We, for a while, thought it would be cool to come up with some radical titles for our team members.
Then, we realized that you don’t really care about radical titles. You want to know who we are, who we really are. Working together requires trust and intimacy. It’s not a time to get clever so here’s the straight goods about our little team of Makers*.

Tito Nunes calls himself a graphic designer. But he’s much more than that; he’s a detail driven visual problem solver with keen instincts, a strategic mind, and a background in illustration and photography. Whether Tito is working with analog or digital technologies, he does whatever it takes to create meaningful and captivating designs.
Tito believes the meaning behind a design is as important as both the journey and the outcome. As part of his unique creative process, Tito combines his expertise in conceptual design, branding, packaging, with his passion for mold making, 3D printing (SLA & FDM), epoxy casting, and welding.
