Thiago Maia

Cookie Studio

Thiago was born in the concrete jungles of São Paulo, Brazil. A naughty young monkey keen to explore his surroundings and learn new skills.

His mother discovered he had a flair for design, so stole a Macintosh from some tourists and gave it to him, from which he learnt all about animation and design.

After learning to behave like a human, he managed to find a job in design and worked in Brazil for 3 years. Then one day he managed to stow away on a boat to London, England, ready to explore this new jungle and peruse his new life and career.

Today he is the Founder and Creative Director of Cookie Studio and co-founder of See No Evil, but no one noticed he is, in fact, a monkey.
