Hi, I am Zé (nickname for José 😊) Azevedo.I started my career in 2003 in my hometown Vitória, Brazil, working for local advertising and design agencies. My job was to develop ideas, layouts, and illustrations for print, POS, and advertising campaigns. I had the opportunity to work in São Paulo - Brazil’s biggest creative market - for national clients, such as Ponto Frio, Kopenhagen, Häagen-Dazs, Tekna, and Abril Publishing House. In Germany, where I lived for 5 years, I completed a master's in Integrated Design at the University of the Arts Bremen (HfK) and worked at Brandwave Marketing, for Bosch.

As a freelancer, I’ve illustrated and created visual identities for La Comunidad Buenos Aires, DPZ, DDB Istanbul, Lua Propaganda, Chemistry Ireland, Rothco, Ogilvy Brazil, and Ogilvy Shanghai.

Some of my work was published by several important design and advertising blogs as Ads of The World, Coloribus, Looks Like Good Design, typographicposters.com, Design Made in Germany, Fubiz, and Abduzeedo.

I currently work at Product Madness, in the marketing art team, developing campaigns for the Lightning Link game app.
