It takes a seriously design-oriented brain to be able to count illustration, art direction, photography, video and graphic design among its gifts, but Paulo Melo does so. The jack of all trades has proven the “master of none” part of that fabled expression to be entirely untrue, as he really does have fingers in several creative pies.
We were particularly taken with this collection of images for Catalogue de Paris, in which he splices fashion photography with shards of vibrant colour, creating graphic images with a strong visual aesthetic but without detracting from the impact of the clothes. You can take a look at the rest of his bountiful portfolio here.
