Olá! I am a Graphic Designer and Lettering Artist working with all kinds of projects in which letters play a fundamental role, especially branding, book covers, posters and murals. I studied Graphic Design in UFPR, Brazil and then continued my studies in Illustration, Typography and Editorial Design in Barcelona (EINA and Elisava) and in New York (Cooper Union).
I'm based in Curitiba, Brazil, yet I can often be found painting a mural or speaking at a conference in other parts of the world. My work is known for its quality and versatility and my clients include Google, Nestlé, Coca-Cola, Penguin Random House, &Walsh, Nissan, Kimberly-Clark, Workman Publishing, Hachette Book Group, among many others.
I'm happy to have been awarded several times by Communication Arts, Brazilian Graphic Design Biennial and the Type Directors Club with certificates of Excellence in Typography, for personal and commercial projects.
