João Machado is an awarded graphic designer based in Portugal who specializes in poster, logo, and packaging design. As a designer, he knows the importance of making his work stand apart from his peers. His signature style is instantly recognizable; the color work is distinct, and his smooth and clean illustrated work is clear and catches the eyes of onlookers.
Featured above are two of his award-winning work “Cinanima” (above, left) which won Silver in the Poster Annual 2014, and “Zoo” (above, right) which won Gold in the Poster Annual 2017. Both posters make use of vivid hues and illustrations that encourage the eye to wander around the image. “Zoo,” like much of his recent work, raises awareness for social-political and environmental issues.
