/ about

I’m Rodrigo Fortes. Born in a small town in Brazil. Lived in São Paulo for almost 10 years, where I graduated in Graphic Design in 2008. In 2013, I decided to move to the cold Stockholm, Sweden. I attended the Hyper Island Interactive Art Director program that ended in June 2014.
I have more then 7 years of experience as a Graphic Designer.

I’m always trying to push myself to do new projects and develop a wider range of capabilities. I got pushed into the world of freelance because I like the freedom of touching different areas of design. And it’s helped me develop and grow as a designer. It has given me the opportunity to constantly work with new people as well as new kinds of projects.
I’m passionate about learning new things, to learn by doing, and step outside my comfort zone.

I’ have been working as a Freelance Graphic Designer with clientes from all over the globe. Such as US, Australia, Brazil, Sweden, Germany, Singapore and others. Engaged in different projects, such as illustrations, infographics, identity, web design, ui/ux, video mapping and more.

I’m now spending more time exploring the links between design, art and technology. Developing personal projects, and think of new projects to be involved.
I am co-founder of studio Muuus, which is still in its early development stages.
