I'm Maria WaInut a Portuguese freelance graphic designer, illustrator and animator. I've worked in New York at Sagmeister Inc. and lived in Berlin for 5 years before moving to Amsterdam in 2016.
As a designer
I love to create corporate identities, design books and all types of printed media, create tactile expressions of a brand.
As an illustrator and animator I love to give life to ideas in a friendly way. I create characters, illustrate for magazines and illustrate books.
I look for simple, playful expressions of complex ideas and try to make work that feels human, spontaneous and friendly as well as strong and effective in the way it communicates.
I work with small and bigger clients: from advertising agencies, organic beauty brands, to family-run businesses, non profit organisations, or museums. The very ecletic list of clients include: HEMA, Fine, Johan Kramer, Amsterdam Economic Bord, Happy Kamping, Mono.Kultur, de Domijnen, Kranenburgh Museum, Merlijn Twalfhoven, O'Wonder, Mr. & Mrs. Lane, Strategyzer.
My work has been featured on publications such as Los Logos 8 (2017) and I'm a member of the ADCN. I've been in the jury for Illustration and Typography for the ADCN Awards.
