Tell us something about your background to introduce yourself.
I’m Victor Salciotti, 26, brazilian, graduate Graphic Designer and post graduate Marketing Manager.
I create, plan, manage and develop online and offline communication uniting several disciplines, from thoughtful planning to creative leading and sharpen production of graphic projects, illustrations, branding, AI, UI, animation and sound design.
In the last 7 years I’ve worked in several projects which I could develop solutions for local and global brands such as Brahma, Natura, Claro, Abbott Brazil, Apex Brazil, Editora Abril, Cosan, Bertin, IdeaFixa, Rossi, Schutz, Bolshoi, Tilibra and others.
Where from do you get your inspiration?
Mostly on internet, for sure, but I try to find inspiration “offline” always it’s possible, such as old magazines, movies, fiction books and history/religious books for my personal project ALMA.
Do you use a sketchbook for your drafts?
Yes. I start every project I do on my sketchbook: brands, illustrations, interfaces and even music.
What is your favored machine (Mac/PC)?
Can I aswer “pen & paper”? :P
What new projects are you currently working on?
Currently I’m doing the art direction for a scientific educational web portal for Natura (the lead cosmetics company in Brazil), a marketing plan and project coordination for IdeaFixa’s (www.ideafixa.com) new digital platform and developing a visual identity for a small brazilian e-commerce focused on Decoration & Design.
Anything else you would like to tell us?
Since 2009 – on my spare times – I’ve been working in my personal project called ALMA, whereupon I explore new and different ways to represent death, a moment surrounded by misteries, doubts, fears and taboos. If you’re interested, take a look: www.salciotti.com/alma
