In 2012 in the northeaster city of Natal, André Gurgel and Felipe Bezerra decided to unite their creative talents to found the Mula Preta design studio. André Gurgel is a product designer specializing in CGI and product visualization, born in Natal in 1988, and is ahead of his technology company Synco. Felipe Bezerra, also from Natal, is an architect graduated from UFRN and owns the Felipe Bezerra Arquitetos office since 2000 and is now a partner of Ema architecture office (Escritório Metropolitano de Arquitetura).
The name of the studio, Mula Preta, is inspired by the homonymous song by the King of Baião (musical genre), Luiz Gonzaga, who was one of the most complete, important, and inventive figures in Brazilian popular music. It represents the Northeastern culture and brings the irreverence of the region to its signature. The studio participated in international exhibitions and collected several awards around the world ever since.
