besides those typical logo projects, websites, character designs, packaging graphics and stands, a creative person still have to find the strength, time and will to draw a few children’s books. “Eu hoje faço anos” (“Today is my birthday”) is my latest work and is already on sale in portuguese bookstores. In practice the books are two different kinds (but equal): there is a boy and girl version. You must choose the most suitable. Or both! Edited by Bertrand, this is another book/cd by Constroisons. Illustrated by me, with poems by Ines Pupo and music by Gonçalo Pratas. Check Bertrand’s online store: http://goo.gl/ADSPl
Audi Canada has come up with an unexpected surprise in the Royal Bank Plaza, Toronto. Within a container was built a giant racetrack with small Audi replicas that could be controlled via iPad. It was not only the technical marvel of miniature cameras, the scenarios or 3D printing of each car that impressed me. What really caught my attention was the story behind the construction of the racetrack. "Painting Coconuts" is a short film showing behind the scenes of the project. Really worth seeing.

Ego travel identity project. This was a project that lasted for the past few months and resulted in this travel agency’s Corporate Identity and consequent website graphics. Check my Behance page for full project.
Tipo de letra “Afgan”.
Coloquei disponível para download o ficheiro vectorial do design tipográfico da letra “Afgan”. Originalmente, o design foi criado para um trabalho interno do Instituto do Ambiente, no qual frases com mensagens ecológicas eram impressas em toalhetes de mesa. A família estava incompleta e agora foi acabada num ficheiro vectorial. A letra serve principalmente para títulos, logos e frases curtas. A composição tem de ser feita de modo manual dado que não é um ficheiro tipográfico instalável. Existe também um pdf com alguns exemplos de aplicações. Partilhem e divulguem à vontade. Se usarem a letra, enviem-me imagens! obrigado. Download gratuito aqui.
"Afgan" type design.
Now available for download the vector file of my type design “Afgan”. Originally, this type design was created for an internal work of the Institute of the Environment, in Portugal, in which sentences with ecological messages were printed on table cloths. The type family was incomplete and was now finished in a .ai vector file. "Afgan" type was originally designed for headings, logos and short phrases. The composition must be done in manual mode because there is no installable typeface file. There is also a pdf with examples of applications. Share and disseminate at will. If you use the letter, please send me some previews! Thanks. Download it here for free.
