Stoodio Santiago da Silva works on book design, printed/digital matter, communication, and display systems within the cultural and contemporary art context. During the last 10 years, the stoodio’s production has grown based on research, experimentation and dialogue, leading to a varied visual vocabulary. The work continues to develop informed by the context of each project.

The studio’s infrastructure is based on an extended network of fellow designers, editors, press agents, etc. Since 2021, independent designer Ana Cecilia Breña has run the stoodio together with Santiago da Silva, personally taking care of all projects.
