WORK EXPERIENCE

Working at BRPX has been an great opportunity to use the wide range of skills in my training, as well as to learn new ones. From simple product pages, to complex react web apps; mentoring start-ups on their projects usability, to revamping their pitch decks; event and portrait photography, to live-streaming events.

I was part of the founding team of the Graf.ly MVP, as Lead Designer and also Project Manager for awhile. We worked closely with Público newspaper in a market validation partnership, and the project came to be selected for WebSummit 2016 alpha start-up program, were we spent a day promoting and gathering feedback non-stop.
As a part of the Labs team, I engage frequently in brainstorming sessions, do research, and fast prototyping concepts for products and solutions.

MEO – Serviços de Comunicações e Multimédia S.A — Web Designer

December 2005 — March 2016/Lisbon, Portugal

SAPO is Altice's web division in Portugal, that provides a large network of media websites and other content-sharing services in several countries. I had the privilege to collaborate in a lot of projects with very talented people, which contributed immensely to my professional growth. I went from Junior to Lead Designer in charge of the visual identity of the Portal's homepage and core-services (Mail, Blogs, Photos, Videos, etc).

The homepage required prioritizing speed and user experience while accomodating the needs of the commercial and editorial teams.
Mail is a core service of SAPO with vast demographics posing a great challenge in usability and accessibility. I was part of the team for seveal years and my roles ranged from the user interface design to product pages, as well as marketing and community engagement.
Blogs was one of my earliest projects, I was tasked with the platform's re-design twice. I also authored a few blog templates and helped the team continuously fine-tune the interface. To this day I still use and cherish very much this blogging platform.
