Kiss FM believes that rock is much more than a genre of music. It’s an entire culture, and it deserves to have its history preserved. And what better way to preserve history than in a book? But not just any old book. 

The Book of Rock. A book with biographies and illustrations of each band, accompanied by a record player and 10 records featuring rock classics. But that’s not all. When the record is played, you can listen to a classic normally. When the OTHERSIDE setting is activated, the record will spin backwards and tell the story behind each song.

Some stories


 

CRAFT


The original book, artisanally crafted in a painstaking procedure that took around 2 years to complete,from the development of the cover, which was hand-hewn in metal and wood, to the record player able to spin LPs backwards.

The illustrations were inspired by a medieval look. After a lengthy search, we found an artist able to reproduce, by hand, a style not easily found nowadays. Each detail and each patch of cross-hatching, from the bands themselves to the frames, down to the font, it was all drawn by hand.

 

 

-

The illustrations were made by my friend Sattu Rodrigues.  

 
 

-

I made the illustrations below to complement the book. 

 
 

-

The handmade typography was created by the talented Rodrigo Resende.  

 
 

-

The book cover concept was made in 3d by me. 


After that, the 3d process until the final wooden sculpture.

Campaign for O Boticário male product line. 

For this campaign we based on the stereotype that men don’t like to admit that they care about the way they look, even though they do take care of their appearance, but hidden from their friends. On the concept of “for the you that there is in the ogre” we created a musical in which ogres give beauty tips for those men who are watching, ending with the chorus “we take care of ourselves but we do not tell anyone”.

Brazil is a very conservative country and homosexuality is still seen with a lot of prejudice. That’s why O Boticário, one of Brazil’s leading beauty brands, decided to support the LGBT cause in its Valentines Day campaign. People used the campaign to talk about prejudice, LGBT rights and to push Brazil through a different and new way of thinking.

He entered the arena with a stunning white smile thanks to a LED mouth guard, and then we promoted the brand via Twitter. Retweets and other social media triggered as a result. About 30 million Brazilians watched our action on TV. It was also the theme of a variety of shows on TV in Brazil and worldwide.

Paul McCartney was turned away at one of the afterparties for the 2016 Grammys because the bouncers didn't know who he was. At the time, Sir McCartney joked that he needed a new hit to get famous again. We took him seriously.


We decided to make one of Macca’s songs a hit – not just on our airwaves, but all across Brazil. So we encouraged rock and roll fans to get the lesser-known song "Angry", from 1986, to the top of the charts. We used our own broadcast and social media profiles to invite our fans to request “Angry” from all the other radio stations. Kiss hosts themselves called in live to our competing stations, asking them to play "Angry.”

A project in which I was able to contribute with the development of the idea. 

 

On November 5th, 2015, the collapse of the Fundão Dam unleashed an onslaught of toxic mud that devastated the municipality of Mariana, where hundreds of families had their lives destroyed in the largest environmental disaster Brazil has ever seen. The catastrophe made headlines across the media, sparking a wave of indignation across the world. But time has passed, the media has backed off, and just five months after the disaster, the parliamentary commission created with the sole objective of finding solutions for the victims had two sessions canceled for lack of attendance on the part of the federal deputies. 

 

Aware that one of the most important functions of art is to force society to remember its most difficult moments, the Panamericana School of Art and Design decided to take a stand, sending an alumnus to the site of the tragedy. There, he heard the stories of those who lost everything and gathered up some of the mud that had devastated the houses, neighborhoods, and lives of these people. Back in the studio, the artist used the mud as a raw material to create a series of portraits of the victims, which were then displayed on the streets of Brasília, the capital of Brazil, strategically placed along the route that politicians take to get to Congress.

All of the visual identity was based on the mud aesthetic. To do so, I created a typographic family called “mariana doesn’t forget”. The font was handmade and then given a digital retouch.

 

Besides that, I digitally illustrated the area map where the billboards were distributed.  I did all the layout of the site where the action took place.

