“Folguedo” means a popular festivity, in Brazil. The word brings together the ideas of acknowledgement and interconnections and shows that notions like learning, having fun, creating and sharing go together.

This is the leading concept of our activities. Since 2005 we work with education, culture, art and science, creating innovative and accessible experiences that join expography, scenography, design, technology and creative content.

We have developed more than 60 projects for exhibitions, actions, events, festivals, museums, brands, websites, signage and space humanization. Our studio covers the whole workflow from the conception to the final product, wether in our own projects or in partnership with the client.

Only our enthusiasm for the next project is bigger than our trajectory!

Claudia é branca e tem o cabelo curto, ondulado e grisalho, veste um agasalho vermelho com ziper.

Claudia Alencar

Claudia has been close to art since she lived amidst the filmrolls, cameras and projectors of her grandfather. Many movies, books, trips, shows and museums inspired her and turned her into an open, versatile and daring production designer. Scenography offered her the ideal place to cultivate and share her interest for the arts. In this position she was able to transit through several areas, languages and subjects. After 25 years as a set designer for TV Globo, Claudia realized that educational, scientific and corporate projects can have a more artistic and funny look, and so she created Folguedo.
