About the Logo
Nelson Fernandes aka Zina Caramelo logo is a contemporary approach based in a simple and poetic logic. 
The aim of this construction is to achieve a comprehensive design, applicable to all relevant media.
The development of a brand new "alphabetic" symbol - the visual key of the artist's identity – represents a new way of expression.
The result arises from the fusion between his name (Nelson) and his artistic name (Zina), gathered by the first letter.
Nelson (Fernandes) + Zina (Caramelo) = N & Z
