More Consciously?

My relation with design dates back to when I was 8 and started experimenting with tools such as Fantavision (animation) and Octamed (sound) on my Commodore Amiga 500+. Those days were magic!! Since then I never looked at computers for anything else than creating.

A decade later in Lisbon, I was working for some companies creating sounds for visual narratives like websites, interactive kiosks and animations. These experiences ultimately took me to explore the visual side of things.

Moving to London I would spend three years in pure joy learning and deepening my knowledge in sound and visuals like never before. Studying a combined degree in Design for Interactive Media with Sound & Music Recording was a like a dream taking shape.

It was so inspiring and one of the wisest moves made in my life!

I create from the ground up audiovisual interactive concepts, brand strategies & identities, and help teams achieving meaningful results that add value to people's life. I try to do this in the most responsible and ethical manner.

Fast forward 4 years, I was leading a team of designers & builders responsible for the Xbox.com platform for the EMEA region (approx. 20.000 live pages for 21 territories). What followed was 5 years working with some of the industry's best people crafting solutions for amazing clients at AKQA. I learned a lot there and it's an unparalleled experience like no other up to this day where I witnessed the "digital boom" per say.  

I'm happy I've had the opportunity to help some of the most interesting agencies and studios. Not to mention the brands and people I've interacted with and helped me along these 20 years. It's been fun and I think we did some nice interesting things!

Today I feel fortunate to afford a lifestyle that allows for an good balance between work and play. I spent time fathering my amazing twins mostly surrounded by nature and take time to delve into interesting somatic practices. I feel dedicating time to things like meditation, movement, kundalini activation, breathwork, ice plunge and heat exposure allows me to stay connected with myself. Only then I'm able to approach what I do from a grounded, honest, passionate and responsible perspective. This gives purpose to what I do and I'm hoping to incorporate some of these practices into my relation with clients in pursuit of maximizing abundance and prosperity for humans and the planet.

DESIGN ETHOS

It's All About Humans

I design for Humans. I'm a human, you're a human and most likely the ones you're trying to help - your clients - are also humans. Even if we're on the Metaverse, we're all humans so let's be kind and honest. Only then we can trust and build relationships that flourish in bringing the best of ourselves to the world.

Strategy Is Everything

Who are we designing for? As designers, we must live and breathe your customer before designing for him, her or them. Together, we will identify and define the right approach to develop the solution before any execution of deliverables takes place. 

Acting As Gatekeepers

There are many ways we can do this, but what do we want to leave behind? Keeping that question in mind allow us to stay connected and in check with our most basic human goodness. It's our responsibility to act in the good interest of the people and the planet.

 HOW WE DO THIS?

One Size Doesn't Fit All

There is no standard approach to how we will work together. Surely methods and processes are useful but I honestly believe the best comes from a process of discoverability. Each one of us is unique and I try to approach a brand or idea with a blank state of mind asking questions before I’m able to lay out the best approach. 

Do We Sprint?

Usually two crucial factors play into this: time and budget. We can get there quite fast but it depends on a few things. Have a look at how Design Sprints work. 

Nothing Beats Experience

Above all, our relation should be based on respecting what each on of us brings to the table. By honouring the very basic principle of collaboration we make sure to make this as fun and valuable as possible.

If all this sounds good and you feel like I’m your kind of partner let’s have a chat.
