23 Apr

Hi Marcelo! We’d like to know more about you. First off, can you tell us something about yourself?

I am 31 years old and I was born in Curitiba, Brazil. I draw since childhood, always liked pencils and markers. I am very inspired by the colors.

Was graphic design/illustration a childhood dream? How did you train for it?

Yes, since childhood I knew I would work with something related to it. I train doing some doodles during the day, I always have one pencil, paper and an eraser with me.

What is a typical day like for you?

I work full time at my Design Office (www.ddq.com.br) working as Art Director. There I do not make illustrations like as you can see on my website. We work just doing corporate design, like brochure, folders, flyers, logotypes, menus. I just make my illustrations when I’m at home, at night.

What is your design philosophy?

I have in mind that, you cannot grow without training. If you want something, you need to do anything you can, to learn.

What is your current inspiration?

Some friends of mine, they do amazing works. I’m always feeding my mind, searching websites with amazing works.

I must say you have an amazing array of poster and typography work, with “Let’s Rock Around the World” as my personal favorite. How do you develop this type of work?

Usually, I doodle something when I’m in the office, the inspiration comes through music or any quote that I remember..

Can you tell us about “Lost Empire”? What was the design process for this work from start to finish?

This was created because one day I remembered that when I was a chilld I always enjoyned my art class, I was like my Art teacher. She always showed slides of Rome, Greece and others.

Any message for our readers?

Never say you do not know how to do something, it doesn’t exist. You need just training.
