Black Frame, the public relations and consulting agency headed by Brian Phillips, is expanding its operations to Brazil. An office based in the Sao Conrado area of Rio De Janeiro opened earlier this month. Juliana Ribeiro, a vice president at Black Frame, is leading the regional office. Originally from Rio, she joined the firm in 2006 and will split her time between New York and Brazil, assisting existing clients with South American projects, and building a local client base.
Black Frame’s current client roster includes Rodarte, Nike, Opening Ceremony, The Standard and Yabu Pushelberg. One the first projects out of Black Frame’s Brazilian office is Francesco Vezzoli’s solo exhibition opening at the Oscar Neimeyer-designed Oca center in São Paulo in late August 2016. The exhibition design will be created by Zaha Hadid and will coincide with the São Paulo Biennial.
This is a great example of the type of projects we hope to do more of and an exciting time to be focusing on Brazil leading up to the Olympics,” said Phillips. “We will be working across different disciplines in Rio as we do in New York.”
