My name is Emerson Eller.
I'm a brazilian graphic designer, researcher, teacher, and above all I'm a letterform enthusiast. Currently living in Lisbon.
What I doI work as freelancer, especially with exhibition design, editorial design, corporate identity, and with another projects involving lettering or typography. I also spend my time with personal projects such as type design, letterpress, calligraphy, illustration, and with other print projects.
After getting my master degree in Brazil I moved to Lisbon to continue my studies and to run a research regarding the early printing in Brazil and its relation with Portugal during 18th and 19th centuries.
