Hello! I am Silas Klein and I work in two completely different worlds.
First, I'm an Art Director and Designer. I really enjoy creating brands, campaigns, interactive experiences and everything connected with creativity (I even write some personal stuff). In my 14 years of work,I've already created for great brands, such as Blackberry; Bradesco; Caixa Econômica; Coca-Cola; CVC; GM; GJP Hotels; SEB (Arno, Rochedo, Panex); Habib's; Natura; Rio 2016; etc.
On the other side, I'm a PhD student of Sciences of Religion. I love to research Ancient Languages, Archaeology, Ritual Behavior, Ancient Near Eastern Iconography and the impact of materiality and visuality in the religious life of ancient folk. In these (few) years in the academic world, I published a dozen articles (→) and a book (→), where I discuss problems with the interpretation of sacred texts.
Besides that, over the years, I developed a profound need of creating with meaning and impact. I try to do that with "Solidum: The Cause Collective" (→). In this project, my friend Kaio and I gather creatives of various disciplines to work for social good. Step by step we are trying to make the future brighter!
Today, my time is divided between these two passions. I teach, research, draw, create, and try to add a pinch of meaning in all of that. And, in the meantime, I freelance for the sake of beauty in this world.
So, if you want to chat (or hire me!),
