Dorina Nowill Annual Report

The annual report Dorina Nowill is a publication that presents annual results of the foundation's performance, essential for the maintenance of its funders, which allow it to assist blind or with low vision people free of charge. The graphic project developed by Laika sought to bring the reality of the blind to the experience of reading the book, exploring the tactile sensation, as a relief in the printing of the cover, and the points printed in Braille, presenting the reader with aspects of the daily life of blind or with low vision people through Braille reading resources.

Ruis Vargas

Since 2001, Ruis Vargas has been heading the Laika pack. He uses his tentacles to work the WORDS into shape – reaching screenplays, literature, critical essays and a variety of texts in the vast universe of semiotics, history, art and culture – and to conceive them graphically. DRAWING is his material thinking: the visual body of ideas, elaborated with the techniques of illustration, typography, design and photography. Further to Laika’s productions, Ruis Vargas is the creator of graphic novels and comic strips that have been published for many years in newspapers and magazines and have been recently collected in a series of books. Such is the extension of his tentacles, which explore an immense ocean of creative and conceptual possibilities, giving life and form to ideas: new lines, logic, aesthetic sense and applicability.


Laika is a design studio in a small tree-lined village in São Paulo. Just like the space travel female dog that gave its name to the Laika office, it's a way of looking at the same object from a different point of view. Since 2001, Laika has been traveling through the most diverse design modalities, always beginning from a method that starts from semiology and discourse analysis, for brand building.
