Hi, my name is alicia :)
Born in Africa, growing up in Portugal and now living in Vancouver, Canada I am very inspired by cultures, colours and methods of communication.
Passionate about design and photography I love creating beautiful graphics for the print and the online world. I believe in conceptual, story telling designs that communicate a message, as opposed to only looking pretty. Taking a passionate and innovative approach towards design and details I am very dedicated to my work and take great pride in the creatives I produce.
Tired of the corporate world I left my full time job as an in-house designer in July 2013 and am now fortunate enough to pursue my dreams of growing my own design studio, working with a wide range of small and big businesses. Whether you are an existing company, a start-up or a fellow creative I would love to hear from you!

I’m obsessed with typography. My favourite food is toast and if I could have a seal pet I would. I have a serious passion for photography and am always exploring new ways to take/edit photos. My favourite artist is Frida Kahlo and Paula Scher never ceases to amaze me with her typography skills.
The serious stuff
Formally trained as a graphic designer from the Art Institute of Vancouver I am always eager to learn more and am currently completing my Web Marketing Certificate at Langara College. Want more details? Download my resume here.
I illustrated the pages of Violet, a children’s book which encourages children to face their fears. The book was illustarted by hand, through cutting and pasting different coloured and textured paper and materials to create a tactile experience for the young readers to explore.
