Crio is Portuguese
for “I Create”
In Zen, ensō is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. No two are ever the same, as each expresses the unique character of its creator, just as your website design is unique to you.
