Brazilian designer Felipe Rocha was born in São Paulo, Brazil, where he drew pictures and designed things until 2012. Then he received a request to relocate to Treviso in Italy to offer his services to Benneton’s much-respected creative laboratory Fabrica, and, more importantly, to help art direct their magnificent publication Colors.
After a year of smashing out some beautiful editions of the magazine he’s moved back home to work for Flag, set up his own design studio, Arnold and generally make himself available for freelance commissions which, based on the strength of the work you see here, should be coming in thick and fast.
We’re always in awe of Fabrica for their ability to get great people to join them in order to make great things, and Felipe is certainly no exception.
