Meaning: "that one who is contemplated with admiration."
Coincidentally or not, my brand name was created with admiration as the basis.
Oh, Thaís! is much cooler when you say it as if you were surprised and amazed by something: "Ohhh, that's beautiful, Thais!" "Oh, how nice it is, Thais!"
My intention is, and will always be, to provoke admiration in my clients, by the way they are treated and by the result of a good work built together.

“Increasingly, the market seeks professionals who are not just a designer or have certain techniques but complete people who have diverse opinions and abilities. I want to expand as much as possible and inspire others to open up and think outside the box as well.”

Designer, illustrator, creator and blogger.
My name is Thaís Aragão, I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and, since 2015, I live in Portugal.
Fashion and Graphic Designer by education, I also work with writing and illustration.
I am very versatile, enthusiastic, perfectionist and passionate about visuals and creation with meaning - whatever you have inside your head and do not know how to get it out, I can help you.
In Brazil, I worked for more than 6 years with creation of prints, product development and collections.
And, thanks to our wonderful internet and remote work, I work as a freelancer designer in Portugal. I continue to do the same for other brazilian companies, as well as graphic works for small entrepreneurs, such as branding and visual identity, for example.
I love animals and I also have a developing clothing and accessories brand for pets: Oh, Pets!

Since I was a child, I was already hanging on to the artistic side and I was sure that I would work in the creative field, being an advertiser or a writer. At age 11, I loved doing homemade exhibitions of my drawings and clay sculptures. It was at this age too that I created my first blog, where I wrote about my teenage passions and anguishes.
Time passed and I continued to write, so much so that I was even invited to join a team that would write for Revista Capricho, where I stayed for three years, writing texts about the most varied agendas. Most recently, I was a columnist for SOS Solteiros, writing about my travels.
So much my passion and dedication to writing (in school, my favorite subjects were Portuguese, Writing and Literature), I almost applied for Journalism or Law School.
However, enchanted by the forms, colors and all the "glamour" of the profession (which does not exist, by the way), I started Fashion Design School, where I fell in love with classes in Prints and Patterns, Art and Clothing History, Fashion Journalism and Portuguese (of course! hehe).
After graduating, I decided to face another college, Graphic Design. Early in the first semester, I got an internship in a women's accessory company that brought the two areas together and during the more than 6 years I worked there, I specialized in development of prints and products.
In parallel, I got involved in projects and artistic collaborations, such as the world-renowned Cow Parade exhibition and the creation of the poster series "Procura-se um amor que goste de" (which even became a book in 2015 and today has a range of products).
My creative mind never let me stay still.
So I felt the need to leave my job and the chaos of a big city to devote myself more to what my heart wanted and to live according to what I believe: safe and sound mind, safe and sound body (and vice versa!).
In addition to all these passions I have mentioned, I love to travel (almost always alone), dance, do yoga, watch series, read about personal development, cooking and eating! :B (and it's pretty much about all those things I write on the blog)
I spend a lot of time planning travels, watching videos of cute little pets, stretching myself, testing recipes and posting on Instagram.
Nice to meet you, I am Thaís!
And you? Who are you?
