A LITTLE ABOUT Ivan Lima Design

8 years of branding, web and art direction experience. Independent consultant for brands like the Golden State Warriors, Adidas, and Oaklandish apparel company.

You could say that Ivan Lima Design took flight back in 1982, when he was just a young boy living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He was initially exposed to art by his grandmother, an artist herself, where growing up she taught him to appreciate the rich culture and creativity that surrounded him. Graffiti scattered about on city walls, murals painted on sides of buildings, and arts fairs on every corner were just some of the influences that inspired his creativity from a very early age.

Years later, Ivan went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology living in Charleston, South Carolina. Although Ivan had expressed a strong interest in psychology, he never lost touch with his artistic roots; after several years working in the mental health field, the creative itch finally got the best of him. He decided to return to his first passion, and began his endeavor in the graphic design world. It was a rekindled love. In 2007, Ivan founded Ivan Lima Design. He began designing independently throughout the Bay Area, and continues to forge new partnerships within the industry.

Ivan Lima has consulted for several brands in the Bay Area, CA and now in Charleston, SC. Most recently serving as Art Director for Oaklandish, and Creative Director for Bespoke Group.

Great design is the winning formula for any brand. It begins with a great concept; but great design cannot take shape without the sum of its parts moving together creatively. Collaboration becomes the major asset to any vision. Without it, the entire work will look and feel disjointed and not one vision will come to light with integrity.
