Graphic design studio created in 2016 by Portuguese designers Luísa Martelo and Mariana Santiago, currently based between Porto and London. Bringing a strong conceptual approach and a close collaborative spirit to each project, our scope of work ranges from corporate identities, to printed communication and exhibition design. The practice is motivated by an interest in society, extending the design language beyond a service based work.
Anuário is an initiative of reflective analysis of curatorial and artistic practices in Porto during a one year period. Developed by a group of five curators, it documents the best independent artistic projects presented in the city throughout 2018.
