Hi, my name is Marco Monteiro, I'm an artist and a designer with more than 15 years of experience in publicity and communication as illustrator, graphic designer, art director and web and user interface designer. Graduated in Visual Arts by the University of Brasilia (UnB), I have also attended two years of Architecture and currently i'm doing masters degree in archaeology and rock art at the University of Lisbon. My work as designer has always focused creativity and innovation, trying to offer objective and unique communication solutions. I believe that the challenge to the artist and to the designer is to translate needs and wishes, using his work, transforming these into simple, functional and attractive solutions. I am aware that the work itself is a constant exercise of apprenticeship and overcoming, but I believe that it is a gift work with design and arts.
