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, 16 years ago, and I’ve worked for global brands such as Asics, Nestlé, McDonald’s, IKEA, Peugeot, Renault, Mentos, AmBev, Carrefour, Reckitt Benckiser, Habitat For Humanity, Walmart,, Tim Mobile; and big national brands such as Kopenhagen, Etna, Renner, Amanco, Hering, Oi, among others.

During this time, 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.

As for today, I’m working in the position of ACD at FCB Brasil.
