Victor Aguiar Magalhães
a graphic artist based in São Paulo, Brazil


Despite being a proud architect, his heart has always beaten faster for the design and the graphic arts. The inclination towards the experimental, the spontaneous and the playful came to light during his undergraduate studies, and culminated with his first internship at Objetos da Floresta, on the making of the project’s book.

And along the past eight years, he has been working and collaborating criatively with major brands and companies, such as Calvin Klein Jeans, C&A, Cris Barros, Dafiti, DSquared2, Facebook, Fenty, Giada, MAC Cosmetics, Missoni, Melissa, Natura, Netflix, Vivara, and Von Trapp, and magazines, such as Vogue Brazil, Claudia, Quatro Cinco Um, and ELLE Brazil, in which he is the current lead designer for the print publication.

He is open for new projects and collabs. For inquiries, feel free to drop him a message.
