Felipe was born in the suburbs of São Paulo, Brazil, where he broke his ankle six times between the ages of 7 and 12. Because he spent a good few months unable to leave home, Felipe began to draw. He still does.
After working in a few studios, he was invited to work at CUBOCC, a hybrid agency, producer and startup in Brazil. For three years, he worked with art direction and creative strategy for brands like Samsung, Kraft Foods, Unilever and Pepsico.
In 2012, a turnaround opportunity knocked on his door: he was asked to join Fabrica - the Benneton’s creative laboratory in Treviso, Italy. There, he worked for one year as art director at Colors Magazine (the magazine "about the rest of the world" Tibor Kalman and Toscani created in 1991). Also, he discovered the best ice cream in the world and had some of the greatest experiences in his life.
Back to Brazil, Felipe is now Brand Design Manager at Flag - The Creative Disruption Network. He’s also co-founder of Arnold, a graphic design studio, and part of two ongoing projects: Pinapipa and Unofficial Report. His work has been featured in exhibitions in Milan and Hong Kong.
He is open to freelance opportunities, unexpected proposals, collaborations and everything else that could teach him something.
