My name is Alan de Sousa, I’m a designer based in São Paulo, Brazil. Versatile as Cooper Black. From digital to graphic, product, branding, editorial, typography, a bit of motion and any other subject that excites me. For about 10 years I've been working on agencies, companies, design studios and small business. I had my own studio for four years with a partner, which allowed me to evolve my style with complete branding projects from scratch to small businesses, and attend big companies such as LATAM Airlines, C&A and the Brazilian retail seller MARISA. The partnership led us to design for local emergent cool places in São Paulo downtown, such as cafeterias, restaurants and plant shops. Highlight to Bento 43 (2019), a gastronomical occupancy at the balcony of the Brazilian Architecture’s Institute (IAB/SP) that revitalized the use of the historical building; Quadra 27 (2019) the cafeteria that occupied the public sidewalk of Praça das Artes (Art’s Square), and UTOMI (2020), a restaurant and experience space at Belenzinho/SP. From 2020 on I started working as a self-employed, with contractors in Sydney, New York, Berlin and, of course, São Paulo.
