From Brazil, com amor

For Brazilian artist, Gleydson De Lima, Christmas is a great excuse to come together, exchange gifts, and eat lots and lots of food.

When creating this bright and beachy graphic pack, “I was thinking specifically about my family. Here in Brazil, it’s very hard to portray one unique identity because we are a continental culture,” says Gleydson.

“I paid a lot of attention to representing different kinds of bodies and colors. I hope that everybody can recognize themselves in this pack.”

Gleydson’s colourful and cheery graphics are perfect for:

  • Summer festive invites
  • Bright and bold cards
  • Tropical recipes
  • Food or beachwear brands

“I always try and give a bit more character to my graphics, especially to things like typography. If it’s an image of a turkey, then chuck a face on it. Or make it look like it’s dancin,” says Mat.

“It’s well and easy being able to draw a candle or a Christmas pudding, but giving it a bit more character and fun always helps.”

Mat’s fun graphic pack is great for:

  • Zoom backgrounds
  • Bold and quirky cards
  • Instagram Story stickers
