About me

Hello again! My name is Bruno Santos (in case you haven't seen the 100px sized one on the front) and I'm a Digital Designer from Lisbon who loves to explore, experiment and have fun with the web.


Design, Multidisciplinarity, Experimentation, Code and the ability to Google my way through anything are my best traits. I really want to get technology and design into the hands of people through new forms of interaction in digital experiences.
Websites and apps are getting boring, design has reached a weird state where "pre-formatted" blocks can be arranged to make digital interfaces that are too familiar — and even though there is obviously a time and a place for them — I feel like it's taking the joy and the excitement out of the web. That's why I always try to create by breaking some rules and focusing my research in endless experimentation while abusing digital tools as much as possible to hopefully bring some of it back.


Currently (as of July 2019), I just finished my Postgraduate in Digital Experience Design and I'm starting a new chapter working at With Company in sunny Lisbon, where I hope to grow as a designer and bring some great projects to life while working with great people and have some fun doing it.
Let me know if you want to chat!
