The logos, advertising materials, buildings, equipment and uniforms of Post Office and Telecommunications companies are part of Portugal’s imagination and collective experience, following the country’s technological, cultural, social and political evolution. Stemming from the exhibition Sinal – 100 Years of Telecommunications and Postal Service Design in Portugal, this book is the first to focus on the relationship between Portuguese design and telecommunications and postal services throughout the 20th century. It also reflects the structure of the exhibition as it is divided into six richly contextualized, documented and illustrated nuclei: Transmission, Network, Equipment, Message, Identity and Emission.
