My name is Fernanda, I’m a multidisciplinary designer from Brazil, currently based in Brooklyn.

I worked for 10 years for the two largest publishing companies in Brazil. In my last job, as creative director at Galileu (a Wired-like publication), I did the latest magazine redesign and was in charge of the entire art department.

I have lots of experience briefing illustrators (including data visualizations and infographics), photographers, stylists, prop-stylists and fine artists (and I also used to direct most of the photo shoots). My work at Galileu received considerable international recognition, winning several Society of Publication Designers (SPD) and Society For News Design (SND) awards.

Prior to that, I worked for branding and graphic design agencies such as the multinational FutureBrand. Over there, I was involved with O Boticário brand redesign and was responsible for handling Nespresso visual content in Brazil.

I've graduated at BA in Graphic Design. On my thesis, I analyzed how graphic language can be a tool and content for kids. I studied how typography, images and the book itself can impact kids’ reading and imagination. The final part of the thesis I designed a teaching book that took into consideration the final readers whose are not acquainted with differentiating the letters.

During Saturdays, I make pottery, ceramics and use my hands. I love to make, eat and take pictures of comfort food. Read Less
