Hi, I’m Pedro Velho (1991, PT) and I’m a visual communicator and a storyteller.
I work mostly with graphic design and illustration (Cultural Communication and Editorial).

Between expressive characters, bold patterns/textures and mixing traditional and digital techniques,
I try to explore a different visual universe to each project, using my interdisciplinary background.

My personal and professional experience made me open and curious to new processes, projects and ideas.
It also made me flexible to find new ways to communicate in a more creative and efficient way.

Social Education, Inclusion and Representativity are really important in the way I approach my work.

In 2023 I created corpo-paisagem with Sérgio Galvão Roxo, a collective project focused on producing socially engaged art projects.

Feel free to contact me for questions, commissions, projects or collaborations!
