Amado’s prolific output manages to blend highly agitated typography with warped and wonderful illustration styles, all within a framework of rigorous layout, concept, and communication.
Originally from Portugal, Amado moved to New York to work for design consultancy Pentagram, then moved on to Bloomberg Businessweek magazine, and finally advertising agency Weiden + Kennedy.
Now with his own studio focused on illustration and design for cultural clients, his wildly diverse and constantly morphing work never fails to exude an overwhelming sense of joy.

About the Insights Lecture Series
Insights is a design lecture series for progressive creatives. A unique collaboration between the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota, the series embraces the unexpected to present diverse, exploratory, and contemporary lecturers.
Featuring perspectives from around the world, Insights gives voice to adventurous design thinkers and makers. These designers often pose challenges and push the edges of their profession, in turn inspiring us to identify new perspectives in our own work.
For over three decades, the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota have co-presented the Insights Design Lecture Series and brought the world’s most adventurous design thinkers and makers to the Twin Cities.
Redefine your understanding of graphic design, dive into the thinking behind the work, then hang out after the lectures to meet the lecturers, grab a drink, and chat with your fellow design lovers.
Past lectures are archived on the Walker Art Center YouTube channel.
