johann vernizzi, graphic designer & art director.
(são paulo, 1991)

i was born and raised in são paulo - brazil, but as a kid I lived in canada for a few years. drawing cartoons was a huge part of my childhood, among with building lego and reading mad magazine - which a few years later i was lucky enough to have a few comic strips published on it. my interest for graphic design grew as i became a teenager, so i went to college (senac - sp) to study visual communications.

on early 2011 i started working as an intern at almap bbdo’s design team, where i still work these days as one of the senior designers. i’ve worked for clients such as volkswagen, havaianas, pepsico, mars, ambev, visa and others. on 2014, i was awarded with the cannes young lions design award.

besides that, my other love is music. i’ve spent my entire life playing on underground bands, which also served as a canvas for me to create artwork for album covers, video musics, t-shirts and posters. nowadays i like recording my stuff on a homemade studio.
