You've been in business for a while.

You know your brand and the value you deliver. Your clients rave about you. But you’re not fully confident with how your brand looks and if it’s communicating your true value and purpose.

When your brand doesn’t fire you up with excitement anymore, it’s time for a re-brand!

You need a brand identity that feels like you’re looking in the mirror – it’s 100% you. And in a way that your audience will instantly connect to. GrowingDesign offers complete brand identity services, tailored to exactly what your business needs.

Pedro Custódio

Motion Designer & 3D Render

I’m a 3D animator and creative director with more than 5 years of experience, working with both musical artists and big companies from all around the world.

Putting imagination to the test is what I do every day. 3D gives people an all-new world of possibilities on what they can achieve for their brand, from the most dramatic and out-of-this-world creations to the more realistic and minimalistic of results.

Create 3D that has meaning, that’s one of my mottos. Creating 3D is one thing, but bringing it to life is another. I always help my clients see that, have the company’s essentials represented in every design or animation we do together.

I’ve started doing graphic design in 2013 and right away, motion design caught my eye! At first, doing 2D animation, but felt restricted in what I was doing. So the only logical way was to start doing 3D, which I did for 1 year in a studio based in Lisbon, always keeping my freelance gigs.

Let’s see what we can achieve with your brand? Shoot me a message.

Patrícia Oliveira

Graphic Designer & Illustrator

I’m a graphic designer focused on helping meaningful & nice-people-managed startups stand out by providing custom and appealing brand visuals.

My journey started with product design, but I soon found out that graphic was the way, when I realized that I had more fun creating the communication assets for my products than designing the products themselves.

Along with 4+ years of freelancing, I had the opportunity to help more than 20 (now a bit happier) business owners from all over the world.

They define the experience as reliable, enjoyable, and smooth.
Keep learning is a must, so, some of my time is invested in it, to make sure I’m always updated and ready to come up with creative solutions for any new challenges.

Let’s meet each other! 

Message me about your project or with any questions about my process. If your project seems like a good fit, we can schedule a call to discuss further details.

Manuel Silva

3D Modeler & Illustrator

Ahoy! My name is Manel da Selva. I am a 3D Artist and Illustrator shaman based in Portugal with more than five years of experience!

Since the start of my art shaman path, I’ve shared my 3D modeling, illustration, and graphic design powers.

I’ve graduated from Esad CR and IPCA and for the past 5 years, I’ve been sharing my soul with great clients including the Boom Festival, Mythic Figurines, and Reflare Models. I’ve also had the honor to win 1st place at Esdica Comic Contest!

When I’m not working as a 3D artist I can be found on the Lusitanian forests making ancestral rites and bike riding.

Are you in need of 3D characters or props for print, design, animation, or games? And also looking for something transcendental? I’ll bring your ideas to the realm of the living just as you imagine!

Justice is Now

Brand design

Justice Is Now is a non-profit organization created in honor of rape victims. They aim to stand up and fight to end the damaging practice of rape myths being used as a defense tactic in courtrooms, so future victims do not endure this injustice.

The conviction rate for rape has gone from 6.5% to 3.5% in the UK. Research shows that too many people believe rape myths and victim blame, and these people are the same people who end up on juries.



The brush written signs used on protests are the inspiration for this concept. The brush stroke represents the freedom of speech and the right to shout and express your thoughts and beliefs by your means. With a vivid yet accessible style, anyone can draw it on a sign, t-shirt, or flag and join the cause. The exclamation point shows the urgency and purpose of change. The time is NOW.

Tiny Leopards

Brand design

~ intro ~
Katrina is a dedicated mom and founder of Tiny Leopards. They are focused on creating clothing for eczema-prone babies that provides structural support to compliment an eczema skin management routine, all while keeping the babies looking cozy and stylish.
 
But they are not just another cute clothing brand. Katrina’s mission is to help parents protect their babies from their skin struggles, create awareness for this kind of challenges and build an online community to support the families that go through it.
 
She wanted a brand identity that would stand out and resonate with the brand vision while keeping a kid-friendly yet sophisticated and hip look.
 
