About me
Hello, I’m Margarida. I’m a Visual Designer originally from Portugal but living in London. I am a fan of travelling, beautiful design and movies. Previously I lived in Barcelona where I studied design and communication, typography and worked at Mecal short film festival and slowly started with my first steps in the digital world.
