I grew up in Covilhã, I'm the youngest son of a railway worker and a middle class factory worker.
In middle school I did not know what I wanted to do unlike most artists I know in this area, who claim they were already born with skills for graphic design or motiongraphics.
I started to perceive the layout and concept of the objects around me as well as its purpose while I was growing up. I believe it was by my father's influence that I felt the need to create wooden objects and work with iron material as well, consequentIy I started to realize that design was very important in my life. Only later I began to realize I couldn't perform some of the work due to lack of space or material, I think those obstacles had influence on my journey into the digital world. With digital support I can create what I want with the textures I desire without having to leave my room or even my chair (I'm not a lazy guy!).
My work is widely based on my life experience and its developed under the thought that graphics are a valuable tool in communication and therefore should be taken in consideration in every designer's powerful mind.
I know I have a long way ahead me and I want to continue to learn more and more!
I work in Coimbra as a Communication Designer, I practice sports, I frequently listen to Radiohead, Jimi Hendrix and Queens of The Stone Age and I like to watch European movies.
