Frame your vision with my work.

I´m a UX/UI and Branding designer based in Oporto.

With a visual and communication design degree, I have worked since 2008 with medium-big companies and international corporate brands.

Following technology and trends since 2009, I have been making a career in Visual and UX design mobile apps for tech startups and companies. Updating my skills in that field, lately, I´m more involved in tasks like user research, empathize, ideation, testing, user interface, visual and branding strategy and design.

I can be as involved in your project as you need me to be, from the seed of the idea until de validation. I am most interested in the visual product app with user interaction concerns. I seek user-based problem-solving to understand needs and provide clear and impactful human-centred solutions design.
