Margarida Sousa Silva

b. 1997 — Lisbon, Portugal

Currently based in München, designing at Stylight.

I’m a Visual & Product Designer who enjoys experimentation and multidisciplinary projects. My practice is sustained by a solid conceptual thinking, a deep involvement in every project, curiosity in crossing disciplines, exploring new forms of communication and connecting with people. In the last year I’ve been working with Stylight, developing my interest in data visualisation, graphic, digital and interaction design. You can check some of them here.

I mainly focus on translating forward-thinking ideas through graphic identities, digital design, art directions, photography, publications, signages, and websites for cultural projects, businesses and individuals.

I’m always interested to work in collaboration with studios, people, friends or clients.
