About me

Freelance digital designer & art director with over 14 years experience in agencies across Brazil, Italy, London and Barcelona. My design approach is based on insight, instinct and commitment. The essence of my work is guided by a core philosophy: to make functioning, timeless and beautifully simple work. I provide clients with meaningful user-centered experiences based on strong concepts that come alive in any format, from print to digital. I’ve had the pleasure of working with many talented people alongside clients ranging from small startups to large global brands like Honda, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, ESPN, Unilever, British Telecom, Ericsson and more. I offer my imagination worldwide. Let’s talk.
