ABOUT

Hello, my name is Nuno Pinto da Cruz. I hold a Master Degree in Communication Design in ESAD (Porto, Portugal) and a Master Degree in Art in ESA (Lorient, France). After my studies I moved to Brussels, where I worked in an communication agency for an year.

After becoming a freelancer in 2009 I have developed a wide range of clients in Brussels, Paris or Berlin.

My motto is to find the right visual communication strategy for each project. Being a passionate for creative problem solving, I use my knowledge to turn the requirements of each client into striking, unique and effective designs.

My expertise range from art direction to graphic design, communication, semiology, typography and illustration, conceiving visual identities as well as design & layout for both print and web. I strive to give a project its own voice and, if possible, to make things that surround us more beautiful.

I'm also active as an artist and author, with an endless curiosity for the vast world.
