Rita Castilho Sá Couto, aka Rita Laranja is a multidisciplinary creative designer based in Porto. She works in various forms and formats, from album design, printmaking, editorial design, ceramic, UX/UI, illustration and clothes design across all platforms. 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.
Currently working as a freelancer and doing some personal projects exploring illustration, clothes design and ceramics.
