      WHAT PLEASURE DOES
      DESIGN GIVE?

      When the intelligent solution meets the beautiful form, when the meaning is expressed through the sensation, it is then that the experience of pleasure starts – a dual effect pleasure, as it feeds reasoning and causes emotion.

      At Oz, the magical ingredient that gives meaning to all we do is pleasure. The pleasure we have in pursuing the best solutions to the various natures of challenges posed to us. Each project is received as a “clear puzzle” to be deciphered and refined, in content and form, through the exercise of our original vocation. We are thinkers and we are designers, and we derive pleasure from combining those dimensions in a collective creation format that qualifies the result and promotes the interaction that brings people closer to their dreams.

      Together – team, client and audience, we seek the design of the world that brings pleasure in seeing and joy of living./p>

      What pleasure Design gives!

      GROUNDED
      CRIATIVITY

      What, or whom, does a Strategy (strategy = “a mature person’s thing”) and Design (design = “a young person’s thing”) Consultancy with 33 years’ experience (experience = “a mature person’s thing”) serve, at times in which the prevailing bias is the overvaluation of youth as an expression of creativity (creativity= “a young person’s thing”), on account of the times of technology, Internet, social media, Facebook, blogs, etc. (technology = “a young person’s thing”), but in which major brands, with great challenges, feel that the responsibility for deciding and acting under a holistic and grounded vision requires creativity, but also baggage and repertories that are only amassed through practice, study, time and knowledge (knowledge = “a mature person’s thing”)?

      That is what Oz was designed for, a company that combines the values of acquired experience to the restlessness of the innovative spirit, bringing together a senior team of professionals, passionate about what they have been doing for long, with a team of restless youths, who are identified, chosen and trained to expand their original potential through monitored practice, fostered by the experienced amassed over time.

      A LONG-LASTING
      MARRIAGE

      There are those who are surprised by the fact that André, Giovanni and Ronald have been together for more than 30 years. After all, they studied architecture together at FAU, there they identified their kinship, values and interests and, after graduating, founded Oz to combine each one’s traits to the common value to all: the will to create a company in which Design could be practiced in a collaborative and entrepreneurial format, seeking to foster teamwork as a principle for quality and each associate’s individuality as a means to enrich the group and the results.

      “They are very different”, muse clients and new associates – and it is just this aspect that, paradoxically, puzzles and explains.

      Many have been the challenges along this long journey, lots of “couple’s therapy”, and what today is the greatest value and asset, for being rare, is the capacity to debate and decide for the greater good: a friendship relationship that turns into respect, appreciation and destiny.

      RONALD KAPAZ < back

      Ronald Kapaz was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1956. As all children, he started sketching at 4 but, contrary to most, never stopped… From the instinct-driven drawing at the start of his career (1959) – sheer color, movement and energy – evolved and treaded the various nuances of design: the pursuit of the form, the control of the hand, the beauty in harmony, the emotion of colors, the lighting intensity, the education of the regard, etc.

      He studied architecture, thinking his call was to design houses, and the several encounters in life shaped his path until he became a Graphic Designer. He then realized the true complexity and magic of “designing”. Today, main designer at Oz Design, which he co-founded in 1979, goes on refining the use of lines, shapes and colors. And as senior corporate identity strategist with Oz Branding, uses words and his broad perspective to design points in rationales, action plans, identity concepts and views on the world.
