o Banquinho is a design studio established by experienced story tellers Claudia de Almeida and Margaret Swart. We live and breathe design, and it shows.

Selected Work:

Magazine Redesigns

Logo development and Branding 


Lettering, Badges and Graphics

o Banquinho was born from a serendipitous meeting at Wired magazine and the subsequent crazy-exciting redesign process during which we realized that our respective strengths are scarily complementary. That led to a reconnection after we both had opted to downsize to upsize (as it were), and had launched our own studios. Our combined experience includes leadership positions at major magazines and agencies; collaboration with high-tech titans; and brand development for a wide range of clients. We are passionate about the design and fanatical about the process; and we are single-minded in our pursuit of the best possible solution.
