I’m a designer of many things, from buildings, to magazines, to games. But I love web design the most a, because it perfectly combines two passions of mine: aesthetics and coding. It is also incredibly versatile, since a website can be anything from a magazine or a game to an art gallery. And at its best it can also be a full and unique aesthetic experience.
I graduated from the University of Brasilia in architecture and urban planning. Soon after, I drifted to game design and developed a taste for coding and technology. Then illustration, and graphic design, then I started my masters in aesthetics. But by then I had tasted the sweet nectar of algorithms and coding, and long hours of debugging. It all came together when I decided to focus on web development where, more then anywhere else, the beauty and the code walk hand in hand.
web development + graphic design
These are some of the projects I've been working on to teach myself web dev. Feel free to take a look.
My formal education in architecture and urban planning provided a solid base for design. After that, I taught myself many skills for practical reasons: from typography to programming games in python, and even web design. As I recently decided to focus more on web development, I took advantage of this new era of on-line courses. Listing them here, I believe, will allow you a good sense of my skillset on the field.
