'IT'S GRAPHICS NOW! The words of the Future' is the leitmotiv of this issue, presenting a tribute to graphic design and visual communication through shapes and symbols from the minds and hands of 14 international graphic designers who were asked to express their views of the future with only one word translated into an image or a logo.
The special graphic settings were present in the main court and various sections of the fair in different sizes, materials and shapes. Pitti Uomo recognizes the importance of symbols and the role of visual communication in the life of the present and the future.
Featured young designers for this project include: Yorel Cayla, Formes-Vives, Julia, Hey Joe, Martin Nicolausson and 9 more.

Monkey(painted with watercolours) by Munich based Bureau Mirko Borsche, was in charge of the topic 'Money', represented by the 'Money King Kong' as a symbol of radical power and the impact of money in the world.


Technology by Martin Nicolausson, intends to express the integration between human and technology, exploring the way machines could help improve the bodies and minds of people in the future.
