Product Designer, ESAD


My name is João Milagre Santos, I'm 22 years old and I have a bachelor's degree in Equipment Design from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lisbon, Portugal.I began to take a keen interest in art, and design in particular, about four years ago. Since then it has become my greatest passion. I'm also very interested in its connection with philosophy and how it influences both areas.I'm always looking for new projects to create or take part in, where I can test various ideas and apply my principles.Some of the most important characteristics to look for in my design are sustainability and functionality, always with a lasting perspective.Throughout my career I have developed a brand that has begun to reflect my way of thinking and my personality as a designer and artist - Orange Strips.

About ESAD

In 1989, a group of teachers set up a school. They had a new vision of design and wanted to respond to the gaps in teaching in this area and the needs of a changing industry. Today, with around five thousand graduates, ESAD - Escola Superior de Artes e Design is a benchmark in design and the arts in Portugal and around the world.
