Industrial Designer - João Paulo Cunha Melo

39 years old - Brazilian 

Industrial designer graduated from Belas Artes de São Paulo in 2006.
After college, as usually happens with recently graduated students, I started to work as freelance knowledge for design companies to gain and increase a network area. During this period I worked with companies related to automotive and nautical projects.
In 2008, I start work at the Fiat design center in Brazil, the only studio outside Italy. I worked in the visualization design area, a team won a lot of space within the company due to the quality of the materials and ideas that are at their disposal so I was appointed Head of Visualization Design.
Searching for new horizons I had the opportunity to move to the south of Brazil, where the Marcopolo S / A bus factory, one of the largest bus groups in the world, proposed work on the creation and development of new products. Besides that I have a start up in the fitness equipment business where our differential is the design in the product line.
After eight years working with bus design I'm back working with automobiles, in the Renault America Latin America design team as a 3D modeler and visualization designer.
