My main area of focus is Interaction Design and Typography. My passion lies in designing systems (UI/UX and Branding) and with each new project, I try to push my creative and visual ideas as far as I can while maintaining the functionality of my designs. I like dogs, acai bowls and Spotify’s discover weekly playlist.
