- I was born in Póvoa de Varzim, a small town near Oporto. Póvoa is a coastal town rich in fishery. The fishermen have been using visual symbols to communicate with each other. They are painted in a large tile panel near the beach.
- I gathered most of this symbols trying to find an association with me, my name or something that could represent me visually.
The image below shows some of the fishermen acronyms.
- I realised that some of them had a similarity with letters. The second one, for example, reminds me of a "u". With this in mind I "redesigned" the letters of my name (Nuno) with this symbols. Without adding or removing elements of the symbol I animated the transformation between my name and the fishermen acronyms.
