Art director / Graphic DesignerDublin, Ireland
About me
I am an Irish-Brazilian Graphic Designer and Art Director who has worked as a freelancer on projects for print and digital, both independently and with design studios in Dublin and Berlin. My visual practise focuses on exploring aesthetics as the underlying objective tone which informs all moods in a given space to be analysed, visualised, and created, be it for print, screen or the environment. I develop visual identities, editorial design, photo and video editing, motion graphics, websites and typographic design. I am member of the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD), since 2019. rudydesouza.com

  • Gabilu Eco Crafts (2019)
    Gabilu Eco Crafts (2019)I was comissioned by Gabriel Checucci and Luana Felipe to help them develop a visual identity for Gabilu Eco Crafts. Initially the project was to develop a logo for their line of sustainable products. We consequently went on to create a full visual identity system for their business. The monochrome modular identity is simple and functional, with a variable bespoke typographic logo and leaf icon which are paired with a modern typeface, to enhance each product’s textures and vibrant fabric colours
