Portfolio of the Week - Cecília Andrade

When the fascination with infographics dictates the career

October 14, 2012

We continue in Brazilian lands, bringing today the Portfolio of Cecília Andrade, a designer from the Northeast state of Ceará. The colorful style present in many of her designs doesn’t disguise the multiplicity of Cecília’s talent, showing a wide range of techniques and skills.

With a degree in Architecture from the Universidade Federal do Ceará (Ceará’s main Univesity), a design course in the Centro de Design do Ceará and having worked as an intern in advertising agencies and in the University’s Museum, Cecília soon had to face a choice between following a career in the agency business or embrace a passion  for infographics she nurtured since a very young age.

Her career started in the newsroom of O Povo newspaper, where she was part of the team that won the Esso Award in 2008. Since then, she’s been working as a freelancer, having her works published in important publications like the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, and Mundo Estranho, Aventuras na História and Saúde! magazines.

Here is a sample of Cecílias work:
