illustrations and infographics to some of the most important educational institutions and companies in Brazil – like these ones Luiz sent us:
