My name is Makoto Saito, 28 years old. I am a Japanese-Brazilian born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil.

I concluded my bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design, in 2013, at Centro Universitário Belas Artes de São Paulo (São Paulo’s Fine Arts College).

In 2016, I participated in Yamagata Prefectural Overseas Technical Trainees Aid Program in Japan. On this program, I had the opportunity to study at Tohoku University of Art and Design (TUAD) and work at FLOT design studio.

Currently, I’m working at FutureBrand São Paulo, developing projects focused on branding for national and international companies (Oi, Itaipava, Banco do Brasil, Localiza, Grupo Boticário, Grupo Jacto, COTY, Nestlé, Santander, Cielo and Zurich).

Passionate by branding, visual design and specialty coffeeholic.
