About min


Min is 24 years old, lives in Porto, loves typography to death and cannot see a white surface without having to restrain herself from drawing on it. Sesame street is probably where the alphabet obsession started, then went on with graffiti and pretty books. She always used to nag everyone asking them to pick something for her to draw: "challenge accepted". Nowadays, she works as a designer/illustrator, and coming to think of it, the only difference is that now people pay her to draw those things they ask. Or at least they should. At some point, paper just wasn't enough so she started a t-shirt brand with another designer called "Rivals". Also, she's the art director of a music netlabel called Monster Jinx, a big family she calls her friends.
