Studio MW
Creative boutique for Empathic Humans and a more Compassionate Society.



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. 

I mostly 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 a wide range of clients from advertising agencies, organic beauty brands, to family-run businesses, non profit organisations, or art institutions.
