I’ve been designing and coding web sites and apps for the past seven years, for start-ups with self-service and enterprise products. It has been a blast! I’m now doing product design for the authoring experience at Contentful. I’m still learning every single day.
Product design as an hollistic practiceMy take on product design and how I conduct my work
I believe thoughtful product design addresses people, context, and value as a whole. The key is to understand them early on through the right kind of research.
Most of my time is spent asking questions, sketching diagrams and wireframes, drawing testicles on post-its, and running ideation exercises. I also do a lot of co-designing and co-programming.
Designer and developer at SumUp, Blippex, Archify. Back home in Portugal I founded a design co-working studio called Jungle Collective with 8 other designers, while conducting research at Universidade de Aveiro. Just before that I finished my Master’s degree at ITU and ran a workshop at CBS, both in beautiful, cozy Copenhagen.
