Gabriel Finotti: Alter-Heroes

Work / Graphic Design

A treasure trove of great projects from designer Gabriel Finotti

One of the nice things about going to magazine launches is running into talented folks while you’re queuing for a sponsored-vodka-based drink. I can’t take credit for the meeting myself – I was too focussed on jumping the queue – but our art director Jamie got chatting to Gabriel Finotti through a mutual friend and it turned out the Brazilian designer’s work was pretty damn slick.

Gabriel’s only 25 years old and has spent the past few years living between London and São Paulo, completing a masters in publishing at London College of Communication and finally landing himself a design job with Thames & Hudson.

He’s still in the evening freelance game though, and his portfolio is packed full of print projects that demonstrate the extent of his capabilities. There are beautiful bits of music packaging, a wholesale redesign of Brazilian fashion magazine FFW and then this tasty catalogue and website for a film exhibition Alter-Heroes at the São Paulo Contemporary Museum. All very impressive stuff.

So next time you’re queuing for drinks, try having a chat with a stranger. They may end up being the right person to design that novel you’ve been working on.
