CMS Helmets — Directing a new age of Hight Tech Performing helmets for motorcycles

Company: CMS Helmets
Role: Creative Direction, UI&UX, Web Design & Development 
▸ Date: Dez – Fev 2019
▸ See it live: www.cms-helmets.com

A completely new line of helmets brought a new kind of identity to the CMS brand. The briefing was clear — “The market is changing as well as our brand, and we want to communicate that to the customers”, so the goal was to redesign the culture of the brand and develop a brand new website.

I was responsible for directing the new visual of the brand from product and environment photography to the website and social media communication. It was selected a brand new font and created a completely new brand style guide. The entire website was designed from scratch and it was used WordPress and Elementor to build the live page.

Sentir Aveiro —
Building a booking platform for a tourism company

Company: Sentir Aveiro
Role: UI&UX, Web Design & Development
▸ Date: Jul – Sep 2019
▸ See it live: www.sentiraveiro.com

Sentir Aveiro is far more than a tour company, they are a concept created by people who feel the city and the surroundings in a very particular way. They are an ideal: to provide visitors with an unforgettable experience.

“I challenged myself and their Founder to completely redesign their website and turn it into a booking platform that could work on autopilot mode. They were spending a lot of time and effort in the booking management, so I come up with a turn-key solution focused on the user experience, on booking management and of course on inspiring people to come and visit Aveiro.”

Owlbert — Creating & Managing an e-commerce store for women accessories

Project: Personal
Role: UI&UX, Web Design, Branding
▸ Date: Jan – Jun 2018

This project fails so it isn’t live now. However we still have the website template integrated with Shopify to sell if you want 🙂

“In partnership with @Joana, we decided to create an e-commerce store of women jewelry and watches based on a #dropshipping method to make extra money. From the branding to the entire store design & development and social media, we covered everything.”

“It took us 6 months to launch the brand. This was the most challenging project to this date, because we didn’t know almost anything about fashion, Shopify, social-media advertising, etc. So it was a journey of deep learning as well as self development.

CSgoall — Projecting an all-in-one web platform to the Counter Strike GO community

Company: csgoall
Role: UI&UX, Web Design, Branding
▸ Partner: @lucas.silva
Date: Abr – Out 2015

CSgoall was a web platform where you could buy, sell and exchange CS:GO skins as well as playing roulette and a jackpot game, all of it in a single place. 

Until that date, I just had designed websites, so it was the first UI&UX project and it was a tough one. I really needed to rearrange my way of thinking and work for the first time with wireframes, personas, user flows, UI style guides, etc. Once again, dozen of hours viewing videos on Youtube, reading articles and tons of written pages.

 From there to nowadays I’m still being applying most of the things I learned in this project in my design process.

Principles
Close attention to details in every step of the project

I really care:
When it comes to design I’m very demanding with my own work. I care with the process, with the visuals, with the contents and almost never can delivery my first version of something.

Versatile and responsible:
Every startup or company is different and I always start by understanding the real problems of my clients. It is my work to know enough about the business and the vision to come up with valuable solutions.

Straight to the point:
I believe in collaborations and constant communication. There are no ‘big reveals’ that turn into big waste of time and money.

Clear communication:
Inefficient communication or poor organization are the main reasons why most projects don’t succeed so I make sure to keep my clients updated.

Clients curated:
I take on a limited number of projects at the same time. This quality control means I can give each one exactly what it needs – focus and time.

Get things done:
Sometimes unexpected things happen during the process but my priority is to always find a way to handle it, so you and the project don’t suffer negative consequences.
