Maria Adelaide identity

Branding and site design for MariaAdelaide, a creative coding and web development collective based in Portugal. MA’s name references an eponymous 19th-century folk saint whose corpse was said to smell strongly of roses. Riffing on this association, we developed a colorful 8-bit-like monogram that evokes stained glass windows, as well as a complementing rose icon.

Patterns built from these elements are present throughout the studio’s visual identity—serving as backgrounds for Instagram posts and stories showcasing MA’s work and as a vibrant interactive border for their website.
