Hey!

I’m May Tanferri, aka Designer Nerd, 31, brazilian, designer at Revista GALILEU of Editora Globo, passionate about editorial design, hopelessly nerdy & author of Empatia (Empathy) and Studio Geek Stitch.

Empatia (Empathy) consists of two initiatives:

▪ a short documentary, in partnership with the photographers Deborah Maxx and Gustavo Arrais, which records my biggest exposure exercise inspired by the series Scarred for Life of Ted Meyer - in order to cause questions and reflections abour the aesthetic standards
▪ a children's book designed for those who experienced some illness, treatment or injury that resulted in a scar. Through illustrated stories, the book proposes ludic activities with the purpose of helping child's rehabilitation

Empatia (Empathy) was selected for the 11th edition of the Brazilian Graphic Design Biennial as Academic Project, as well as Featured Project. It was also featured on Creative Mornings BH Edition, the special round of lectures of the Brazilian Graphic Design Biennial in Rio de Janeiro, and on several Youtube channels such like Canal das Bee, Gorda de Boa and Minha Segunda Pele.

When I'm not designing magazines and talking about Empathy, I show my passion for nerd culture in cross stitch patterns on Studio Geek Stitch - pieces made by nerds for nerds with drops of Art History and Pop Culture!

Studio Geek Stitch was featured on Behance Curated Galleries (Craft) and the website So Bad So Good.
