A Quick Hello
Academy of Art University
Originally from Vitorino Freire - Maranhão, Brazil. A state that was a trading point for cane sugar between the Portuguese and the Dutch and a home for native tribes and explorers. A mix of cultures that precisely represents who I am.
I've started my professional and creative path in São Paulo, Brazil where I graduated with two BFAs, one in Visual Communication - Graphic Design and another in Advertising.
After working in agencies in São Paulo, I decided to go to San Francisco, California for my Master's Degree in Graphic Design. I admit I have learned and changed a lot over the past 3 years I’ve been in San Francisco.
I'm still passionate about art, design and communication. However, I've also discovered new areas of interest in creative research, design thinking, user-centred design and social design. Creative process combined with design and research can be the most powerful tool there is.
Some say design can’t save the world, while others say it can. I’m the positive thinker who believes it can if it involves observing, researching, experimenting and learning about the world we live in, who were are, and our future as a global community.
