About me

“He’s great. Really!” Natália Sardinha (my mother) It brings me some peace of mind to think of myself - as it does to pretty much every other creative - as a highly creative and highly curious individual. I have undertook background studies in Architecture - at the Lusiada University of Lisbon - , and Industrial Design - at the Fine Arts College of Lisbon and the Milan Polytechnic, in Milan, Italy -. I have also taken some Masterclasses here and there, on various fields - e.g.: Copywriting; Art Direction; Narrative Techniques -. I have had 9-to-5 working experiences - e.g.: Exhibition Designer at the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum -, but as of late I have been working as a freelance designer, working mostly within the field of Graphic Design. I enjoy big challenges / inspirational people and projects / occasional strolls on the beach (not necessarily at sunset) / critical thinking Currently trying to explore new intersections, trying not to stop at red lights (every now and then).
