Nelson in a few words

For the past 20+ years, I’ve been working both client and agency side and teaching design in schools
and universities. I worked on more than 500 projects throughout my career. What have I learned?
Every project has its own unique challenges and this is what I love about design: Constant passion to find solutions that make people’s lives better.

I enjoy the whole UX process starting from the research phase through to creative design with a focus on UX but happy to work on delightful interfaces or design systems.

Visual Designer  - As a freelancer

London, UK

October 2016 - November 2017 (1 year and 1 month)

For the past 16 years i've been working both client and agency side and for the past two I was a teacher at a Design School based in Portugal. Faster than my own shadow. Worked more than 500 clientes and almost 5000 projects throughout my career. What I have learned? Every project has it's own challenges, and that is what I love in Design. Work well under pressure, on (noisy) open spaces and on multiple projects at the same time but I am also used to small team environment. Very autonomous and organized. I love anything UI related, but designing apps and responsive websites is what I do best. Graphic Design, Social Media or Advertising are my other skills. Usually I prefer a Mac with Adobe CC but also know my way around Sketch.
