HOWDY!

> My name is Pedro Henrique Diniz. I am a Brazilian-born, Austin-based Graphic Designer.

As a creative person, I like to tell stories with my designs. I believe it’s essential to add a second layer, a fun twist, or a dynamic perspective to your creations.

I’m a team player and enjoy working with people from different backgrounds and points of view. The key to a successful project is to drop your ego, understand your audience/final consumer, and analyze the outcome from different perspectives.  

I like to play with my sewing machine, ride my bike around town, and play retro games to unwind.

Thanks for checking out my work and hit me up if you have any questions, suggestions, or job opportunities!

500LEVEL

Design, Online Marketing and DTG Production.

 

500Level is an Austin based company specialized in sports apparel and licensed by major player’s associations, including the NFLPA, NBPA, MLBPA, NHLPA and WWE. 
One of the biggest challenges of working in a small and fast growing company is the need to wear many hats. During over five years working at 500Level, I had the opportunity to contribute to every aspect of an online apparel company, including client relations, fulfilment, product development, and quality control. I also attended national conferences and researched new technologies and processes to help the company grow.

BOMBSHELLER

Print design

Bombsheller (Now Komposite) is a Seattle based online store specialized in custom made-to-order leggings.

Bombsheller was a marketplace for artists to upload their art and collect a percentage per garment sold.  My designs rapidly became best sellers, such as “Titania”, which won best design of 2014. Due to this success, I started working as a contractor creating prints for fitness personalities and companies such as Ana Forrest Yoga and Girls RXd.

DREAMS

Print designer

Dreams was a startup company based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I specialized in design for accessories as well as designing surface patterns for leggings with creative prints targeting young adults, the fastest growing market in Brazil at that time. 

As the print designer, I was fortunate to collaborate with the fashion designer to develop capsule collections. The playful ethos of the brand allowed me to experiment with multiple illustration techniques and perfect my rapport & repeat skills.

OM.art is the subsidiary art studio of the Osklen group, which is home to Brazil’s top luxury fashion brand, Osklen. I primarily worked as a graphic designer for the subsidiary brand New Order as well as for its sister company Osklen.

ANA COUTO BRANDING

Intern – Trainee Designer 

Ana Couto is a renowned branding agency in Brazil with a vast portfolio that includes global brands such as P&G, Coca-cola, and Unilever. 

As an intern I had the opportunity to work on branding projects and present a fresh take on brand identities. As a trainee I worked with the strategy team and senior designers. Additionally, I created brand decks, interactive presentations, and promotional materials for large companies, such as Electrobras, Vale, and FGV, the Getúlio Vargas Foundation.

2010

GRADUATED

B.A in Visual Communication in emphasis in Marketing

 

Bachelor’s program at E.S.P.M. (Escola Superior de Propaganda e Marketing)
E.S.P.M. is a very ‘hands on’ program, which allowed me to work on real life projects while also developing my knowledge of marketing, psychology (semiotics), and ethnography. 

I graduated with an  A+ final project, a two semester project that involved creating an apparel sub-brand for Converse. Additionally, I conducted market research and developed a penetration strategy for the Brazilian Market. The second part of the project involved designing a sample collection and brand identity. This project resulted in a recommendation that led me to work at the Osklen group.
