About me

I'm João Miranda, a Portuguese “Jack-of-all-trades, master of some” based in Brixton, London. I can go from art direction to design with a stylish jump on lettering and illustration. But where you can really explore my magic is in branding. In the past 7 years, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some great agencies and studios, while freelancing and sharing great conversations with clients. Previously at Pentagram, BBC Creative, Fold7, Kastner, Livity and LittleHawk.
