Antonio Limpo

Graphic Designer, Illustrator

My name is Antonio and I'm from Portugal.

I'm a graphic designer and illustrator, and I usually work with all kinds of clients, from small to big. I like to work in graphic, editorial and web design. I also work as an illustrator, and not seldom mix techniques and styles.

I've got an Art History college degree, plus two years of specializing in Graphic, Web and Editorial Design, and video edit. I'm also an Adult Teaching Professional Trainer.

I've worked for international events like VERA World Fine Art Expo in Lisbon, and MONSTRA International Animated Film Festival. 

I'm also the Drawing and Painting teacher for Lisbon Arts Academy, in Lisbon, where I'm also the school principal. I've been teaching kids, teens and adults for more than 10 years, started way back when I was 22!

I've always loved to draw, paint and create and I come from a family of teachers and artists.

Let's create together!
