About me

Internet presence is what you make it, but you have to know how to market yourself. Work with Illustrator and Designer Ricardo Amado. Passionate about arts and all around it, Ricardo tries to find everyday inspiration and yet comfortable while living his daily life. He never had a degree or anything similar in Illustration or design (just web design) but his avid spirit for learning more and express himself makes him go after what he wants. Since then, he has been an active member of the global creative community. From his student years to the present, Ricardo has immersed himself in a variety of creative fields from, graphic design, web design, illustration, marketing, art curation, organizing art festivals and more. Ricardo as the poised business beast that he truly is beyond hype. On his spare time he enjoys listening to some good music, hanging out with his friends and eat cookies.
