Day of Design: 20 Years of Newspaper Design
Folha de S. Paulo
São Paulo, Brazil
Folha de S. Paulo, also known as Folha, is a Brazilian daily newspaper founded in 1921 under the name Folha da Noite and published in São Paulo by Empresa Folha da Manhã.
The newspaper is the centerpiece for Grupo Folha, a conglomerate that also controls several other enterprises. Throughout its history, Folha has always been a nimble publication, more responsive to social needs than its main competitors, all of which identified with the political and business ruling classes. It went through several phases and was targeted at different audiences – urban middle classes, rural landowners, the civil society – but political independence has always been one of its editorial cornerstones.
