Danilo’s roots stem from the vibrant cultures of Brazil and Italy. He is a true artist, and the original mastermind behind Let_it_grow. His magical methods of creative infusion have earned him the reputation of a mythological creature. Perhaps a unicorn. Around here, he’s known as “The Phantom”.

Danilo has shared his abundant creativity with well-known Brazilian agencies such as Brandgroup, Oz Design, Mood and AlmapBBDO. In 2003 he moved to Italy to work at Alessi, one of the greatest design companies in the world. He also collaborated with Stefano Giovannoni and worked for Piero Lissoni at Lissoni Associati. After returning to Brazil, he joined A10 Design as Creative Director.

His portfolio includes projects with Ambev-ImBev, Coca-Cola, Danone, Wella, Arcor, Gatorade, Fondazione Benetton, Daimler-Crysler, Cassina, Porro, Rosset, Coteminas, Unilever, Kraft Foods, Brasil Kirin, UNDP, Dr. Oetker, Marella Gallery, Hope (Gisele Bündchen) and scores of others.

In 2004, with a grand vision of developing more creative environments around the world, Danilo founded Let_it_grow as his ultimate inspired endeavor.
