Thank you for stopping by! You can call me Vini and I love building experiences for the web. I believe everything we do together should be accessible and inclusive. download my resume.
all work, no BS — we're kind — we're helpful — we respect each other's time — we build something to be proud of — Ruined by Design
I fell in love with interactive design a long time ago. I started building simple websites for friends and family using Flash when I was 17 years old, using a very rudimentary implementation of ActionScript2 I had learned by myself. Since then, I expanded my interests and broadened my skillset, but the drive behind all that is still pretty much the same.
Apps and gear I use
I use Visual Studio Code for all things web related and I love it. I've used Atom before but I think VSCode is just faster and easier to customize.
I use MacOS's default Terminal and I'm not a hardcore command line user, but I love using aliases and I can't recommend them enough.
My browser is Firefox Nightly because I love their developer tools and the fact that it doesn't eat up so much battery (I'm looking at you, Chrome).
I love Android and my OnePlus 6T is as fast as I would like any phone to be. I fully surrendered to Apple and now I have an iPhone. I kind of love it and iOS feels mature enough that I don't miss most things about Android at this point. Still a work in progress.
Little known facts
Brazilian, born in a tiny little town amid the Atlantic Rainforest, grandson of farmers, and proud of every single tiny victory I've accomplished.
I was a certified Architect abroad (with a Masters!) before moving to the Creative Technology field. I carry a lot of analytical thinking and design strategy/planning from the great experiences I had back then.
I am a biker, a gamer, an avid reader, and an amateur watecolourist.
I hate Cilantro, I can't even explain how much I hate it.
