Portfolio of the Week - Luiz Salomão

Almost three decades producing high quality visual journalism

May 18, 2015

For this week’s featured portfolio, we headed back to Brazil to present you with the work of Luiz Salomão, a veteran designer that is currently working in the mobile version of Época magazine but who has a very respectable past of infographic design.

Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Salomão begun his career in visual journalism in 1986, in Brazil’s leading newspaper, Folha de S. Paulo. From there, he joined Editora Abril, where he had the chance to work for magazines such as Playboy, QuatroRodas, Veja, and Exame.

He then took some time to explore the advertising market, working for several agencies, before returning to the publishing world, this time to Editora Globo, more specifically at Época magazine‘s award-winning graphics desk, where he had the opportunity to work with Alberto Cairo, Gerson Mora, Marco Vergotti, among others – you can read more about the work developed there in this guest post.

The information graphics Salomão shared with us are from that period:
