Work experience

I’m a freelance designer and illustrator. I started as an industrial designer in glass production, both semi-automatic and handmade glass at Marinha Grande. Later, working in the polymer industry, I’ve designed some merchandising products and stands projects for exhibitions and supermarkets.

Over the last few years I've been working in print production, both offset and digital, as a graphic designer. This led me to some illustration jobs that inspired me to continue working as an illustrator. Since then, I’ve been investing more and more on this area, through the creation of small editions and customized illustrations.
