In the October of 2013 Braulio Amado spent (maybe) millions of dollars putting together an elaborate and comprehensive promotional video to sell himself to the graphic design community at large. He wanted commissions, he wanted collaborations, he wanted access to the megabucks – plus he shot actual bullets from his hands at the end.
Bloomberg Businessweek witnessed this audiovisual tour de force and called him up quick-smart to enlist his services as designer and illustrator at their world-renowned publication. He’s been there for a good while now, bringing character and intrigue to otherwise complex factual stories, through the medium of “edgy illustration” and bold design. As ever we can’t sing his praises enough. Great choice Businessweek; hold on to this one!
