"VIRA RETRO" owner/urban craft/bookbinder/tile lover/photographer/graphic designer
Please see here for information about her stationery products
She has a degree in Photography and Masters in Visual Arts and Intermedia and she is now a passionate about handmade urban crafts of her own design. Not only designing but she prints and make the products all by herself.
I asked her some questions as I wanted to know how her journey has been as a craft woman.
Adriana Santos lives in Porto but originally from Viana do Castelo which is near the border in the North of Portugal. Adriana makes products with beautiful motifs developed from Portuguese colourful tiles which she loves very much since she was young.
I adore the Portuguese houses and buildings with the traditional tiles. Some of them are rally unique and cheerful and that's what I felt when I saw her notebooks for the first time. Now, I can carry the azulejos with me :)
