Profile photo of Filipe, wearing mirrored sunglasses and a bushy beard.

I am a graphic and web designer from Madeira Island.
I like technology, movies, videogames... and sometimes music.
You may find some interesting photos on my instagram feed, although I am not much of a photography enthusiast once in a while there is one that I have to share.
Recently I started developing skills to design better interfaces and interactions focusing on accessibility and inclusion.
I am constantly trying to improve my skills and myself!
