Discover the interview of Fatinha Ramos, located in Portugal.
How did you become designer ?
As long as I remember, I have always been amazed by all the forms of art. I grew up hearing my brother playing Bach, and I was always surrounded by the photos of my grandfather…
As all children, I draw a lot too, but with the difference it was obsessively. I wouldn’t play, in order to draw longer. I always wanted to become an illustrator, but because in that time there was no illustrator course, I went to study Graphic Design. Very happy I did it, because it provided me the basic knowledge I use for my illustrations.
How would you define your vision of design, your style ?
I don´t like to define my style, because I want the observer to decide for himself. I prefer to stay flexible in that: is not the material or technique that decides a good illustration, but mainly the idea/concept behind.
My illustrations come from deep, and are mainly with layers, for instance: what seems to be a happy illustrations, has actually a lot of melancholy. The way I do it, is though creating a surrealistic atmosphere.
For the future, what are your professional projects ?
That my professional projects become my personal projects.
