This brochure was designed and printed using techniques that didn’t require any electricity. It was a campaing of the electricity company EDP Group that tries to bring electricity to isolated communities in regions like the Amazon and Sub-Saharan Africa. In response, the designteam of Leo Burnett Lisboa decided to produce the commissioned brochure without the use of any electricity.
Actually, we are so dependent on industry, economy and technology for even the most basic of our everyday activities but this video shows us how difficult is it to make only a basic brochure without electricity.

Kazuki Guzmán is an Chilean/Japanese artist. He takes everyday objects and turns them into something extraordinary. From his chili sauce portrait on japanese rice delicate, banana illustrations using thousands of delicately placed needle piercings to a miniature chewing gum sculpture, his works are embedded with a delightful sense of humor. Via his web site:
‘My father is a macho Chilean and my mother is a delicate lady from Japan. Because of them, my work reflects not only the things I love, but also my most essential character traits…My artworks are often the accidental outcome of playful interactions between the materials and myself.’
