I grew up under the influence of Clarice Lispector (you can laugh, it seems like a cliché from Instagram, but this woman's work really changed my life), Fernando Pessoa, Edgar Allan Poe and other names in literature who were very intimate to melancholy.


These passions led me to writing as a form of self-knowledge. It was only recently that I understood how writing and design could serve as some sort of escapism, as well as an exercise.


As I thought about it — while trying to reconnect with the 14-year-old Camila who was passionate about poetry and would write on any piece of loose paper I could find — that I decided to create the typo.esia profile on Instagram.
