About

We are a graphic design studio based in Porto and specializing in projects for the cultural field, particularly in book design and visual identities, and covering a wide range of formats in the print and digital media. Our approach tends to prioritizing content over a personal stylistic signature, where conversation and exchange play a crucial role in the final result. Typography is a major tool in the development of each project.

Maria João Macedo iniciated her practice in 2008, after a degree in Communication Design and a Master in Editorial Design at Porto’s Faculty of Fine Arts. She is a founding member of Sismógrafo, an art space in Porto, devoted to visual arts, cinema, improvised music, literature and thought. The activity of this collective can be defined by their critical engagement towards contemporary culture. Since 2009, she is part of the european network Use-it Maps for Young Travellers and has been doing cartography and co-editing these publications for several Portuguese cities. She teaches Book design and Identity at Lisbon School of Design since 2016.
