curriculum vitae

“Born in Rio de Janeiro, Marcelo (Marc Vaz) Peixoto grew between the USA and Europe, from where he has influence and roots, and where he initiated his studies and professional experience. (…) His sensorial awareness for visual arts channeled to studies in Architecture, and later in Photography, while developing early collaborations with art magazines. A path which led to his passion for Design, and acquired skills for editorial and branding, and rapidly evolved knowledge and experience through the frequent collaborations with European, North American and Japanese architecture, design and photography studios. (…) His highly developed design skills lead to collaborations with several European and South American publishers, world class luxury hotels and European art studios, where many describe Marc as very disciplined and efficient, creatively pragmatic and with a deep minimalistic sensitivity.”
