Felipe Rocha

Sao Paulo

Felipe Rocha was born in 1990. He grew up in the suburbs of Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he broke his ankle six times between the ages of 7 and 12. Because he spent a good few months unable to leave home, Felipe began to draw. He still does. When he was 13, Felipe won his first computer. He still remembers all the opening scenes of the films he made in PowerPoint for Windows 98.

Felipe worked for three years at CUBOCC, a hybrid agency, producer and startup in Brazil, with a people that he admires a lot. In late 2011, he and some friends set up a studio called Arnold (in honor of Schwarzenegger).

In 2012, Felipe dropped out of his last semester industrial design course at Mackenzie University in order to live in Treviso, Italy, where he now works as a graphic designer at Colors Magazine.

Felipe has a fetus and a skull tattooed on his left arm. He likes old diagrams, points, lines, nature, people with no frills and design made with sensibility.
