MARGARIDA GIRÃO

Visual Artist

My  studies and professional background have focus on webdesign and for 14 years I had developed sites for clients all over the world: USA, Germany, Jamaica, Israel or Sweden.

In 2012 I moved to São Paulo and worked in editorial and advertising areas either as designer or as illustrator. After, I decided to shake things up and embarked on a new adventure: travelling through South-America, working as a wifi-nomad.

In 2016 I decided to focus only in my visual artist career, which I had been doing as an illustrator. My art has been featured in publications such as WIRED, ADWEEK USA, VOGUE China, Computer Arts to name a few.

In 2013 I created A NEW DAY, a fashion project focused in beautiful illustrations in stylish pieces without neglecting the manufacturing process.

I’m a SOS ANIMAL volunteer and recently I’d joined the portuguese representation of the global movement Fashion Revolution.
