ABOUT ME

What started as a daughter’s admiration to show and share her parents work to the world, later flourished into what is now my life’s mission: creating beautiful and meaningful reflections of one’s dream.

At 17 I made the decision to leave my home in Portugal and start my own self-discovery journey. For the next 7 years I got my degree (BA Graphic Design), lived and worked in London - known as the world’s largest capital of diversity - which was “just my cup of tea”.

With 5 years of experience in the design world building  identities and creating high-level tailored solution for the most diverse industry backgrounds, I truly believe design is the way to go for self-expression.

It takes a lot of courage and confidence to be exposed, so having the right people by your side is key.

General definition of “Adarsha” (from Buddhism):
“Ādarśa or Ādarśajñāna refers to the “pristine wisdom that is mirror-like.”

MIKE CLEAR

HEAD OF WONDR STUDIOS | Wondr Medical

"Adarsha is a wonderful designer, a great member of the creative team, and a joy to work with. She has a fastidious attention to detail and manages her workload well. She also managed and taught the junior designer well and supported his growth as a designer. One of her main achievements with Wondr Medical has been to develop and implement the brand guidelines for the company - across a wide variety of assets."

CHARLIE SHEPHERD

FOUNDER / CO-OWNER | EPIC Travel

“We came to Adarsha with a design challenge that drew upon her analytical and practical skills. Throughout the process we found her to be highly methodical, well-organized and with a great understanding of what we needed as a solution. She produced for us a collection of inspiring and highly functional templates to be used as Travel Plans for our discerning international clientele. From our first conversations to the post-project follow-up, Adarsha was a joy to work with and we would highly recommend her to others!”

SELDA SHAMLOO

HEAD OF MARKETING | Wondr Medical

"Adarsha is a talented creative designer that I had the pleasure to work with during our time at Wondr Medical. Her incredible work in the creation of our brand assets and visual brand helped us bring our brand identity to life. She’s always been a reliable partner whose creative recommendations go beyond the original brief. She is a pleasure to work with and I can’t recommend her work enough."

PADDY GRIFFITH

DIRECTOR | Wondr Medical

"Adarsha's flexibility as a designer has been consistently challenged, and she has always stepped up to the plate. As the sole designer in the startup Wondr, she has at various times led in Brand Design, Marketing Comms and Clinical Education Design. Adarsha has done all of the above with positivity and commitment and has forged great relationships with people across the business who have come to rely on her skills. I would endorse her skills, be it as a local or remote colleague."

LEYLA POPE

CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER | Wondr Medical

“Adarsha is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is organized, has a key eye for design and for detail and approaches all her work with diligence and consideration. All the work she has produced at Wondr has been to a consistently high standard. She is also very professional about her work, always meets deadlines and always goes the extra mile. She also showed great sensitivity in how she managed a colleague and taught him new skills. I would not hesitate in recommending her to others, they’d be lucky to work with her."

ALYSSA HUPFELD

DESIGNER | EPIC Travel

"The experience of working with Adarsha has been amazing, she really tries to find the best solution and is very client-focused. When faced with a lot of strange requests Adarsha is happy to take on the challenge and “it’s not possible” is really the last resort after having tried everything, and even then she manages to come up with an acceptable plan B! The program she has found for us has already made a big impact and the new Travel Plan is being received super well within the team and by the clients as well!"

ROSA SANTOS

PRESIDENT | TEATRO REACTOR

"Our company is very well represented by an original logo that gives us great distinction, together with our Facebook page that hints to a methodological organization. The play’s flyers also stand out with its own creativity followed by other appealing designs in our photos, videos and other posts shared which are a pleasure to see and revisit!"

FÁBIO TORRES

PLAYWRITER | TEATRO REACTOR

"Visual communication plays a very important role in the trajectory of any theater company since it is through it that the audience has a first impression. The work that Adarsha Gavião does for Reactor has its quality enhanced exactly by creating such a close link between this visual communication and the way in which the dramaturgy/author is valued and treated in all projects undertaken. A talented combination of images, text, and layout helps to transmit the artistic proposal, the plot of the play, and the emotional climate that will be experienced by the audience."

EDUARDO MORAIS

ACTOR | TEATRO REACTOR

"Objective, specific and appealing. These are the words that occur to me to describe the work on the brand developed! Very modern and careful, the passion for the subject and dedication are present throughout all the designs."
