Tiago Cristo, a freelance multidisciplinary designer and art director working for the generation of credible, dynamic and alive Brands.

I develop Communications in the most compelling ways online and offline, embracing all the relevant media channels in the actual brands-cape.

I provide a seamless global service combining creativity, technology and strategy for the creation of real brand connections able to engage and inspire all audiences.

what I think.

I believe in quality design and innovative thinking. I work passionately taking a unique and creative approach to every project. I deliver integrated solutions tailored to the specific needs of each client creating real and effective brand value.

the place, the studio.

Located near Lisbon, I built the studio away from traffic and conglomeration. I believe an inspiring and healthy environment makes a difference in my everyday work. I work in a beautiful, luminous and calm place where some of my favorite moments happened.


I create and redesign b2b and b2c brands for clients ranging from start-ups to global corporations.

Identity concepts cover the cornerstones of branding: positioning, story, visual identity and tone of voice, naming, and guidelines.

I can offer to clients experienced design service for publications as well as pre-press, printing and distribution.

I pay attention to the smallest detail throughout the entire process, from the typefaces used, to quality control during printing; all in order to ensure exquisite and beautiful results.

I design websites, mobile applications, and digital retail solutions that work and stand out.

Today, the digital arena is essential for brand building. I create brand identities and experiences digital first. The result is always true to the brand and is strict belief in quality.

My retail offering ranges from full store concepts, boutique shops and shops-in-shops to individual product displays and visual merchandising solutions. I bring brands to life at web shops, events, exhibitions, and corporate premises.

Physical spaces still make a big impact in today’s digital world. My strength is the ability to seamlessly combine retail and spatial design with brand identity, digital and service design to create holistic experiences in retail and other environments.

I know how to create packaging that sells. I develop packaging makeovers and create solutions for entirely new products. I can design either just the branding and graphics or the whole packaging from the ground up.

In addition to packaging solutions, I design several other physical manifestations for brands, ranging from product displays to installations.
