I’m Pedro – specialized in Product Design based on a collaborative user-centered design process. Currently, interested in exploring and developing Design Systems thinking to generate consistent product experiences.

I’m driven by the sense of exploring and distilling new concepts, in order to produce design that effectively and elegantly solves user and business challenges.

 

In the past...