My task here was to translate that mood into meaningful visuals.
Let’s find out how!
Before diving into colors and shapes, we set a session to chat about the brand. You’ll get a simple brand identity questionnaire, and, based on your insights, we’ll develop a mood board. With this, I can fully understand your goals and sense of style that will help us follow the right creative path and ensure we end up with satisfactory results.
~ concept & solution ~
logo
The Tiny Leopards logo exhibits a resting closed eye leopard and reflects the positive outcome the products will have in babies’ lives. It enhances the sense of comfort, relief and protection felt by babies when wearing these special clothes.
The arched typography transmits a sense of playfulness but also protection.
The tiny leopard is comfy, relaxed, and well-accommodated under the rainbow.

color palette

Warm, trendy & cozy:
The color palette gathers gender neutral, hip and warm pastel tones.
social media assets + icon set
Following the brand vision, Katrina wanted to transmit comfort and sleepiness on Tiny Leopards’ social media channels. So, we developed a set of templates containing organic shapes, patterns inspired by leopard spots and light color tones.
The selected typography has nice curvy details that match the overall feeling of the brand.
Remember the brand identity questionnaire I mentioned before?
It helped us create this beautiful brand identity, plus, at the end of the project, all the information was compiled on a Brand Style Guide. This document contains the most important details about the brand, as well as logo usage guidelines and overall visual style, to make sure anyone who works with it, does it cohesively.

Brand design

Sophie Chastanet is a self-development coach, who focuses on real-estate professionals to improve their mindset and prospecting processes. She was looking for a way to meaningfully start building her personal brand.
Sophie already had a following on LinkedIn when she reached out, but felt that brand-wise she didn’t had any focus, defined strategy, goals or clarity on how to do it.
By the end of a 3 months project working with us, Sophie now presents herself to the world in a way that not only makes sense to her and her audience but that also makes her proud, confident and unique!
Accueilir. Accepter. Agir.

Through training and individual sessions, Sophie Chastanet helps real estate agents to become aware of their true value and therefore to better sell themselves.

We can be bold and talented in what we do, but if we’re not hard-workers we may not really succeed.

Authenticity

If we want to work on ourselves, we must be true to ourselves. 

 

Caring

The best ability to be kind and generous to others.

L’humain et le business.
The project being a personal brand, we decided to work on a monogram logo that captured the flow and 360º approach Sophie provides her clients with.

The brand goal is to help individuals develop their "raison d'être", their self-esteem so that they can succeed professionally.

Stationery

A stationery that fully represents Sophie and her brand was created. Her supporting communication materials are now in-tune to her communication style and main brand goals.

L’art de la raison d’etre.

Printed booklet

Sophie's new brand identity can now be easily translated into any sort of marketing material. Always consistent, always visually engaging.

Brand guidelines book

The final step, is the Brand Guidelines Book - easy to understand and follow guidelines to implement the new brand in the most coherent and aligned way.

Joel Sousa

Brand & Graphic Designer

I’m a brand identity & graphic designer passionate about helping businesses (re)create their brands the right way. I work with business owners 1:1 to help them dig deep and uncover their business’s true purpose and the goals they want to achieve with their brand.

Many of our clients are established entrepreneurs who have been in business for several years. They know the value they provide and where they want their business to go. However, most have never done the groundwork to match their brand to that inner conviction.

And let’s face it: your brand is more than a logo. It’s in everything you show up: your values, your personality, your drive, your mission, your messaging. It’s in the way you start a conversation, how you engage with your network, and how you present yourself and your company to the world.

I’ve been a graphic designer for over a decade, but since 2019, I’ve focused my work more on helping businesses create their brand foundation, designing complete Brand DNAs, and creating brand-aligned visuals.

I’m the first point of contact at GrowingDesign, and I’ll hold your hand (figuratively) through the entire process. At GrowingDesign, you work side by side with a personal team of creative freelancers, and together we’ll create a brand for you that is strong internally and externally.

I studied Graphic Design and Multimedia at the School of Art and Design in Caldas da Rainha (ESAD.CR), and am fluent in English, French, and Portuguese.
