City Posters

2018 - present

I started designing posters of cities that I visited on my trips as a way to practice my Graphic Design skills.

Through these posters you can get a sense of my design aesthetic: I really enjoy creating minimal, clean, modern pieces and user interfaces. Every monument is striped down to the essential details.

UX Agenda

2018 - present

UX Agenda is a weekend project that started from my own pain point of finding a centralized place with all UX conferences, workshops, and meet-ups. This website is very simple and aims to be a useful tool for the UX community.


One Ticket Away

2017 - present

One Ticket Away is a travel blog where you can find articles about fascinating destinations that I visited recently. In a mix of photos and relevant insights, I tend to write down the memories of experiences, food, and points of interest.


Viagens Flash


Me and Bruno Barroso were the founders of Viagens Flash, a website that aggregated affordable travel deals from Portugal to countries all over the world. I also designed and coded it.

The project ended due to the lack of traffic and because it was really time-consuming to look for all the deals and create design assets to share on social networks.


Tint UI

2015 - 2017

I was the founder, designer, and coder of, a color-picker tool for designers to copy hexadecimal color codes from official color palettes.

This was my favorite personal project because I felt like I was creating something useful for the Design community and reached +10.000 visitors in the first month. More details about this project below:
