Balaio is a house of making books: a small picturebook publisher and an editorial project producer. We believe that each book has its own particular world, with its narrative, aesthetic and, materiality. Therefore every project is carefully thought with dedication and importance. We’re from São Paulo’s State inland, so we carry with us all the serenity and, nice chat. That’s how Balaio was born, amongst many cups of coffee, book conversations and Filipe’s childhood memories surrounded by the wicker baskets that his grandfather Augusto made.
Filipe Miranda and Mariana Rodrigues are Balaio’s founding partners. He’s graduated in visual arts, makes animations, and is tech-savvy. She’s graduated in journalism, proofreads, and studies editorial design. They’re great friends for life and projects.
