MA work

Graphic design broadens, merges and blurs its boundaries every second. With this reality, a designer's identity is lost, contaminating society with even more ambiguity.

My goal is to reduce this ambiguity, generating work that can simultaneously inform, suggest and criticise. I aim to generate discussion, promote social awareness, while exploring and researching what I believe to be the same thing: theory and practice.
