Bio

Hi! I'm Marcos, and I'm a Designer / Animator based in London, UK. Currently, I work in the Fintech Industry at 11FS in London. For the last ten years, I've been designing for advertising agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi, Ogilvy, Vaynermedia, JWT, Y&R, Wieden + Kennedy. And working with clients like Google, IBM, Snapchat, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon Prime, Ford, VW. 

+ About me, that is not work-related.

 I'm obsessed with audiobooks; I love reading, but listening to books while working is perfect.

  • Every 4 years, I take a 6-month minimum Sabbatical Break (To check, I'm running in the right lane of life, I learned to do this from Stefan Sagmeister. The first big break was in the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil, where I lived without the internet, electricity totally out of the grid. The Second and the last one was in Asia in October 2019 (it was a more spiritual journey in between Forests, Temples and Mountains, from Nothern Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Philipines and China, Although It was interrupted in February 2020 because of the last pandemic). 
  • Learning is living for me; If I don't learn something new every day, I feel I didn't live to the fullest that day. That's one reason why I teach and share because I always learn something new! 
  • I'm Plant-Based (vegan), and I'm half-Brazilian, so going vegan was a chock for my family and, to be honest for me too, although after spending some time in the Amazon Rainforest and see the deforestation caused by Cattle farmers, I felt traumatized, and I was never able to eat meat again or any animal product again. 
  • My favourites Film Directors are Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, David Lynch, Fernando Meirelles.
  • Favourite Quote: “A goal is a dream with a deadline.” by Napoleon Hill
