"We’re aware that digitizing print makes information indexable, searchable, networked, and hyperlinkable, but we too often forget that pulling digital data out of the computer has its benefits too. In my mind, making a book is the main form of stabilizing screen-based content."

The good folks at O Novo Dia needed 3 illustrations to decorate their toilet. The brief was quite simple: illustrations of people shitting. I’ve decided not to make it too realistic in order not to offend anyone (after all, their customers are brides and grooms, an they can be hella sensitive about anything). The concept to develop the 3 piece series was “multitasking”: cigar, newspaper & smartphone

"Every organization needs to communicate intelligently, distinctively, consistently and effectively. Not every organization needs a logo. But communicating effectively is a complex challenge that needs to be addressed anew every day; making a logo is a largely formal exercise that can be priced, paid for, done once and locked up forever. It’s no wonder that so many clients and designers collude in the comfort of pretending the second activity is a substitute for doing the first."
