Fabio is a graphic, web designer and enthusiast from Porto Alegre, very south of Brazil. He is the co-founder of a design studio called Zee and runs a blog called Abduzeedo where he shares his thoughts, cool sites, and tutorials.
One of the major takeaways from the presentation was the fact that Brazilian designers have a completely different learning process from American designers. English is not a major language in Brazil and many of the design resources that we cherish have not been translated to Portugese. This results in Brazilian designers needing to intensely study images and their associations in order to figure out ways to create them.
