José Eduardo Gayotto -

Designer and Visual Artist.

Besides all my childhood sketching, I could say I’ve started my carreer...

as graphic designer in 2004, and achieve my expertise many years later on, after working for publishing houses and design studios, as an Art Director, Graphic Designer and ilustrator.

Today I work as an Art Director for Rocky Mountain Publishing, and also have my own design studio, where I try to explore all Design areas, from Product Design, Service Design, Graphic Design to Exhibition Design and my personal art projects.

In 2016 I’ve founded a Startup exploring Data Science and technology subjects, during a Service Design and
Innovation course.

In 2017 I’ve studied Sculpture at MUBE SP with
Prof Israel Kislanski.

In 2017 I’ve also studied at IPEMA and graduated as Permaculture Designer - PDC (Permaculture Design Course)

I’m very fascinated about our historical period, where technology and crafts are forced to live together.

I try to explore many medias as a Designer and Artist, painting,sketching, murals, sculpture, architecture, graphic design, UX design, Product Design, Utopian Design, and a little bit of music composing.
