Built between 1936 and 1946, Matosinhos Market was projected by ARS-Arquitectos. A Portuguese modernist architecture icon, characterized by its white strong light and the seaside lifestyle. A building of public interest, Matosinhos Municipal Market maintains its original function, and has been open since the first half of the 20th century. Famous for the fresh fish, it succeeds in allying the tradition of ancient markets – where visitors are confronted with a cornucopia of different delicacies and multicoloured stalls – with the architectural beauty of the surrounding space. Vestígio designed the new graphic identity of the market, part of the city strategy to promote the "new life" of the market - that now includes a design studios incubator inside.
Inspired by the building's modernist shapes, modularity, tiles and color, the new communication system of the Matosinhos Market is a modular system, developed to become the base for future type compositions, patterns and illustrations - a reflex of the new users of this market.
