Hello! I’m Vanuza Amarante, Brazilian graphic and product designer based in Winnipeg, Canada. Art has always been present in my life, I was a curious child, borrowing my dad’s Zenica camera I discovered how life can be captured using colours and contrasts. My passion for colours and shapes started early, making me decide to focus my studies on Industrial Design since 15 years old.
I graduated with a degree in industrial design in 2007, at that time I was working for a design studio in Sao Paulo, Brazil, called Seragini Farne. In the meantime, I had international work improvement experiences, working in collaboration with Vantage Studios, in Canada.
As a way to enrich my business skills to compliment my design background I enrolled in the masters of entrepreneurship at Senac-SP, that included a summer course at Babson Executive, in Boston MA, wich I graduated on 2013.
Since graduation I've completed several major projects, the most recent are listed on this website. They include corporate branding, annual reports, packaging, brochures, magazines, and other graphic pieces.
I’ve been close to the photography market since 2008, when I made contact with this interesting niche. I created a workshop for photographers called “Design on Photography”, where I teach them the basics in design guidelines for their services and products. The projects related to this niche are posted on the Vaalbuns Design webiste.
