This publication was made on the context of Conversas: a series of very informal meetings so we can get to know and discuss projects and interests. They take place every Wednesday in two studios in Lisbon.
Conversas is a project by Constança Saraiva and Mafalda Fernandes.

“To design this publication Conversas I-X editors Mafalda Fernandes and Constança Saraiva and graphic designer Isabel Lucena planned on spending just a week and a half. However, like a conversation of 'just half an hour' that extends itself to endless hours in the night, the process of content editing and designing took more than 3 weeks.
‘Palavra puxa palavra’ is a portuguese expression that means something like ‘a word after another’, this was the popular saying that inspired the design for the publication, but its maybe more accurate to say ‘image after image’: throughout the publication images of the regular meetings follow side by side in a line from top to bottom, creating a wave of pictures from large to small and from dark to light. It's a clearly low-budget publication but planned and designed with enthusiasm and care from the team. “
