NM Design is the multidisciplinary studio of Nuno Moreira, a visual artist and author working predominantly with graphic design, photography, collage and sometimes video.
The studio started in 2007 as a solo adventure and as the years went by it grew into a collaborative practice between different creatives within the areas of publishing, illustration, design communication and print making.
Born in Lisbon, Nuno studied Cinema but always worked as photographer, educator and designer, being most importantly a self-taught image maker.
For over a decade he's been working independently through his own studio which specializes in art direction for books, music design, photography and brand identity / consultancy for clients all over the world.
Nuno's personal projects include artworks and numerous series of installations, books and photography projects such as FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (2011), STATE OF MIND (2013), ZONA (2015), SHE LOOKS INTO ME (2018) and ERRATA (2020).
Since 2006 Nuno has exhibited solo and in group shows, in galleries and museums, and his limited-edition artist books are part of private and public collections.
