I'm Victor, a designer living in Rio de Janeiro.
I was born in Alagoas, a state in the northeast of Brazil. After moving to Rio, I graduated from Pontifícia Universidade Católica (PUC-Rio) in Design.
I work for Huge, where we design digital products for some of the biggest companies in the world. In the two years I've worked there, I've participated in some great projects, such as the new website for Itaú – the largest bank in Brazil. I've also designed websites and apps for Vale, Oi, Abril and other important Brazilian companies.
I believe that hand-crafted code can lead to great products and better user experience. So, when I have the chance, I enjoy coding my own designs. I'm an enthusiast of the web, of its openness and standards. I also have a obsession with web browsers, mostly concerning new web features and legacy IE marketshare (I read about it every single day).
Besides digital design, I really like Japanese food, skateboarding videos (specially the ones directed by Spike Jonze), alternative rock and good Brazilian music. Last year, I spent two weeks in Tokyo and I plan to live there some day.
This website is where I experiment with type, grids, palettes, CSS techniques and so on.
