(Don’t worry. I only dress like this in the weekends)

 
 

I’m a Designer from Portugal with a background in start-ups and a crush for photojournalism. I believe good work happens when you’re having a laugh.

 

1990

I was born.

 

2008–2013

Degree in Design + Post-graduation* at the University of Aveiro. This course gave me good insights on strategic thinking, project design and management, aesthetics and typography.

*Post-graduation is a fancy way of saying i dropped out of my Masters’ Degree.

 

2013–2015

The startup years. I dropped out of my Masters’ degree to co-found a design start-up: FHOLD, the cardboard laptop stand that revolutionised procrastination worldwide, but not quite.

 

2015–2017

In the post-startup life i’ve worked as a Graphic Designer working for Lavva and Tekna Creative, while designing for TEDxAveiro. It’s also during this time i’ve started writing and photographing more seriously.

 

2017–2019

I started working as a Digital Product Designer for Gen Design Studio. I was assigned to the Airtel India and Deutsche Telekom long-term projects. By this time i realised digital is the true one for me.
