Novembro is a project that was launched in the
fall of 2004. Although over the years have had
different approaches, it is now quite faithful to the
original idea. In the winter of 2001 during the first
eight months stay in León - Spain, following the
study of black and white photograph, appears an
amateur website to expose the material. With this
experience and after comings and goings between
Brazil and Spain, finally mounted Novembro
– a virtual gallery.
The general trend of linking new technologies
with “how easy”, “immediate” and “extended”, do
not think it’s all right. Digital cameras, computers,
internet, etc., have greatly facilitated the production,
lowering costs and increasing the potential for
dissemination of any text, image or sound.
When we looked into perspective this has
happened before. The invention of printing,
photography and recording systems provided
great revolutions. But technique is still required,
work and ideas. The medium is only half
– in itself is empty.
“…the life of the others, as comes to us the so
called reality, it is not cinema but photography, is not
amenable action but only Eleatic fragments cut.”

Design is not making illustrations, space distribution,
set the color, take pictures, or make use of fonts.
Designing even isn’t build objects, planes or rockets
– anyone can does that.
Design is thinking.
Good design is composed for 99% of rationality and
1% of imperfection. In this small part lies the singular,
the emotion and the character.
The difference between something that works and a
failure, is in knowing where the imperfection’s fits –
that is the art.

In a visual identity, everything is the logo. All ideas

I was born in Brazil in 1975. Since 2001 I
live in Spain by choice.
I love stories and abhor with the lying, but
for convenience sometimes I accept it.
I hate automatic transmissions and
congestion, the rush and meetings.