We wanted to find a way of helping GRAACC, a group that supports children and teenagers with cancer, which depends on donations to keep working. We managed to help them by creating a line of jewelry which used diamonds made out of the patient’s hair, with the revenue reverted to the hospital. Hair loss is a fact that most exposes and touches the patients, especially children. We believe that transforming their hair into diamonds we transform a symbol of fragility into something unbreakable, as the patient’s hope should be. Therefore the campaign’s name: Unbreakable Hope. Besides bringing a positive message, which raised the GRAAC patients’ self-esteem, the line Unbreakable Hope will continue as revenue for the hospital.

The ring


It was developed with a unique mechanism that allows the diamond to spin around itself, standing or upside down. It was meant to be an analogy of how the patients feel due to the disease: sometimes they are down, but with a positive attitude and GRAAC’s job, they bounce back.

“We have thought to execute the idea this way: people dive into the water and we project chaotic images on the surface, so that we could get the real image in only one shoot.  There is a little catch though, we don’t know if it will work out, lol” “Ok, let’s do it this way, however, I think that way…”

This was the dialogue I had with the photographer, which would be amazing just for having had his trust, but it becomes even more extraordinary when the photographer who took the challenge is the best one in the world: Ale Burset. Only he would have had the sensitivity to perform a job like that. See below the rehearsal shoot.

The typography was digitally hand drawn, as if it was dissolving in the water.

Concept – modeling – 3d Sculpture


After the concept has been created, I called the excellent illustrator Travis Louie to develop the characters’ design. From that, I transformed the design into 3d, adding details that made the illustration look more real. At the end, I changed one of Travis’s illustrations from male to female, respecting the style he had created.

Itaú is present in more than 27 countries in the world and is the largest bank in Latin America and the Southern hemisphere. The big challenge was to link the image of a bank with the biggest event in the world, which is the FIFA world cup, being a layer 3 advertiser in the event, competing with historic sponsors as Coca Cola, Nike, Adidas, Hyundai, Volkswagen, amongst others. Below, see my participation in the developing of its piece of work which I followed for one and a half years, and from which resulted in Itaú being the second most remembered brand in the event, behind Coca Cola only, and for a narrow margin. It had the soundtrack that most brought people together. I worked as the creative, art director and digital artist at distinct moments.

My participation in the strategy started at the Confederations Cup, when we decided to get closer to the Brazilian supporters. To do so, we used Itaú’s traditional blue shape, in which it came to life and started to take part into the world cup’s atmosphere. This way, we started to deconstruct the bank’s cold image, adding a more joyful and carefree feature. This idea was also used in vignettes, shown before TV programs related to the world cup, Brazilian championship games or exhibition matches.

 

-


Following the idea of carelessness and joy, we have created the campaign for the Carnival of Salvador (one of the most important carnival parties in Brazil) that brought together the partygoers and soccer, as if it was in a dance.

 

 
 

-

With the Confederations Cup, the Brazilian supporters met the Brazilian team again, and it has been of extreme importance towards the players’ motivation. From that on, the strategy went deep in a way of appropriating the field of emotion. Our campaigns were focused on the hearts of Brazilian people. At the end, we realized that this change of pace made a difference for the campaign’s success.


Great transformation

On this film I have worked only as the digital artist, developing the concept of the ending scene with the stadium on the planet Earth (which was used in the online version of the film). The film has won world repercussion, being praised by the president of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff.

World Cup’s soundtrack

 

Assured that the emotion’s territory was the best for Itaú, I developed the campaign of the world cup’s official soundtrack. It was widely accepted by the Brazilian people, with many national artists joining in, trigging hundreds of spontaneous versions on the internet. 


In the Cities Travelling film, created by me and my partner Guigo Oliva, we made the advert sequence from the “Great Transformation” campaign. The movie showed the migration of several Brazilian people, from the most different regions in the country, towards the great World Cup soccer field represented by the Maracanã stadium. We aimed at showing that, apart from where the people were from, all hearts were with the Brazilian team at the moment of the game. This movie marked the soundtrack launch, created by Simoninha and Jairzinho, performed by Paulo Miklos e Fernanda Takai. After the film launch, we received an email from the Brazilian coach Felipão praising us for the job.

 

I also worked as the digital artist of this film, developing all the concept scenes and CGI used in the film.

The soundtrack gained popularity and, because of that, we created another film that pushed our jingle from the spontaneous versions of the song created by the supporters.
