Art + Design

Creative Director

Joana Machado’s career choice had nothing to do with chance. Ever since she can remember, creativity, art, the search for an aesthetic have always been there. When the time came, it was a no brainer. She decided to go  for multidisciplinary team work. This was also the guideline when creating We are from Colonia, the studio representing a unique, one-of-a-kind aesthetic.

Joana finds new approaches to design, art and creativity through creative directing, branding development and curatorship. But other passions stir her. Photography and video came later, but are, today, a vital part of her everyday life. Her enthusiasm is a force pushing the studio forward and towards national and international recognition.
