Mozambican designer and visual strategist, João is co-founder and head of design at Anima Creative Studio, the first local collective focusing on communication for Art, Culture and Social Development at large.
Graduated with a BA from the University of Aveiro, he more recently completed an MFA from the Design Department at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam. The final research project The Hands That Feed You reflects on certain dynamics of global dependency, focusing on the North-South divide. It echoes on present day situations and constructs hypothetical scenarios of emancipation, where intuition, resourcefulness and craftsmanship become core values in a revolutionary strive to reinvent mankind.
João is interested in exploring new and sustainable educational models, founded on creative self-reliance.
Currently working between Maputo and Amsterdam, always up for commission, collaboration, lecture and workshop opportunities.
