Poster series of collages with family photos.
As an exercise of design, collage and illustration, this was a self initiated project during my quarantine days. I had recently moved to a new country, a new continent and with all sad facts about the pandemic moment we live in, I became nostalgic. Which means, I started revisiting old album photos. It made me question many things, many decisions I took in life and also, made me see how much I grew as a person who loves art and design. Here are the results of the revisit: four posters bringing the tone of imagination, the photographic memory I have from my childhood and some phrases I heard and said.
This is the most iconic photo I have with my mom. However, I couldn't remember this day well, which made me blur it into halftones and fill it up with illustrations. I've always been a child with passion for photos and I remember visiting this photo so many times I had to use it.
My father is an accountant. We were never really out in museums but I grew up around his camera and his music. The camera was an object I couldn't touch until this day. He wanted us to make a photo, holding his camera, and I would never forget that day. Everyone wanted to touch it. However, when I they started asking me what I wanted to study in college, I said "performing arts".
He showed himself very disappointed with my answer, and from that day until now, he says: choose something else, art doesn't bring any money. 

I am a graphic designer and photographer. My brother is a musician. 
Sometimes art is inevitable.
Brazilian kids in the 1990's will understand this photo. Having a car in the family was a symbol of good status and prosperity. This Voyage was the first family car my dad had. And when he first got home with it, it was a symbol for the whole family and it brought the idea of what the future could be. These in the photos are my cousins, and we used to watch an american movie many times that makes all sense for this moments: The Dirt Bike Kid (1985), a movie about this kid who buys a special flying motorcycle. 
To close my session of nostalgic posters, it was a must work with this photo. It’s been a crazy year in Brazilian politics, and the minister of human rights in Brazil had said in her first months of work that girls should wear pink, boys should wear blue. So they don’t get “confused” about their sexuality growing up. In the photo it’s me and my cousin, in 1992. I guess colors never really played a role on our sexuality and we ended up taking the whole rainbow with us. I designed this on the International Day Against Homophobia.
