A. Marta Ferreira here! Freelance graphic designer, print lover, type enthusiast & proud geek.
I graduated in Communication Design from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Lisbon in 2008. Fresh out of college, I applied and improved my skills in a design agency called Way, and then moved on to a design studio, Magnésio.
I am now a full-time freelance graphic designer and art-director working for clients from all over the world.
I’ve also dedicated my time to self-initiated projects, from which I highlight the independent publication Rapture – the written word issue, presented at Experimenta Design 2011 and awarded a Jovens Criadores Award in the category of Graphic Design. Or the publication A book on books, an antecedent of my MA thesis.
I’ve enjoyed seeing my work featured in exhibitions and publications such as the AntiDesign Festival, London, the Black and White Audiovisual Festival, in Pica Magazine, Montreal, or the Design and Design Book of the Year.
I’ve also had the pleasure of presenting my work at places like 6et and 7et – Typography Meetings, Pecha Kucha Night, Portugal 2036 or in the TV show É a vida Alvim (link).
I believe the creative mind must be constantly fed with experiences and experimentation. In my free time I love to dabble with movable type, calligraphy, lettering, and printing techniques.
Following these passions, in 2017 I finished an MA in Typography and Editorial Contemporary Practices where the final project was a contemporary book that presents old, historic books.
