We’re incredibly proud of our Team at Synapsis Creative. To celebrate them, we’re interviewing a new designer every week. This week we’re talking to our Senior Designer Mark! Mark joined our team in April, and he’s already taken our design to amazing new places.
In your own words, what do you do at Synapsis Creative?
I am a sort of interpreter. I try to understand what clients want to communicate and what language their audience speaks, then bring that to life through visuals.
And what’s your career path been like?
I’ve been working in the design industry for over 15 years now. Born and bred in the harbour city of Santos, Brazil, I moved to Sāo Paulo in my early 20s to pursue a Bachelor of Communications with a Major in Advertising.
So how did you get into the presentation design industry?
About four years ago I got a freelance gig at Channel Nine. I had to prepare a presentation for their CEO, Mark Britt. At the time I knew nothing about PowerPoint, so I bought “PowerPoint for Dummies” and read it in a weekend!
What sort of projects do you love working on?
I love designing and producing special projects such as ads, apps, and presentations of course! I especially love projects where the client gives you freedom to go beyond their brand guidelines, which obviously doesn’t happen every day.
And what would you say inspires your work?
Everything! I believe design is not just a professional skill, but a life skill. To me, design principles like pattern, proportion, and unity can be found everywhere, even in nature.
What special skills and expertise do you bring to the table?
I think I bring an holistic and integrated design vision to the table.
So what do you enjoy most about your role?
I’m curious by nature, so I enjoy learning about different clients and their products as well as different software and platforms. I still have a strong accent on PC’s and Android devices.
And finally, what do you like to do in your free time?
When I’m not designing, I can be found riding my motorbike with the wind through my…hair. You might also see me photographing life and documenting journeys on my personal passion project – Pens&Lens. I also love camping and exploring the outdoors.
