My name is Ana Isabel Ramos. I am a graphic designer, UX/UI designer, an illustrator and knitwear designer living in and working from Lisbon, Portugal.
I work with clients in a range of projects that covers:
• new logos and corporate identity
• magazines and book covers
• digital interfaces like apps and websites.
My training as a designer informs my illustrations, too, and I always have general page and spread composition in mind when I create:
• illustrations for magazines
• children’s books
• graphic novels
I love using my hands to create new things, and I enjoy using embroidery as a medium to illustrate my own stories. My first book, coming out in the Autumn of 2023, was written and illustrated through embroidery by me. Please sign up to receive my weekly newsletter to be the first to know when it is ready for pre-order.
My love for design, for creating things and for sharing them with the world is best shown in my knitwear designs and my embroidery designs. You can purchase my knitting designs here and my embroidery designs here to stitch them yourself.
You can find me on Instagram, LinkedIn, ravelry, and on Anita no Trabalho, the podcast I co-host with my friend Eli about female entrepreneurship (in Portuguese). And you can sign up to receive my weekly letters to peek behind the scenes of the studio.
Here’s how to work with me.
