Hi! My name is Celeste Pedro, I'm a communication designer graduated at the Fine Arts Faculty in Porto, Portugal. My main focuses have since been typography and editorial design. While working for ten years in design agencies I did my Masters in Design and Intermedia at the University of Barcelona, Spain. My research on dictionaries' design, has led me closer to the field of History of Typography and to the engagement in various language courses, workshops and summer schools related to the edition of texts and book production. In the past years, I specialised in early printed books and palaeography, while conducting my PhD research on History of Portuguese Print Culture in the Sixteenth Century, funded by FCT. I am is currently a researcher for the project From Data to Wisdom at the Philosophy Institute of the University of Porto, where I continue my work on early-modern Portuguese authors and printers.
