Batidas proposes a new visual identity system for the Brazilian banknotes. It is in moments of questioning and transition, where the transformation role of design comes in. Batidas is a project in search of the Brazilian essence, of what identifies and unites us as people and nation. Here, the Batidas are from the northeast to the south, from samba to funk.

Based on a personal graphic interpretation of one of the main iconographic elements of a nation, with a focus towards more subjective aspects of the country and a thematic that embraces the experimentation process, Batidas's challenge was to become a new representative figure of the Brazilian identity.

Rhythm, the guiding theme of the project, is multiple, timeless, and democratic. From the Greek rhuthmós: What flows, moves, has constant motion. Brazil has its own pulse: composed of diverse beats, which interact and mix. In our country, I believe that the pace of life blends with music - which is our word, our swing, our soul. And, just like its people, it comes from the mixture.

Colorful and dynamic, the project pays tribute to 10 musical rhythms, from different parts and contexts of Brazil. Color palette connects to each rhythm, and graphics are based on the outline of the regions’s map. Safety marks allude to our flag.

Batidas is featured on the 2017 Brazilian Design Biennial, as well as 2017 Rio de Janeiro's Design Week.
