About me

I just finished my degree in Product design and development, wich gave me striong basis in design strategy, engineering and the process of making any kind of product , starting with the sketches and ending with the finished product in our hands. In my opinion, the designer must always be communicative with the engineer, the production line and everything else. Nothing is separate: for a good product, nothing quite like working as a team. I am willing to move out of the city as well as the country, as I feel like my life is just now beggining. I can't wait to work in a company where I feel comfortable and at home, teach people what I know and constantly learn how to improve myself as a person as well as designer.

Technology and Product Design

Universidade de AVEIRO

Aug 2012 - May 2016
  • My college degree gave me notions of materials and ways to process them in the industry, as well as the restrictions for such processes as well as costs. It gave me basic notions of engineering as well as design, always focused in the customer and the way they interact with our designs. I learned software such as Photoshop, Illustrator and Solidworks (CAD 3D) , rendering and drawing. Overall it taught me the design strategy to start a product from nothing, through research and studying, through sketching and development, trying and failing, changing what is wrong, testing and prototyping until the end of the project, where the product we first sketched is finally a real thing.
