Hello ︎

This is Zé Pedro, Zé, JP, Zezo, Zezito, Pedro, Bortolini, and quite a handful of other variations of my name.

I'm a Brazilian art director, part time  illustrator and a really wannabe animator, currently living and working in São Paulo / Brazil. (I’m originally from Porto Alegre, RS, the most southern capital in the country, home of the best sunset in the whole world  - as it’s believed by the locals).

What I enjoy is the simple things in life: create stuff (weird, different and cool), draw stuff (usually is just weird, but I think is cool) and discuss nerd stuff (the weirder, the cooler).

Since I started working, 15+ years haven passed and I’ve worked for global brands such as Asics, Peugeot, Renault, Mentos, AmBev, Coca-Cola, Reckitt Benckiser, Walmart,, Tim Mobile,; and big national brands such as Kopenhagen, Etna, Renner, Amanco, Hering, Oi, among others.

I was fortunate enough to win some awards along the way, always accompanied by some very talented people. After all, no one can do it alone.
