João Miranda

Multidisciplinary Designer

London, United Kingdom
I'm João* Miranda, a Portuguese “Jack-of-all-trades, master of some” based in Brixton, London. I can go from art direction to design with a stylish jump on lettering and illustration. But where you can really explore my magic is in branding.
In the past 5 years, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some great agencies and studios, while freelancing and sharing great conversations with clients. If I had to be something, I would be a letter.
