About

I’m an enthusiastic creative that has a clean and minimalistic approach to the art form as well as a high-contrast aesthetic on websites, apps or visual identities I create. I also have a background in web programming which helps me understand and build better and optimized assets for my beloved friends developers, every time I’m working on some UX/UI related work.

I believe that a designer must know a fair share of business, marketing and communication in order to become a valuable asset and partner for the clients. This is why I make sure that my brain is always busy with readings on technology, social media and marketing and that helps me improve my overall skills. Above all, I like to know how things work.

Talking about software, I’m comfortable with Adobe suite, from Photoshop to After Effects, but Sketch is where I shine bright like a diamond. WordPress is the CMS I use every day.

Whenever I have some free time I enjoy watching a good football game or follow some stages of WRC. I cannot conclude my introduction without talking about my passion for photography and video, which I’m constantly improving whenever I travel or attend an event.

I’m always interested in new projects, so feel free to contact me by email yay@pedrodesousa.com, twitter or instagram.
