You can call me Greg.
I think humans are amazing.
When we work together, in effective teams towards the same goal, incredible things can happen.
I feel good when I see something in another person that they don’t see in themselves,
and I’m able to tell them about it; it’s even better if I can help them figure out a way to attain that.
I want to spend money and time on cool side projects, making the world a better place, rather than buying excess luxury items for myself.
I am easy to work with, but I need people to listen to me. My main goal is to solve real problems through design
with simple and beautiful solutions, while always learning something new in the way.
I live for challenges.
I have worked with Art Direction and Design for 8 years, along with many photographers, designers, developers, illustrators and copywriters,
and halfway through that I went to Hyper Island in Stockholm to challenge myself and my work. It worked really well.
I am now a multi-disciplinary creative with a strong strategic sense, able to work effectively within groups in tech labs,
motion graphics, mobile & web design, UX design & prototyping, branding, concept and developers.
I'm always pursuing a deeper understanding in all those areas, while always keeping my passion for what
is beautiful, simple and effective.
I speak fluent portuguese & english and intermediate swedish, italian & spanish.
