ABOUT ME

Hello! My name is Rui. I'm a San Francisco based designer with a duo degree in graphic design and industrial design. Most of my works focus on branding, visual system, editorial design, UI/UX, and motion graphics. 

 

In my latest thesis project, I have also explored ways to integrate cutting edge technology like 3D printing and AR into graphic design to deliver an unexpected and innovative experience. I firmly believe that technology is changing the way how we design and communicate.

 

My favorite things: the moment when I have the first bite of my favorite food, when Bali (my cute chubby cat) sleeps next to me, fly a drone to see the world from the birds' eye, 3D printing.

 

The nomination of my favorite designers goes to Charles and Ray Eames.

 

Thanks for looking at my stuff, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
