New ID for Antarctica
In early 2018, the cans and bottles of Antarctica beer, launched in 1885, gained a new design. Such design style aimed to focus on the brand's history, reinvigorating the iconic penguins and drawing on the symbols of samba from Rio de Janeiro. The idea was to modernize Antarctica's visual identity, while keeping in mind its 133 years of tradition. The penguins that have accompanied the brand since its foundation have now become even more iconic. The "blue ribbon" that have been part of Antarctica's labels throughout the twentieth century is also back. This is also the case with the barley crest, which had been missing in previous versions of the labels. For many years, the "Blue Ribbon" was synonymous with Antarctica. Nothing could make more sense than having it modernized back, rescuing this tradition. As for the new label's coat of arms, the symbol is inspired by another carioca passion: samba and its insignias of carnival music bands and samba schools. These vividly translate the Carioca suburban environment that is so characteristic of the identity of Antarctica beer's everyday life.

Soma
Launched in November 2016, Soma was born from the dream of 3 enterpreneurs from Duque de Caxias who wanted to inspire positive social change in their neighborhood. The multidisciplinary space is called a "Creative Hub" and it is located 20km from the city of Rio de Janeiro. The brand's symbol consists of a 3D composition of the triple plus sign. The idea is to translate the creators of this multiplatform space's desire to promote exchanges and experiences between diverse segments like music, gastronomy, surfing, fashion and communication, among others.

Área Útil
Área Útil is a architecture and city planning studio. All of their enterprises promote an intelligent and optimized use of space but also take into account rational use of financial and natural resources. When I created the logo, my main focus was to give more meaning to the words’ initials. The two initials, which are depicted by a triangle and a half-circle, complement each other making it a rational, balanced and symmetrical composition. The visual identity gave rise to spaces where geometrical forms forms have settled in several compositions forms have settled in several compositions bringing movement and beauty.

Kung Fu Cheetos
Cheetos was looking for ways to get their audience to help them choose new flavors for new products. Instead of doing a survey to get their answers, they created a game that emulates the training stages to achieve Kung Fu mastery. As the player gains experience, a voting process is unblocked, turning this experience into a fun decision-making process. I was responsible for creating the new game's logo, designing the navigation icons of the game’s interface and also the icons for each kick/punch used in the fight.
