Hello! Nice to meet you!


My name is Mariana Falvo and I am a Production Designer based in São Paulo. 


As a visual creator, I developed my aesthetics through practice, technique, determination and intuition. Colors, stories, patterns and psychology are my passions. 


I have a degree in Cinema and Interior Design and I began working in the film industry in 2008 as a costume intern for commercials. The next year, I worked as a film script treatment assistant at Pródigo Filmes.


In 2010 I became a freelancer working for various production designers. From then on, I worked for 8 years as an assistant art director and set designer for important names in advertising and content production, such as: TV Globo, O2 Filmes, Paris Filmes, Black Maria, Coração da Selva, Paranoid, Mixer, among others.


“Turma da Mônica Laços”, in 2018, was my first project as a Production Designer. It earned me two award nominations: ABC 2020 Award and 19th Brazilian Cinema 2020 Grand Prix.


In 2022 I won the Best Art Direction Award at the Guarani Brazilian Cinema Awards, and in 2023 I was awarded the Best Art Direction for TV Show in the ABC Cinematography Award. 


I believe that the creative process should be collective, loving and fun.
