In 2008 he joined one of the most important global companies, based in London. During eight years, he grew into many roles, up to Deputy Creative Director at global level. Together with an international team, he worked for 5 out of the 12 World’s Best Brands, according to Interbrand's report. In 2016, he decided it was time for a change, time to reconnect, and became an independent type designer.

Photography for me is the ideal therapy to counter balance my career as a typeface designer. There, I only work with black and white shapes; in photography, there are as many colors as the eye can perceive. Still, both share some essential principles: the precise attention to detail and the sophisticated technique to manipulate visual elements and our perception of reality.
Photography has always been with me. My great-grandfather was the first photographer in Campo Bom, in the countryside of Brazil's southern state, where I was born. My grandfather followed in his footsteps. I was lucky enough to learn still to photograph with film and to process it in a darkroom of Unisinos University.
I'm interested in photography as a support for art. More than documenting reality, I want to interpret it. Accentuate and propose new meanings. Play with contrast, saturation, freeze or let time dance through the image. I continue to live in the serenity of the countryside, in Sapiranga, traveling and working for the world. Read Less
