Hello! Thank you for visiting my portfolio! I’m Cristiano Siqueira, an illustrator from São Paulo, Brasil and I work exclusively with digital tools, mainly vector. To this website, I bring the most important and most enjoyable projects that I had opportunity to work with during my career.

Before working with illustration, I started my career as graphic designer, working in projects for books, CD covers, magazines and posters. Some years later, I started to work on packaging design, for toys and food industry.
With 6 years professional experience in the graphic design industry, I was able to understand, improve and contribute to more projects where my illustration work was required. So, in 2005, I finally jumped to the illustration world, starting my solo career as illustrator. My first works were related to book projects (covers and internal illustrations), magazines and packaging design. Later, my illustrations were required to advertising, t-shirt design, posters and website projects.

At right, you can see some of the main clients that I have the joy and the opportunity to work with. Soon, I will post some of their thoughts about the work we did.

Cristiano was a pleasure to work with!
His illustrations are of the highest quality, his likenesses are incredibly accurate and his distinctive technique is high energy and perfect for ESPN. His characteristic mark making and understanding of color and composition was just what we were looking for! Our recent assignment was a big one and involved many moving parts. Cristiano was able to negotiate all of them with great professionalism delivering extraordinary sketches and finals on time and on budget. Cristiano’s collaborative process and understanding of work flow made the assignment a breeze and I can’t wait to work with Cristiano again!

ESPN worked with Cristiano on a 33 piece poster collection for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. He brought his unique style and incredible passion to the project from the very first day. Cristiano works faster than any artist we’ve worked with—and doesn’t sacrifice quality at all. He was incredibly responsive to feedback and found a way to make the better with each round of revisions. I highly recommend Cristiano for any creative project and I’d work with him again in a heartbeat.

PRIZES

In 2015, the ESPN Posters for Fifa World Cup Brasil won two great prizes: a Gold at PROMAX BDA AWARDS, in the category Art Direction and Design: Key Art / Poster Campaign and a Bronze at Clio Sports Awards 2015.

In 2011, I received my first international prize from the Clio Awards 2011 in the category “Print: Public Services” for the comic pages done for AIDES, in partnership with Goodby, Silverstein & Partners (San Francisco), a project which means a great deal to me.

All these prizes just crowned the big joy that was the opportunity and challenge to produce these works.
