Day of Design: 20 Years of Newspaper Design
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
O Globo (The Globe) is a Brazilian newspaper based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. O Globo is the most prominent print publication in the Marinho family’s Brazilian media conglomerate.
Founded by journalist Irineu Marinho, owner of A Noite newspaper, it was originally intended to be a morning daily to extend the newspaper interests of the company. In time it became the flagship paper of the group. Irineu died weeks after the founding of the newspaper and it was inherited by his son Roberto under whose control Organizações Globo (the conglomerate of media companies consisting of O Globo, Rede Globo, Rádio Globo, Editora Globo other subsidiaries) expanded to become Brazil’s largest media group.
