“I am recognized as being good at managing, leading and matching deadlines, but also being a team player.
Bring people together and motivating a team when working on a challenging project is what I love.
I am convinced that I will always have new things to learn in the field of Design, so I am constantly looking for new challenges, unique experiences and extraordinary people.
My idea of great product design combines a user centered approach with a strong and appealing visual language. With the experience I gained as a Senior & Lead Designer working directly with various clients, I am able to quickly adapt to new challenges.Being quite hands-on, I enjoy getting involved in the whole process, starting from ideation and conceptualisation to designing, prototyping, testing and shipping the ideas. My ideal work environment consists of a collaborative multidisciplinary team, always researching and playing around with new trends.
I'm keen on simple interfaces and clean design.
I try to keep myself ahead of the curve when it comes to the most recent web and design technologies...

I’m always open to a new challenge that’s one of the reasons I move to a different city from London to Porto and now in Barcelona, so like that I can develop my skills on different fields and do what I love.
Working at Farfetch Former (Lead UX/UI Designer) where I develop and build UX & Research teams, from 2 to 30 designers, also I’m responsible for all the design language at Farfetch, build and release the whole redesign website, www.farfetch.com is been a huge accomplishment for myself and for my team that time with 2 designers. In the end, I set up a new structure, I was Leading a team of Product designers between Porto and London.
This project gave me the chance to innovate the visual language and apply a lot of critical thinking in the process. We had to develop new creative solutions and use different specialists. At the end, we established a design pattern and a visual language that is now being used by all other platforms. It was a long and fascinating process.
