Mau Borba

Director & Lead CG Artist

Cotia, Brazil
I’ve worked as a visual artist and animator for 18+ years.

As a Lead CG Artist, I contributed to award-winning projects at State Design (Los Angeles), Consulado (São Paulo), and SmashLab (Vancouver). Today I freelance remotely on projects for world-renowned studios and agencies, helping them with Design, Animation, and any development in between.

Studios I worked with over the past years: Buck, CESS, Consulado, Elastic, Rise, State, Tendril, and Vetor Zero.

I've been serving brands like Apple, Amazon, BBC, ESPN, FS1, Microsoft, Nickelodeon, NFL Network, OnePlus, and Under Armour.

Let's chat if you think I'm a good fit for your project.
