Designers Catarina Vasconcelos and Margarida Rêgo work together as Ilhas studio, splitting their time between London and Lisbon (the name translates as “islands” in English). The pair’s portfolio is an impressive mix of print and exhibition design while their Side by Side Ilhas strand allows them to explore different types of project away from their main graphics practice. There’s lots to admire but I was especially drawn to the duo’s work on Cine Qua Non, an artistic journal of the University of Lisbon Centre for English Studies (particularly the recent redesign) and their collaboration with artist and architect Kevin Green on Harlington.
We’ll be keen to see how this talented twosome progress but their aesthetic eye and talent for the odd surprise touch lead us to believe the future is sunny for Ilhas.
