I started by studying Fine Arts in Lisbon and ended up having more fun doing the explanation book for an art project than the project itself. That's when I decided to study graphic design. I went to the University of Évora and the University of the Basque Country. While studying I co-founded a design studio and travelled the world with a project where I exchanged design services for accommodation, food, and services. This project was my way of getting my first projects and to have direct contact with clients.
Humana is a graphic design studio that focuses on developing visual systems that cares about people.
Creativity, uniqueness, and most importantly, passion.
I’m Ana Abreu and I run a graphic design studio called Humana. Full-time graphic designer and entrepreneur, and part-time surfer. I love nature, and to work with interesting people on projects that can change the world.
Don’t wait for someone to give you an opportunity, give yourself the opportunity to try everything that comes to your mind, because everything is possible. Be different and stay creative.
Giving talks at some amazing places, like the Brief Festival in Madrid, and Conversas in Rotterdam, getting my projects published on magazines, like Page Magazine from Germany, and of course, being one of the winners of the TDK Awards '18 :)
