Graphic design. Illustration. Kindness.
Lisbon → World.


Office of Ricardo Santos is the independent graphic design and illustration studio of (yes, you guessed it) Ricardo Santos. I work in print and digital and my practice ranges from branding projects to illustration, editorial, typography, web design, motion and writing and research. I work with clients big and small on every time zone. You can reach out here 24/7 for any inquiries, love letters, hate mail, collabs, and anything in-between. Let’s make cool things together!
