My name is Rafael Grampá. I began working as an illustrator at the age of 14. I began by illustrating self-help books – what I call the “how to raise your problematic teenagers sort”. During this period, I also did t-shirt designs, caricatures, children’s party decorations, coats of arms and logos for butcher shops and surf shops. After that I graduated to working as an illustrator for a kid’s comic publisher where the weirdest thing was that we were required to wear a tie. I went to work with animation in 2003 at the brazilian motion graphics studio LOBO where I was art director and concept designer for four years, working for clients such as Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Creme Savers, Banco Real, Grendene , Diesel and others. Recent freelance work includes the concept design for ESPN-NBA spots, for Wieden+Kennedy NY, directed by Blacklist’s CISMA, and the visual ID for RESFEST/10 Brasil, that includes a opening and a toy.
Actually I´m working on the feature adaptation of Lourenço Mutarelli´s graphic novel “O Dobro de Cinco” as production designer.
Besides that I’m working on a personal project, a Comic Book called Mesmo Delivery, that will be launch in April 2008.
