My name is Bruna Souza. I'm a freelance multi-media graphic designer, artist and photographer. I'm from Brazil but I currently live and work in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

I believe that every business's brand identity should reflect who they really are. Many parts should come together to form this whole: brand vision, personality, visual style, voice. I help people tell the story they want to tell with visual language.

No project is too big or small for me to tackle - food styling, logo design, brand strategy. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to know more!

Artist Statement
My work explores the relationship we have as humans to the world around us; how we interact with each other as a society, and how we relate to the contrasts of nature and technology. Coming from a Brazilian and Dutch background, a significant part of my work is influenced by multiculturalism, globalization, and hybrid cultures. I fuse local and global influences to create something from my own unique perspective. Within this subject matter, I explore ideas of infinity, repetition, memory, psychedelia, and the sublime in nature.
Through mixed media, each project I undertake explores a different material or method: video, photography, sculpture, illustration, or multi-media installation. The variety I experiment with also embodies the multiplicity of the world; the abundance of choice and possibility that is sometimes stimulating and at other times overwhelming.
