Casa Rex, Brasil
Gustavo Piqueira heads up Casa Rex, a design agency/house with operational bases in Sao Paulo and London, delivering a broad range of strategic, original and experimental design projects for an extensive list of clients ranging from major global consumer companies such as Unilever to smaller organisations such as publishing houses, cafes, a kindergarten, an orthopedic centre and even a circus!
Gustavo has received the highest number of awards (48 in total) ever awarded to a graphic designer in the history of the ADG Graphic Design Biennial - the most prestigious graphic design award in Brazil. He has also won many acclaimed international awards such as the How Design Awards, AIGA 50|50, Communication Arts Design Awards, Pentawards and Rebrand100.
In addition to running Casa Rex, this prolific designer knows no boundaries: whether designing fonts (some of which have been distributed by the Digital Type Foundry T26); or having written ten books on diverse topics from design to football; illustrating various children's books; as well as recently conceptualizing a classic philosophy collection published by WMF I Martins Fontes (a well-known Brazilian publisher).
