I had my first contact with art very early in my life, was in a Visual Arts School called FASCS, where I studied fine arts, having a chance to explore a wide range of techniques such as painting, sculpture, printmaking and drawing. Long time after, I started to work as a freelancer illustrator, having mostly metal/hardcore bands as clients. And, I also joined an Advertising school.
To increase the quality of my work, I majored in Graphic Design and Typography at the Anhembi Morumbi University. At that time I was already working in a Advertising Agency as Design Assistant. My improvement was huge in a small amount of time. And I also never did one thing at a time, at this stage I had already other two certifications, Concept Art and Academic Art & Draw.
I balance my day job with personal creative work, like photography and illustration. And I truly believe the environment you live, shapes your personal style, the creation of my personal branding helped me to find a direction, and the kind of design I want to represent.
For me, a good design is simple, but very deep in research, exploration and refinement. As a designers we have to be continuous learners, with open eyes for everything around us.
