Cover awarded in “Premio Esso” (Brazil) in the category “First Page”

From time to time, big topics comes along. It is usually something we couldn’t expect or plan, how the topic appears at your door, sometimes not even rings the bell and, suddenly, one is thrust in the most exciting experience that working for a newspaper can offer you. A thought-provoking activity that was not there minutes before.
You know you have little time for making it in the middle of a busy day, but it is too tempting to pass up.

It was what happened to me when I arrived in Correio Braziliense newspaper as Art Director.

The country was saying good buy to one of the greatest TV comedians in Brazilian media.
It was the first cover I made for this publication.

“Newspapers today, must grab readers’ attention and entertain the eye, as much as provide food for thought for the soul”

Win one of the most important journalism award in South America, means for me not only having a job or project awarded, but having the fight of how we should see newspapers today recognized.

This award reminds me the great time working with great people in Correio Braziliense. But specially my friend João Bosco, (that was art director before me and died last year) whom I dedicate this award.
