I am a very creative, organized and branding focused graphic designer with an educational background in design and philosophy. I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but currently live and work in Toronto, Canada. In the last 12 years, I have been working in a diverse scope of awesome companies and also doing a lot of exciting stuff as a freelance.
I love being a designer because it requires me to balance creativity and reason all the time. It is art and it is problem solving, inspiration and transpiration, spontaneity and thinking. And that’s pretty much like I am. I usually pursue simple and conceptual design solutions, and that is the reason why I am particularly passionate about brand identity. All principles of typography, illustration, composition, colour and brand positioning are condensed there. Every tiny detail communicates substantially.
I am very easygoing and naturally curious about unusual things, how things are made, science, philosophy, food, animation movies, children TV shows and marine aquariums.
