Do you remember the moment you knew you wanted to become a designer?
Did you go to design school? Do you think it was necessary to get to where you are today?
Well…I did my high school (before college) on a Multimedia Design course. Then I went to university (here in Lisbon), where I studied Design & Multimedia. So yeah, I think this was the beginning, where I learned the basics of design, animation, and web design. It helped me get started for sure, but when I entered the market as a professional, that was where I learned the most. And, the most important thing for me is being proactive and exploring every day…only by working hard and being curious every day, we can get our skill levels to mature and evolve.

This time, is a whole new story. I’m in a new team, new projects, new clients. I haven’t met the team yet…just by video-calls. I really think that. 2020 is a year where many challenges were given to everyone.
