Oh, hi!

My name is Guilherme, and I’ve been designing digital experiences for more than 15 years. For the last few of them, I’ve also managed product design teams at HelloFresh and Moonfare.

I love to develop young talent and help seasoned designers find their way into career and personal growth. I’ve done the whole spectrum of design work, and I’m equipped to deliver excellent design quality and build teams that scale successfully.

I also draw, brew, bake and try my best to be a great dad and husband.
