I'm a Brazilian graphic and type designer working across branding, packaging, environmental, and wayfinding design. Currently, I'm a partner and lead designer at Hardy, a studio with offices in Belo Horizonte and São Paulo, where I develop projects for global brands like Google, Google for Startups, Nubank, and O Boticário.

Previously, I worked in Amsterdam as a designer for Aruliden, an award-winning agency headquartered in New York, creating packaging design for Unilever and P&G. I have also worked as a graphic designer for Estufa, an in-house design agency at Inhotim, the largest open-air contemporary art museum in Latin America.

I have a graduate degree in Type Design from the Plantin Institute of Typography in Antwerp, Belgium. I also hold a bachelor's degree in Social Communications from the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Brazil, completed after a year of studying at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in Canada.
