In 2021 I made some banners for the company Skinworld, a CS:GO skins website where fans of the game trade, buy, and sell their skins.
Here are some examples of banners developed:
Back in 2018 SK was close to signing the full Brazilian squad – led by coach Apoka with chelo, fnx, kng, felps, and b1t. Sadly, due to sponsor obligations, SK Gaming had to drop the CS:GO team, some weeks before the scheduled announcement.
The pictures below are from the announcement that was supposed to happen.
The concept was developed by me and the team, and I wanted to link the street art from Brazil to a business setting, because I never saw, at that point, CS:GO players in suits, and I wanted to play with the contrasts between the street heroes and the serious business team atmosphere!

A bit of behind the scenes shots that I really like:
Since 2020, I’ve been an employee of HLTV, a news website and forum that covers professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive esports news, tournaments, and statistics daily updated.
For the past 2 years, I managed their larger community in large community and created content for the forums and Social Media.
I worked on different kinds of projects across HLTV’s social platforms, always trying to keep our narratives exciting and engaging for fans worldwide.
Here are some of my favorite tweets I’ve done for HLTV so far:
Announcement video for the journalist Roque Marques, using a well know Brazilian-CSGO-meme “I will trust Roque Marques” – to communicate about our new hire
Some artwork and concepts we did for Social Media:
FTW – one of the largest Portuguese esports organizations, asked me for a logo proposal. They decided to keep their old identity, but here’s my logo proposal. The goal was to have a more minimal approach to their eagle head that would make the branding cleaner and easy to adapt to the different mediums required by esports organizations: social media banners, overlays, jerseys, and overall merch.
We wanted to give a fresh and minimal approach to the eagle head, but we did an illustration for fun, because we thought a drawing would make a great t-shirt for the fans!
Esports Bar now called Esports Conex, is an event that happens yearly that provides gaming and esports industry
professionals, with conferences, workshops, and networking meet-ups – the goal of Esports Conex is to be inspire business peers,
do business, and share experiences and knowledge.
We worked together for 4 months where I developed images and copy for articles together, focusing on hot topics and trends in the industry, have a look at
some of the work we developed together:
Kudos is a Swedish and Berlin-based company, they provide gamers a platform that pretends to unify fintech, e-commerce, and play-to-earn mechanics to revolutionize how gamers are rewarded through a Prize system that is unique, as well as a coin that cannot be used on several gaming platforms.
The identity of Kudos was based on a guiding star and aim symbol so common in first-shooting games, they wanted the symbol to be strong and recognizable since it was going to be used as a coin, and at the same time they didn’t want to fall on the usual champions of diamonds and arrow shapes.
Lurkit is a fast-growing Swedish gaming tech company on a mission to deliver the best ecosystem that connects all major stakeholders in gaming, the Swedish company approached me in 2021 to make a few customized banners for their new influencer platform.
The concept was a journey of the creator, that starts with research, as you can see in the first picture, the client wanted an illustration of a library to demonstrate
the action of the research done by the content creators about their best strategies to grow their platforms.
The second image, Lurkit asked me to illustrate a rocket taking the flight to the sky, symbolizing the creators’ success, once they gathered their best tools, they could fly to the stars.
