Brazilian Eduardo Recife is an artist, a designer, a typographer, an illustrator, and a photographer—the order of which is I am uncertain. All I know is you can put any of his work side-by-side (below) and get a sense that they were composed using the same principles and by the same eye.
And in all his work there seems to be meaning. Not necessarily meaning that is easily defined, but meaning he is challenging us to discover.
His goal? He explains, “I´ve been drawing since I was little. At school I had notebooks filled with drawings instead of notes. I used to tattoo my buddies with a black ink pen. I used to draw on any kind of surface when I was bored… I believe it’s what I do best. It’s also the best way for me to communicate things I can’t find words for… It’s a therapy, it’s a hobby, it’s a job, it’s what makes me happy.”
Eduardo Recife’s clients include Adobe, Fast Magazine, Harvard Business School, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Paramount Pictures, Youtube, and many others.
