Felipe Rocha, founder and creative director at PORTO ROCHA

I’m a Brazilian designer and creative director based in New York. I began my career in 2008 and have since worked across different realms of design including branding, experiential, editorial, digital and advertising. I have created culturally driven work for global brands such as Snapchat, Airbnb and most recently Spotify, where I led the design of new brand initiatives and major artist collaborations. My past experiences also include working as Senior Designer at Sagmeister & Walsh; co-founding Arnold, a graphic design studio in São Paulo; and completing a residency at Fabrica, Benetton’s creative laboratory in Italy where I worked on the iconic COLORS Magazine.

POLLEN

POLLEN is a Spotify playlist built to expose and support the best new art. With a truly multi-genre, inclusive perspective, the POLLEN playlist is committed  to programming music that is at the leading edge of popular and the underground. 

The idea behind the name POLLEN comes from the world of plants and flowers. Like a bouquet of wildflowers, the playlist is a collection of unique artists. Visually we were inspired by Matisse cutouts.



  
You should listen and follow it on Spotify :)
