I am a 25 years old creative living and working between São Paulo and London. For the past few years, I’ve been involved with multiple projects ranging from editorial and art direction to branding and graphic design. With an authentic touch to creativity, my work is focused on the quality and tactility of things. Through a careful approach to all the elements involved in a creative project, I constantly try to find a distinctive way to illustrate a story.
Born in Uberlândia, Brazil, I moved to São Paulo at the age of 17 where I went to the Architecture and Urbanism school. In 2011, the year of my graduation, I got my first job in a design studio, Mojo, where we worked in collaboration with advertising agencies, putting together presentations and printed material. Soon after that, I created Sometimes Always, a place where I could bring to live all the things that I was interested in. I started cataloguing demolished buildings (Matta-Clarking), talking to young creatives (Premiere) and discovering the cheapest hotels in town. I also started making my own publications and exhibiting my work at art book fairs.
In September 2012 I moved to London where I was a student at the Master Publishing course at London College of Communication, graduating one year later. Since living in the UK, I’ve been involved with both commercial and cultural projects, either commissioned or self-initiated. 2014 turned out to be a groundbreaking point in my career. I redesigned the Brazilian fashion magazine FFWMAG and started working as a designer at Thames & Hudson.
Every since I started, my work has been taken several directions. Thanks to a bunch of great people full of nice ideas that are somehow connected to mine, I managed to experiment and create a body of work that is truly diverse.
I am willing to keep on expanding my skills and connecting with people to bring cool projects to live. If you are one of them, please feel free to get in touch.
