I am a dedicated, organized and enthusiastic Master’s student, seeking a job in a design studio or arts organisation, in which I can apply my academic knowledge but also learn from new experiences and be able to develop professionally.
Ministry of Nomads is an international art agency which represents both emerging and established artists mainly from Latin America. In this agency I worked as an intern, assisting the director in daily tasks. I managed the correspondence with artists, worked on budgets for potential exhibitions and did research on new artists. I also worked on the production of catalogues, as well as on the merchandise products of the agency.
Historic Shops is a project developed by the Lisbon City Council which aims to promote and protect the historic shops of the city. In this project I worked in the Design Department. As administrator, I organised the of ce, managed the agenda and correspondence, booked visits to the shops and meetings with the shopkeepers, prepared presentations, assisted my colleagues when needed, and eventually managed the production of the design materials. As researcher, I participated in the creation of surveys, interviews and visits to the shops. As graphic designer, I designed the logotype for the project.
Graduate Show developed by 2014-15's final year students of Communication Design from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon. It discussed the concerns, aspirations, conditions, and feelings of our generation, reflecting on the relationship between graphic design and issues such as education, sustainability, technology, sexuality, employment, migration, social activism or involvement in politics. In the Graduate Show I worked as a multi-tasking element of the team, fundraising for the project, researching suitable venues and coordinating the three different teams (Exhibition, Catalogue and Website Designers), booking meetings, assisting my colleagues and managing the agendas. I was also in the Exhibition Design team, and for that reason I participated in the planning of the layout, in the designing of the exhibition’s materials and in the promotion of the exhibition, especially in a social media context.
