Portuguese graphic designer born in France. I did Erasmus in Ghent - Belgium, at LUCA School of Arts, and I obtained my bachelor diploma from the communication design department of Superior School of Arts & Design in Porto, Portugal. Then I went to FBAUP - University of Porto where I started the master in Graphic Design and Editorial Projects. Meanwhile, I founded my own studio - Up Studio - as a freelancer in a huge and powerful multidisciplinary collective called We Came From Space. After one year in the collective, I moved on to be fully independent and to fight hard between others sharks! In those few years, I gave some workshops from branding to letterpress, I dealed with nacional and international interns, with clients as Sony Music Entertainement, Livraria Lello & Irmãos, a city hall, and so much more, can you imagine?! I ended up working in Belgium and then in Malta - in a branding agency. My last experience was in a small creative studio from Poland. Now I came back to Belgium but I can often be found in different corners of Europe while “travelinspiration”.
