My name is Ana Isabel Ramos. I design for print and for the screen. I design knitwear and embroidery patterns and teach people how to knit and embroider.

I provide graphic design and illustrations to businesses and individuals.

I teach how to knit and embroider in schools and other organisations.

I co-host a podcast about female entrepreneurship in Portuguese called “Anita no Trabalho”.

I write a weekly letter to friends, where I share stories and images of my studio’s behind-the-scenes.



My lovely clients at the Magnolia Inn have said the following about working with me:

“As far as working with Ana, in all honesty she is a pleasure to work with. She does what she says and when she says she will do it. Ana was always prompt when responding to our feedback. She listened to our ideas and incorporated them into the sketches like we wanted. And her sketches are beautiful and fun and detailed with an air of whimsy to them… they’re great”.

[By the way, I loved working with them too.]

I loved working with them too.

And the same is true about working with Maria João, who says:

“O trabalho de design é bastante complexo, pois implica a capacidade de conciliar o trabalho técnico com gostos pessoais do cliente, o que acredito nem sempre seja fácil de conseguir. Ao trabalhar com a Ana, sempre a senti dedicada e bastante preocupada em ir de encontro ao que eu pretendia,conseguindo encontrar soluções criativas e perfeitamente alinhadas com os meus interesses e gostos. Só tenho elogios e recomendo vivamente o seu trabalho!”

Maria João Ceitil, coach, formadora e consultora em Recursos Humanos


And the lovely members of the air Embroidery Club say:

“Since joining the air Embroidery Club, I feel more inspired and curious, and am eager to try new embroidery techniques. (…) My embroidery skills were close to zero. After completing an air Embroidery Club project, I feel fulfilled and proud of the finished embroidery.”

(Cristina S., Portugal)

“I love it when I finish an air Embroidery Club project. I’m happy to think of it as team work, combining creativity and skill. I like to imagine new projects with the finished embroidery: wall art, an embroidered quilt, embroidered blankets… So many ideas!”

(Guida Ramos, Portugal)

I am happy to allocate part of my work hours to pro-bono work. If you are a charity, let’s talk.

To work with me, send me an email. You may expect a reply in 1-2 business days. Because I’m usually booked in advance, please allow a minimum of four weeks of work before deadline. An urgent fee may be applied to tighter deadlines.
