I live and work in Lisbon.
Recently, I graduated from "web design & interactive" in Lisbon School of Design.
Logos are what represent brands or corporate identities. Logos define Brands and should foster immediate audience recognition. I believe in designing timelessly logos.
Well-designed logos will never allow an audience to forget the brand.
Sometimes what is the response to the request, just pops into our head. However, this cannot be taken for granted, so I believe in making an active approach to discover it. In graphic design there are no limits. Looking for inspiration in graphic design is to obvious. In order to create truly successful design, one must find inspiration elsewhere. That's why I make an effort to go further finding the inspiration in photography.
In photography, I have several ongoing projects involving the search for primary forms of image capture, as in the light-gathering process, as in the handling process, or digital. Conceptually, I try using the technique to achieve simplicity, clarity and, precision of ideas.
I believe that my portfolio speaks for itself, but you decide, once you’ve explored this website. I would love to chat with you about your next branding, communications, web site or photographic project.
