Beyond Zine

Art Direction & Editorial Design

This Zine was born during my trip to the Açores. Exploring the island felt like having a conversation with nature. The trees, the lake, the coast, the leaves, all seemed to reveal lessons that I would record in my journal daily as I traveled. 

Oedipus

Graphic Design & Illustration

I had the privilege of working at Amsterdam-based Brewery Oedipus and being part of so many amazing projects. Dive in into their colourful world and see what I did for them!

Time (Pt.1)

Art Direction & Editorial Design

This project is a visual representation of my journey through understanding the concept of time. Using code and the software Processing, I created four forms that represent the four ideas that played the most pivotal role in my exploration of time: measurement, philosophy, art, and design. 

Anatomy of a Feminist: The Game!

Art Direction & Editorial Design

To discover more about the feminist body and what makes it tick, we broke down the primary organs, which in a feminist’s body are much larger than normal, and the reasons they’ve been activated so often. 

Between The Lines

Editorial design & Illustration

A surfboard story: every surfboard has its own story.  We live different adventures even if we are in the same place. These surfboards area diary of some surfer’s personal adventures.

Lick Me!

Graphic Design

Have you ever felt the urge to lick something you knew wasn’t edible? I created this project to unpack that semiotic impulse to find the forms that most strongly trigger the impulse to lick.

Before the Waves

Editorial Design & Art Direction

Before The Wave is a magazine that explores the connection between surfing, design, and religion.

Surf Posters

Graphic Design

From the project Before the Waves you can find here, the surf posters & the booklet with illustrated surf rules that complete the magazine.

Bacteria World

Graphic Design

For this project, I challenged myself to create oddly enticing visualizations of unenticing subjects, beginning with plant diseases. Each poster represents a different plant disease.

Poster Exhibition

Graphic Design & AR

I was asked to create the poster for my design academy’s final degree show  a show where first year, second year and third year students exhibit their work side by side.

Break the X

Editorial Design & Illustration

Growing up, the children’s books I read taught me that certain sports, like football, were for boys, and others, like gymnastics, were for girls. I created this children’s book to break these gender stereotypes and show young girls that they can play any sport they want.

Maptraits

Social Design & Graphic Design

A community portrait, a disruptive landscape of humanity, which aims to re-engage people with places.

Dancing Houses

Illustration & Animation

Dancing houses is an animation project I created in quarantine. In certain moments the houses,  appeared to dance with all the new life inside of them. 

Robsie Concert Artwork

Illustration & Brand Identity

I created this artwork for American band Robsie’s concert at the Empire Control Room in Austin, Texas. The concert has been postponed due to COVID-19, but I look forward to updating these pieces and getting them out on the streets as soon as the dates are rescheduled.

Robsie Brand Identity

Brand Identity & illustration

I developed a new visual concept for the amazing Robsie band in Austin, Texas. The eye is the main symbol, it changes because it symbolizes their band changing through the years. Also, I had the honor to translate Robsie’s beautiful voice and lyrics into a visual concept for the release of their new songs.

Alphabet

Illustration

Dyslexia has given me a unique relationship with the alphabet. This alphabet is a celebration of the unique way my brain plays with letters.

Illustration

These are a series of illustrations that I have been doing in quarantine. Some became posters, t-shirts, and other fun objects.

Quarantine Posters

Illustration & graphic design

In quarantine, I piloted an experimental concept: drawing meditations. Every Sunday, I lead a new drawing meditation aimed to open those who don’t draw on a daily basis or think aren’t good at it up to the world of drawing. I created these posters to promote the experiment.

Capricho Café Mural & Exhibition

Live painting & illustration

I illustrated this custom mural for Capricho Cafe in Amsterdam, in December 2019. Capricho Cafe and I, also came up with a concept for an Exhibition called “Mindful Outlook” in June 2020

Time (Pt.2)

Live Painting & Performance

In this exploration of time, the second piece in my time series, I will leave behind the digital representation I created in my first piece to begin a new journey and explore a different experience of it. Through drawing lines, elements and symbols I will explore an alternative reality where time seems to stand still while the world keeps on going.

I-Motions

Illustration

This project is a study of the connection between eyes and emotions. It began with a simple hypothesis: emotions are energy in motion. 

WorlSurfCamp Mural

During my summer travel in Spain, I got commissioned to paint the whole WorldSurfcamp in La Coruña.
