PROFILE


I STRONGLY BELIEVE in PASSION, HARD WORK, and CRAFT with CARE. currently, I AM having a great time WORKING as a FREELANCE ART DIRECTOR.

I STRONGLY BELIEVE in PASSION, HARD WORK, and CRAFT with CARE. currently, I AM having a great time WORKING as a FREELANCE ART DIRECTOR.


 

I am driven by solving problems through creativity. I love to mix bold ideas with well-crafted designs to achieve high-quality work. Work that might change not only people's perceptions but their lives as well. On top of that, I also love to lead teams and collaborate across departments to get the best creative work done.

I have more than 15 years of professional experience with a focus on storytelling, digital experiences, and visual identity systems. Although my strength lies in visual arts, strategic and conceptual thinking plays a big part in my creative process. That's why I'm passionate about books, especially books about philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience. I believe reading allows me to keep my mind sharp in order to propose more accurate solutions to brands’ and people's needs.

Over the past few years, I've had the opportunity to create integrated campaigns for large brands and companies such as Havaianas, Coca-Cola, Netflix, Getty Images, Oakley, Volkswagen and many other national and international brands. My work has been recognized in creativity festivals such as D&AD, Cannes, One Show, Clio, The FWA, Awwwards, among others. I’ve been honored to have a film displayed in the MoMA’s permanent collection (Endless Stories for Getty Images).

Feel free to drop me a line. I'm always up for a nice chat:

Endless Stories

Our industry is undergoing plenty of changes, but one of the trends that’s here to stay is content as advertising. Entertainment content, to be more specific. And Getty Images has an asset that has the potential to become a great line of business: the editorial archive.

To communicate the more than 250MM of images and videos from Getty Images’s Editorial Archive, we created a short film and an interactive website made entirely with our content. They recount the story of the Fight of the Century - and also all the amazing tales surrounding the night of March 8th, 1971.

Living Images 

Getty Images has millions of images in its archives. But there are some photos it doesn't have: of animals that went extinct before they could be photographed.

As a part of the global concept: Move the world with images, we reconstructed three extinct species that were never photographed, using photos of animals that are in danger of extinction right now. A warning to people that many more species across the planet may disappear if we sit still and do nothing.

Then we invited Ami Vitale, famous wildlife and conservation photographer, to embark on a journey to take the first picture of an extinct animal in its natural habitat.

ZIMWI

To launch the new Fila running shoe, we came up with a creative strategy that brings storytelling to a product that is usually all about rational and functional benefits.

Inspired by the folklore of ZIMWI, the mythological Kenyan monster that inspired the name of the shoe, we created a short film telling the story of a boy overcoming his greatest fear by running towards it.


To drive the visual concept, we focused on the main technology built in the shoe, called Energized Ribbons. This feature served as the key element to inspire the whole campaign: films, posters, prints, OOH ads, and content for social media.

Dreamland VR

Bob Burnquist, one of the greatest skateboarders ever, was about to release his first pro shoe by Oakley Brazil. To deliver something more relevant to consumers, we created an amazing VR experience at Dreamland, the skater's famous backyard playground. The audience had the opportunity to put on Bob's shoes and ride his own mega ramp.

The film was released in both YouTube 360 and Facebook 360. We also created a limited-edition cardboard VR viewer attached to the shoebox, gifting the buyers with a unique way to watch the experience.

Havaianas MTV Awards

In 2018, Havaianas was one of the main sponsors of MTV MIAW Awards. So to connect Havaianas with a young target, we come up with a second screen experience. During the break, we showed Whindersson Nunes, one of the most famous digital influencers in Brazil, trying to exchange Cleo's Havaianas sandals with the audience.

Real-life cheat codes

Old school Gamers used to share a common dream: to make video games cheat codes available in real life. That’s what we did with Havaianas, the world’s biggest flip-flop brand to celebrate International Gamer's Day.

We’ve programmed cheat codes from classic video games in the brand’s e-commerce and invited people to discover them. When they did, ta-da: an exclusive discount was unlocked. A virtually no-cost activation that drove sales 21% in the period of the campaign.

New Polo / Up! / Amarok

In 2016, after launching its new modular design platform called MQB, Volkswagen introduced a new brand positioning in the Brazilian market.

The evolution of this movement on the digital landscape is told on the brand's subsequent websites: Amarok, up! and New Polo, the new models for 2016-2017. To create a consistent identity between the platforms, we established a system focused on 3 key points: sophisticated art direction, intuitive UX/UI, and relevant content.

Monumental

I designed these boards for a Brazilian skateboarding brand. With a modernist touch, the visual concept behind the graphics was inspired by the reinforced concrete, one of the most important element of the modernist architecture at the 20th century.

Easily found on the most iconic Brasilia city' buildings designed by Oscar Niemeyer.
