Valdemar Lamego runs k–ü–n–g, a small, independent graphic design bureau based in Portugal. Lamego’s been working under the moniker k–ü–n–g since late 2010 when he left the studio Alva, where he was a partner between 09.2009 and 10.2010. Before that he worked in some of the leading design agencies in Portugal: by, RMAC, +2designers, and Mola.Ativism.
The studio's methodology is built on the goal to communicate the intrinsic attributes of each commission through well-crafted, thoughtful and direct solutions. A grounding on conceptual thinking and a distinctive typographic approach is essential to the studio's practice. k–ü–n–g work reflects its time and is often personal, informed by the curious observation of contemporary culture. Collaboration with other designers is a constant source of renewal and inspiration.
