Olá! I'm Mar, a graphic designer and illustrator born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal. I am a creative with a passion for bold and vibrant colours, interested in exploring the worlds of branding, editorial design, and illustration. My work is heavily inspired by cultural identity, human behaviour, and memory-making, exploring how these play a crucial role in shaping the present and influencing the future. As an inquisitive individual, I use design as a way to interpret and make sense of the world around me. I believe the best designs are personal, concept-driven, and have the ability to move people. I enjoy challenging pre-conceived notions of branding and editorial design, and exploring how I can play with them in order to convey a concept uniquely. I am also an avid collector of trinkets, old books and dusty things, and going to a flea market always inspires me.
