ABOUT_WIDE_R

I am a freelance digital artist based in Lisbon and a creator for all screens. With a strong background in motion graphics for advertising, I work across all mediums combining techniques to make beautiful animations.

Back in 2007, the year I finished my Communications & Multimedia degree at Universidade de Trás os Montes e Alto Douro, I moved to Lisbon to specialize in Motion Graphics at ETIC.

Spent the first 3 years of my professional life working for web/advertising agencies as an Interactive Designer, essentially, coding animations with ActionScript for websites.

In between, I had some freelance work that helped me develop motion design skills. In 2012 I've started my first job as a full-time motion designer at a TV Sports channel working on several broadcast graphics projects. After a year I joined Nebula Studios, working close to advertising agencies on the production of all kinds of motion graphics/animation projects.

In 2016 I moved to Porto and founded a studio with my friend João - Check it Out Studiowhere I became a director, producer, and manager.

From 2018 to 2020 I lectured and coordinated the Motion Design course at Lisbon School of Design (Porto).

Currently, I'm working from Lisbon as an independent director and motion designer for clients worldwide.

I am currently based in a beautiful place called Gesso Ateliers. An amazing and bright coworking space and I'm lucky to be surrounded by so many talented people.

 

As a digital art creator in a competitive market constantly evolving, I always seek new projects, software, and techniques to push up my levels.

Being able to work remotely most of the time, I've embraced digital nomad life for the last few years.

Every Wednesday, I play drums with my friends - we've done it for 10 years, and we still plan to become a band :D

In my spare time, I like to read a book, swim, ride my moto, hang out with friends and nice people, have a beer and chat, and go to the beach (or just the comfort of my couch and blankets on winter days).
