Jake Brussel Faria,

Handmade websites, refurbished graphics and visuals for all occasions. New York, he/him, b. 1996, immortal until I die.

I currently work as a designer and developer at Virtually Real, a small, multi-disciplinary agency in sunny Brooklyn, NY (though right now I’m working out of my bedroom). There, I’ve had the good fortune to contribute to projects for clients like Lauryn Hill, Public Records, Genius and Dims. I’ve also recently been studying typeface design at Cooper Union.

On this site you can find an informal, regularly updated archive of my work. If you’d prefer it’s also available on Are.na (they’re the same, promise). A more complete portfolio is available on request.

If you’re interested in my work or working with me reach out at jake@jakebf.com. You can also find me on Instagram, Are.na and Twitter

I'm a big fan of this diagram. I've come across it many times, but have never been able to track down its source. This is my homage to the still anonymous original.

Update: Samantha Seurynck Griffith found it! The original is a patent diagram for a search engine.
