My name is Cezar Bianchi. I am a senior designer - experienced, driven, and highly passionate about branding. For the past 10 years, I have been working for Brazilian design companies – integrating and employing my education in both communication and branding. At each company, I was heavily involved in the creative process of concept development, as well as campaigning and brand design. In 2011, I moved to Miami, Florida, and immediately began working as an intern for a company called Lemon Yellow. I interned here for three months before being hired by a vitamin company called “Chosen Vitamins” as a brand designer. My personal goal was to re-design the entire company’s identity while improving the consumer perception of the brand within the first two years. In order to do so I designed new labels, stationery, website, and collateral materials. I currently reside in Chicago, Illinois, where I concluded a boot camp revolving directly around digital design – both UX and UI. I am also currently working on an ample amount of freelance work for numerous clients, combining my branding experience with a unique, user-friendly approach to marketing through research and design.

A branding enthusiast, Cezar is dedicated to study, to deepen and apply their knowledge about brands.
— Rodrigo Conde, Partner at The LED Project
Cezar is a great colleague, excellent professional and super-friend. I’m fan of his creative work. He has sense of humanity, very good person, fair and honest. I absolutely recommend him.
— Fabiana Reis, Sr. Graphic Designer at Affero•LAB
Cezar is a responsible, creative, deadline and briefing-oriented professsional, who can surprise the client with outstanding creative performances. More than creativity, strategic branding thinking is also one of his assets. Easy-going and a team player, it has been a pleasure working side-by-side with him.
— Andréa Musikman, Sr. Product Manager at Novartis
