74 – Revolution

This project is conducted within our master’s degree at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Porto – FBAUP for the Course of Advanced Studies in Design Editorial, guided by professors João Martino and Miguel Almeida.
Between 1933 and 1974, Portugal was ruled by a Fascist and Totalitarian regime. Until 1970, António Oliveira Salazar met itself complete mastery of all state powers. “The fascist dictatorship created a totalitarian state and a monstrous police apparatus of espionage and repression policies which operated in all sectors of national life, depriving the Portuguese people the most basic rights and freedoms. The history of dictatorship is a story of persecution, arrests, torture, convictions of murders of those who dared to defend the rights of the people, protest, fight for freedom and better living conditions and work.”
This project aims to show an existing panorama during the Estado Novo period, highlighting all the revolutionary events leading up to the day of April 25 in Portugal. All documents present in the project were fully used only in an academic context and research.

Portuguese Sayings – Fanzine

coisa está preta is an academic project that begun in an illustration class. The aim of this project was to create a fanzine that consisted in a personal publication about a particular theme related to Rituals
The format of this work was DIN A5 and we were free to chose the support and materials. In my Zine I have decided to use the theme of Life Style, and I chose to illustrate typical Portuguese Sayings that were related with food such as: “Bread, Bread, Cheese, Cheese”, “This is for filling sausages”, “Grain by grain the chicken fills her belly”, “You are done to the steak” and some more… Due to the theme my publication uses a certain illustration style that is very plastic and expressive and from my view it gives a dynamic reading system, that is also based on visual rhythm and that relates image with editorial.

I am a lot of things

The main goal of this book was to tell a story, my personal story, as so I decided to add 7 different chapters in which I would tell my story from a different point of view. With this I pretended to show that every story that happened in my life influenced who I am, not only as a person but also as a designer. Each chapter is completely different and show the things that add more value at a certain period of time, since the moment I found the image for the first time until my present influences.
I believe all of these moments make who I am today and I found this chapter division the best way to represent the process of growing up. In my book I am a story teller and I make a bridge between who I was and who I am as if I was representing what I have learned by showing how it affects me today.

Tribute exercise to Edouard Boubat and Helmut Newton. The main goal was to work with 2 oposite personalities and create for each one a narrative that could somehow express who they are and their point of view. In this project you can see 2 different designs and one of them represents the order / regular / rules and the other the disorder / irregular / no-rules.
