Just when you think you have seen about all you could bear from the collage trend you stumble upon work from someone like Brazilian artist Lucas Simões and are once again ensnared.

Comments Off on CampoGraphic Design


Classic is the word that comes to mind when trying to describe the work of Brazilian design agency Campo. Their work is simply that and it’s an inspiring browse of clean, contemporary and well-executed graphic design.

Comments Off on ZanskyIllustration


Brazilian illustrator Zansky has an almost lithographic/wood block quality about some of his work. It’s very tactile and feels like if you ran your hand across one in print a little ink might rub off on your fingers. There is more than one trick up the Zansky sleeve however as there is also a bit of design peppered in throughout the portfolio.

Lobo: Updates

Comments Off on Lobo: UpdatesMotion Graphics


Brazilian graphic design and animation studio Lobo has been animating graphics since the very idea of doing so started to become fashionable (at least in the capacity that it is done today). They have recently completed several new projects for several large clients that you can check out at their website. They have stayed at the top of their game and are still one of the very best in the business.

Comments Off on FirmoramaGraphic Design


It’s been a long time since I wrote about Brazilian design and creative studio Firmorama. They have since updated with a very slick website as well as an even slicker body of design work. It’s all very bright, fun and exciting. How much fun would it be to live in Southern Brazil producing excellent design?

Nando Costa: FOTB 2010 Titles

Comments Off on Nando Costa: FOTB 2010 TitlesMotion Graphics

You can thank Nando Costa for this compelling title sequence for this years Flash on the Beach event which I had honestly never heard of until I watched these titles. Nando is extraordinarily talented in the realm of motion and animation. He used metals with magnetic properties to accomplish this sequence and I especially enjoyed how the style and video do the heavy lifting while the typography is treated so exquisitely simple that it almost isn’t there. It’s a delicate balance that works very well.

I recently emailed Nando about my own studio but alas, never got a response. Well, here’s to him and his work regardless because I consider him one of the very best in the field.

Facu Samman

Comments Off on Facu SammanMotion Graphics


From what little I can gather from Facu Samman’s website is that he is Brazlian (or Portuguese) and an illustrator, 3D artist and animator. He’s most likely young as his portfolio reflects that but he is definitely doing some interesting things and could be rolling out a much more aggressive portfolio in the future. Definitely someone to check back on in the coming months.

Rafael Morinaga is a motion designer from Minas Gerais, Brazil. He has a wildly colorful portfolio of trendy but highly expressionistic and sometimes experimental project work. It’s all part and parcel for the great wave of design sweeping it’s way across Brazil where lately some very colorful, fun and exciting work seems to keep pouring out.

Brazilian design and photography studio Grima has a small but interesting body of work. There is not a lot in their book but what is there shows that they have a wide range of capabilities and take a unique approach to each project.

Comments Off on PianofuzzGraphic Design


Brazilian design agency Pianofuzz sent in a link to their interesting work that lives within an equally interesting website. I am not entirely sure, to be totally honest, if I like their website but it is different and in a way makes you more curious about who they are and what they do.

Brazilian design studio Quinta-feira which means ‘Thursday’ in Portuguese are cranking out a heavy dose of graphic design for print and editorial and have managed to amass a nice body of contemporary design work.
