Studio Maria Walnut


b. 1986, HK.


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.

In my work, I look for simple, playful expressions of complex ideas and try to make my work spontaneous and personal as well as relatable and universal. I love to design for printed, branding, stop motion and to scan millions of drawings on crappy A4 paper. I work with small and bigger clients: from advertising agencies, organic beauty brands, to family-run businesses, non profit organisations, or museums.

I often collaborate with dutch director Johan Kramer and am currently working on my second children’s book and compulsively reading about neurosciences.
