b. 1986, HK.


I'm Maria Walnut, a portuguese graphic designer and illustrator.

After finishing my studies in Visual Communication in my sunny hometown of Lisbon, I worked at Sagmeister Inc. in New York and after that, lived in Berlin, where I began working as a freelancer as well as collaborating with FUKT Magazine and designer Ariane Spanier. In 2016 I moved to Amsterdam and set up Studio Walnut in the lovely Laurierstraat.

I work with a wide range of clients. From family businesses, to bigger companies, cultural institutions, schools, film directors, and even yoga teachers. They all have in common the wish to give shape to their stories in a simple, personal, and playful way.
