Rafael Dante is Design Lead at Media.Monks and a member of the Awwwards Jury Panel. For over 15 years, he’s been crafting a wide range of digital experiences for niche audiences in the entertainment industry, leading the way in art direction, interactive design, 3D production, UX, and illustration.

A São Paulo native, Dante moved to California 10 years ago to expand his creative horizons and develop his art both independently and in collaboration with some of the world’s biggest brands. He’s a comic book geek, and strives to balance great storytelling with stunning visuals—whether he’s working on a microsite, a video game or a VR experience.

When he’s not creating and sharing art on the internet, you may find him painting murals in his friends’ children’s bedrooms.
