Hey, I'm Joao. If you like reading, please carry on. If you don't, that's ok too. Just skip to the bottom ;)
Firstly, let's get the awkwardness out of the way. I never knew how hard my name is until I moved to Sydney, Australia in 2005. Specially, because back home in Brazil, my name is the equivalent to John, the commonest of all names. So, here is a little workshop for you: Joao = Joe+wow See? Not too bad huh?
Now that's done, here's a little about myself. I am a graphic designer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. That city is amazing and I highly recommend a visit, but the world is a big place! Lots to see, lots to learn and billions of people to meet. I believe everyone you meet plays a part in shaping who you are. And teach you what you need to learn to take your next step in life. I've met some amazing people so far and I've been to some incredible places, but like anything in life the next step is always the most exciting!
As a designer, I really love expressing myself visually. Through my work, creating logos, illustrations and animations. And through my personal photography and art.
Finally, curiosity and diversification are two words I like to hold close to my heart. I believe that staying curious and keeping on diversifying are key to keep growing as a person. Because you never know where the next opportunity might be hiding!
