Profile
Hi! My name is Makoto Saito, 28. I'm a Brazilian Graphic Designer with experience in developing projects focused on branding and visual communication. I create logotypes, visual identities, packaging, and editorial design projects.

For 7 years, I've been designing for national and international clients such as Nestlé, Banco do Brasil, Itaipava, COTY, Oi, Cielo, BRF, and Colgate in brand consultant agencies.

Currently I’m pursuing a Master’s degree in Integrated Design at Anhalt University in Dessau, Germany, and working as a Freelance Designer.

I'm passionate by design, esports and specialty coffee.
