Go Nerd, Antonio Brazil is a graphic designer, web designer, web developer, sketch artist, musician, film maker and Macintosh pro – and now Director of GO Nerd services for Go Go Me. Growing up in a family of printers and musicians, he was pre destined to follow in his family’s footsteps. Antonio started drawing at a very young age, and started by working in his father’s printing company as a teenager. There, Antonio learned to apply his artistic skills to the printing trade as he learned everything from 4-color process and spot-color printing to graphic design and typography to client management.
In 1996, in response to shifting industry needs, Antonio started an independent web design company called Karma Ink!®. He was then hired in 2000 by the president of LeAnn Rimes’ fan club (and his current friend and business partner), Rendee Bullard to redesign LeAnn’s fanzine. He soon took over redesigning and then managing LeAnn’s official website. In his four years as webmaster, Antonio won three awards for “Top Entertainment Website” by the BBC and an award for Design Excellence from Sony Japan. He was commissioned by Carlos Santana’s management team to submit artwork for consideration. Antonio’s work has also been featured in Country Weekly Magazine and on Entertainment Tonight.
Now, as Director of GO Nerd, Antonio is excited to be working with such an elite group and providing the best technology and creative services out there.
