[About]

Graphic designer and researcher based in Newcastle, Australia. Currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Newcastle. With broad experience in editorial design and typography, I have worked as creative director of major Brazilian magazines and newspapers and designed custom corporate typefaces for major Brazilian brands, and as a lecture in some Brazilian bachelor and postgraduate courses for 15 years. I hold a Master in Typeface Design from The University of Reading (United Kingdom). 
As a type designer, I enjoy the challenge of solving specific design problems. So I have focused on the making of custom made fonts. By acting as creative director and type designer, I have experience in both sides involved in type business, providing me with a good understanding of new trends. Today I work closely with type foundries in order to provide good type solutions to designers, and that includes foundries granting me access to fonts under development. In exchange, I provide them feedbacks.

I have presented talks in more than 70 design events in Brazil, Ireland, Mexico and United States. I have published articles in magazines and books, and I was mentioned in many others that covering Brazilian design and type scene. Constantly I take part of the jury in design competitions, such as the Brazilian Biennial of Graphic Design.
