Introduction

Hello! Oi! Grüezi! Hej!

My name is Alex, born and raised in Lisbon with a multicultural background — Swiss, Danish and Brazilian. I am currently based in Sweden (Stockholm) and previously worked in Switzerland, Portugal and England.
                  After concluding my Bachelors degree in Visual Arts with first-class honours in the UK. Later, I joined a Master's program at the Basel School of Design in Switzerland to extend my training in typography and iconic theory and deepen my skills in the practice of visual communication.
                  Previously worked at Fjord, Part of Accenture Interactive (Zürich, CH) and Bold Scandinavia, Part of NoA (Stockholm, SE). Thus, I have work experience with clients from multiple sectors/industries such as Accenture Industry X, Scandinavian Airlines, Zimpler Payments and others.
                  As a multidisciplinary designer, I have a diversified and holistic approach with conceptual thinking, user-centred and design-driven creative processes. My focus is to solve design challenges through visual communication intersecting brand, service and digital innovation.
