My name is Mariana and I am a Portuguese graphic designer based in London.

My work spans a multitude of disciplines, from branding, editorial, advertising, signage and packaging to web and digital design.

For me, life is better when you appreciate all the little things it offers you. It is not a question of seeing the glass as ‘half full’, but of seeing it as a beautiful glass. 

‘Every little thing matters’ is the mantra for all the work I create. I believe that only through attention to detail, dedication and hard work are we able to make all the little, but very important, things stand out.

I am always on the lookout for new and exciting work and collaborations that will challenge me into pursuing different design approaches, taking me out of my comfort zone.
