My Story

I graduated in Industrial Design from UNIVALI (2008), and did a post-graduate in Design Management from UFSC (2011). I’ve been working for more than twelve years in the Brazilian and Irish market as graphic designer.

My portfolio consists of a collection of innovative and market-driven products that I helped designed while working with companies. As with most design jobs, my role involved participation with a larger team. Typically these teams included commercial managers, engineers, market professionals, consultants and final clients, who collaborated to develop the most suitable product for each market.

My expertise transcends the creation of products and graphic pieces as isolated elements. I am au fait not only with graphic design, but also the design management process in which many people are involved.

The aim of my work is to translate the concept of a company into tangible and intangible attributes, such as product and brand, both finely aligned.

The building of the brand image is a strategic process, as the company adopts it consciously to the public to identify it and differentiate it from other organizations. So the object of this article is the search for the alignment of Tecnoblu company’s communication, done at the suggestion of a strategic action, broken down into tactical and operational actions.

tags and different accessories for the fashion industry, serves major fashion brands in Brazil and Argentina, and positions of different segments, with a volume of 72 million of parts produced per year. We tried to reference the emergence of the postmodern individual, fragmented in cultural landscapes, emotional design and the own history of the company to support the implementation of the strategic plan, tactical and operational where company, employees, partners and customers participate and interact in the construction of the meaning of the brand.
