"People, stories, identity and patterns through meaningful, bold and fresh design."Mariana Lancastre is a Portuguese graphic designer and brand expert with a love for illustration and patterns. Alongside her working in branding design and identity projects, she creates self-initiated projects and collaborations around illustration and pattern design. She approaches an illustration project with a branding mindset, by looking for the most meaningful and simple idea that expresses a person, a landscape or a story.Patterns play a big role in her work, as they tell so much about how humans need repetition and routines in their lives. There is something beautiful about repetition!
