Hello! I’m Vanuza Amarante, Brazilian graphic and product designer based in Winnipeg, Canada. Art have 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 by focusing my studies on Industrial Design since 15 years old.
I graduated in this specialization in 2007 and at that time I was working already on 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’ve enrolled on the master course in entrepreneurship at Senac-SP, that included a summer course at Babson Executive, in Boston MA, wich I graduated on 2013.
During these years I’ve done several projects, which 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 first got contact with this interesting niche. Since that I created to wedding photographers my workshop “Design on Photography”, where I teach them the basics to use design guidelines on their services and products. The projects related to this niche are posted on the Vaalbuns Design webiste.
