About

I am a brazilian graphic designer specialised in logo design and brand identity systems, who loves a simplified aesthetic to communicate a clear and precise message.

My approach

For me, the purpose of graphic design is simple: get the message across – beautifully and in a way that makes it impossible to ignore. Such an approach demands a certain economy of style. It champions the line. It understands colour. It loves geometry. It creates work that stands the test of time. The best work comes through partnership. Each job is much more than a simple commission: it’s a collaboration. Whether I’m designing for charities, writers, or manufacturers, the work you see here is the result of a cooperative approach.
