This proves that not only the Swiss are good at managing nice minimalistic graphic design. The young creatives João Martins, João Simões, João Sousa and Pedro Gonçalves have joined forces to build up their studio called v-a. Founded in 2010 and based in Lisbon, v-a focuses on a range of several visual communication projects which includes editorial design, web design and web development for some cultural, architecture and educational entities. They also were among the participants of World Graphics Day at Esad and 20 XX VINTE, an initiative held by The Institute of Design, under Guimarães 2012. They’re talented, diverse and have a nice and clean website. So… sorry Swiss but portuguese designers can make it as good as you do too. Any doubt about it!? – Check their portfolio.
