︎  About
Hi! Oi! My name is Gabriel Moniz, but some people call me just Moniz. I'm a Brazilian creative with a background in art direction & design. I was born (1999) and raised in Maranhão, located in the Northeast of Brazil, and now I live and work in São Paulo.

I started my career going through ad agencies like AlmapBBDO, Africa DDB, Energy BBDO and Crispin Porter + Bogusky.  I’m currently working as Art Director at Energy BBDO. Also, I’m a Co-Founder of SINA, a independent creative studio.

Also, in 2021 I won the 1st place at Cannes Young Lions Live Award, and in 2019 I had the pleasure of being named by the NGO Papel & Caneta, one of the 30 voices who fought to change the communication industry.

I’m very passionate about design (in all its forms), creativity, sports, games, photography, sneakers, music and in short: everything that is entertainment.

Feel free to get in touch to more info, make a collab, opportunities or just a chat.
