Meet Felipe Mandiola — The Pioneer Of Graphic Design Services For The eSports Industry.

Meet Felipe Mandiola — aka “Icarus Mind”

From grinding on online forums when he was 16 to working with professional eSports athletes in only the space of 2 years — Felipe Mandiola is one graphic designer to keep an eye out for in 2020.

I recently came across Felipe Mandiola, also known as “Icarus Mind” through Twitter, and I was so impressed by his designs that I had to give him an interview.

Felipe hails from Chile, and is a self-taught graphic designer specializing in bespoke logo design for eSports athletes worldwide.

At just 18 years old — Felipe has been hired and has created designs for some of the most famous & influential people in the eSports industry. From working with FaZe Mew, Scoped and UMG to just name a few; Felipe is slowly making himself known an industry that doesn’t take much notice to young freelancers. I can’t wait to see what Felipe has planned for the near future as his business and the eSports industry grow exponentially in 2020.

I also interviewed Felipe about his graphic design journey, here’s what we spoke about:

When did you start having a passion for Graphic Design?

How does it feel knowing that you’ve successfully broken into the eSports Industry with your skills and have worked with eSports athletes?

Walk me through your portfolio. Which pieces are you most proud of, and why?

I’m also very proud of the logo I created for Scoped, as he’s moved onto to become a professional eSport athlete in the Fortnite industry and has amassed over 300,000 subscribers on YouTube. It’s crazy to think that I’m apart of his branding strategy on social media. It’s even more crazy to think that I allowed this to happen… Imagine if I never helped my mom and sister, where would I be now? Life’s full of opportunities — I’m just glad that I’ve taken all of mine.“

Where do you see yourself in 3 years from now?
