Gabriel Valente Ferrão is a San Francisco based motion graphics designer, animator, and junior art director with 5 years of professional experience, and 11 years of academic training in the fine arts.

A proud immigrant, he was brought to the United states from Brazil (Salvador, Bahia) by his mother, at the age of 11. He was soon enrolled in visual arts programs in the Miami Dade public school system, and was eventually accepted into the prestigious New World School of The Arts. 

Through the merit of his portfolio he was granted several generous scholarships, and given the opportunity to attend and graduate from the world-renowned Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, with a Bachelor in Fine Art (BFA) in Illustration.

He has since worked as a freelance creative in Los Angeles’s advertising industry, and is now working for Apple’s Marketing and Communications (Marcom) division,  where he has the privilege of creating with a purpose.
