Since 2022Pedro CerqueiraAssociate Communication Designer

How did you get into design?

[I’ve always loved being creative, communicative and working with tech. But let’s just say I didn’t want to code as a full time job, even though I’m pretty good at it!

To keep being nerdy.

WD-40 lubricant. Or a camera. And maybe figma.

WD-40 solves any problem.

Where do you find #inspiration?

Usually in my past life experiences (Who Wants to be a Millionaire style).

Productively procrastinating.

If you weren't designing, what would you be doing?

Probably doing med school or something that tries to understand the depths of the human brain. Or more likely selling my art on the beach.

Peru (the country).
