Simon spent his childhood and youth in Santa Catarina (South of Brazil). He majored in Journalism at the Universidade Federal do Paraná, and in Graphic Design Technology, at the Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná, and started his career in Curitiba, making illustrations and comic charges.

But it was in 2008 that he started focusing more in infographics, when he took the job in Brazil’s biggest newspaper, Folha de São Paulo. Since then, he saw his work being recognized at Malofiej and SND for several times. Simon’s work continues to expand, as new types of information visualization gain room inside the newspaper. Motion videos and interactive data visualizations are becoming more popular, and Simon has been a key factor inside Folha’s graphics department to cope with those changes.

Let’s look now at the works Simon sent to us:
