Born in Porto, Portugal. I attended a Master in Architecture at FAUP and a Bachelor (BA) in Communication Design at ESAD followed by a Master of Arts (MA) in Typeface Design at the University of Reading, UK.
I work as a freelance type designer focusing on type design. I design my own typefaces and custom typefaces for identity or editorial purposes. I am always looking forward for the next exciting type collaboration.
I give and organize workshops in type design and lettering to share my love for letterforms.
I work internationally and I am based in the beautiful city of Porto, Portugal.
If you want to comission work, lecture or arrange a workshop send me an email.
