Olá, my name is Rui and I'm a Designer + Art director.

I'm 1/3 of Apelido & Apelido studio.

From Lisboa, based in Stockholm studying Interactive Art Direction at Hyper Island.


I do digital Art direction, design, ui ux, create solutions for digital products. Plus, some sleek artworks and posters for interesting projects. On my spare time I collect interesting objects, feed my plants, and listen to classical music.

Once a week I redo a record cover and post it here
