Gentil Memória

Vol. 1

Catalogue and Expo

2020 —  Graphic Design, Editorial, Curatorship
This booklet supports a restoration project about the history of Jaguaruna, Santa Catarina - Brazil, through the lens of photographer Gentil Reynaldo between 1940 and 1980.

The archive has an estimated 80.000 film negatives and 300 old silver nitrate glass photo plaques yet to be discovered.
A softcover 56-page catalogue printed in black and white on offset paper was produced for the first expo. 

The expo graphic design follows the same language as the catalogue, but wider spaces are properly filled with compelling content.


French Evolution

Website Portal
2011 — Digital producer, Art director, UI Designer
‘Evolução Francesa’ was the brand behind the content strategy of Lacoste in Brazil. Successfully turned over their blog into a fashion curatorship portal, recreating all content showcase and management.
Working closely with Live and Norte agencies, we designed and coded from content management system to interface, an entirely new end-to-end product.

Some backgrounds, typography and home arrangements For the first approval rounds.

The goal was to turn their successful in-house blog into an online portal, with constant updates from countless featured collaborators (stylists, designers, bloggers, photographers and trendsetters). Live agency provided a complete prototype with features based on their UX research and a set of new functionalities. 

We brought some ideas for the navigation like a fixed menu instead of tabs, modular content stacks, fluid random arrangements for home and inner pages. Was 2011, so we also worked on social media integration. As the project got bigger, it required rethink all content management and permission levels.

In the backstage a WP engine was elected to run the new platform with the capacity and flexibility the project required. Front and Back-end powerfully integrated by detailed levels of permission, providing total control over content and form.
A customized simplified CMS and an entirely new front-end interface ready for massive updates. The website was the main brand channel of Lacoste in Brazil until 2014.

2010 — Digital Producer, Art Director, UI Design
A printed pocket zine goes into a device experience. Designed for early tablets, this project was created, coded and launched within 18 days.

    The Challenge
    We had barely 2 weeks to transform an 80 pages pocket zine into a tablet-friendly digital version. Tons of professional extreme sports photos and videos, and an extensive written material to curate.
    The Content Management   
    The project was addressed to an event in Rio de Janeiro, so the content wouldn't be updated. To fit better in a digital version, we curate and shrink the written content to 30%, and concentrate on imagery and the best photos. Divided into sections, the content could be accessed in a one finger menu. Developed in HMTL 5, we could explore all multimedia features and accessibility tablets had at that time.

    The UI Solution
    Along with the content refreshing, we start to produce mockups to test the usability, the scrolling movements and the menu itself. Norte Agency brought illustrations to compose the screens. Following brand guidelines - using fluorescent colour palette, rough material concepts and strong typography - was created a customized identity for the zine.

    The Outcome
     Highlighting community projects and local heroes - and now in digital format - Nike could reach a whole new consumer generation in Rio de Janeiro.
