Lisbon Nearshore is an independently owned human-centered technology & digital company, that combines Nearshore Development and IT Staffing Services, customized to the needs of businesses.
I'm proud to be starting a new professional path as part of this amazing team. More info in the near future.
The project I started in October was unexpectedly shorter than planned. My participation included competitors research and expert reviews, user flows, wireframes, and prototypes.
In this period I was a freelance UX Design consultant and UI Developer, while investing in UX Design education on Interaction Design Foundation: HCI - Human-Computer Interaction, The Brain and Technology, UX Research and Emotional Design.
EDP DSI - Direcção de sistemas de Informação, belongs to EDP, considered one of Europe's major electricity operators and Portuguese major business.
In projects using Waterfall methodology, my responsibilities were Research within the working groups, Translate functional and legal specifications into user flows, and Build wireframes and functional prototypes.
I also worked with Agile methodology, where my key responsibilities were UX/UI problem solving to improve usability; and Responsive UI patterns development (HTML, CSS, Bootstrap) to speed up development process.
SAPO started as a search engine when founded in 1995 by Aveiro's University. SAPO organized and sponsored Codebits, an annual hackathon held in Portugal, that ran from 2007 to 2014.
Job responsibilities and on job training included research, focus groups, card sorting, usability testing, wireframes and UI concept and development. My work was always focused in ergonomics and the best practices.
I was integrated in a multidisciplinary design team, side by side with UX, Usability and Accessibility experts, top Web and Mobile Designers and genius Software Developers. Therefore, working at SAPO was the most rich and formative work experience I’ve ever had.
SAPO Internacional included the portals for Cape Verde, Angola, Mozambique and Timor Leste. Integrated in a multidisciplinary team, my job had two different yet complementary focuses, Community Engagement and Visual Communication.
On those platforms, my key responsibilities were to know and connect with the users, promote User Generated Content within each platform, manage Users Feedback and provide Support to empower the community.
I also developed UI Design solutions for blogs and corporate accounts customisation, Responsive Marketing Mail, and Graphic Design pieces for marketing campaigns.
For the last few years the job market went crazy on naming and describing web design positions and responsibilities. I was trying to make sense of it all, as I wanted to learn how to communicate myself better.
I was a senior Web Designer, multidisciplinary Web Designer, Front-end Designer, UI Developer, UX/UI Designer and coder, and probably more. None seem to communicate me properly.
So I've given up naming trends. I'm a kung Fu Web Designer.
I love gardening, in the balcony and indoors, where I keep too many plants while humans can still move around. Caring for plants gives me super-powers.
I enjoy pocket photography while walking around the city, and visual and sound experiences through exploration puzzle video games.
Live long and prosper. [ Vulcan salute ]
