Rita Castilho Sá Couto, aka Rita Laranja is a multidisciplinary graphic designer and illustrator based in Porto, Portugal. Unable to focus in one practice she fluctuates between printed and digital matter.
As a self taught printmaker, she’s fascinated by various hand printing techniques therefore most of her personal work takes the form of relief prints created using the lengthy process of lino-cutting and wood-cutting. Influenced by comics, games and parts of Japanese culture her personal work is a fusion of her main interests.
Currently working as a freelancer and doing some personal projects exploring illustration, design and animation.
