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. If I could pick someone to spend two hours talking, that would be Greg Graffin.
Currently freelancing at 
Livity.

*in case you're wondering how to pronounce my name.

Album of the month

We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service by A Tribe Called Quest

They are back! And we needed them!
A dirty artwork as if it was done by a kid that makes me feel that they say thank you to the very organized chaos (that we can call society) and then a kid (let's try millennials here) occupied the scene with a crayon drawing on top assuming its position of consciousness that is much needed. A bit like they did 18 years ago with the hip-hop movement and the world, once again they're back with an epic album that is much needed if we think about how's the world today.

Book of the month

David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell

I know, I know... it's the third Gladwell's book that I'm reviewing, but I can't help myself. They're just so easy to read and feed you with so much relevant information to better understand how we perceive people and society that every time I start one of his books I feel that everybody should be aware of the things is talking about.
