Design Skills

As a designer, I’ve working for clients like the NFB of Canada, Galician Goverment, TVE (Spanish public television), ABANCA (a spanish bank), etc. I have a great knowledge of typography, user experience, interaction design, usability and accessibility. I get involved in projects of all size, building complex design systems, prototypes, wireframes and final artwork, using all kind of digital design tools such Sketch, Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign, etc.

I’m member of the Galician association of design (DAG) since its fundation, working in the defense and promotion of the design and organizing events, currently from the board of directors.

Code Skills

I’m a graphic designer but soon started to write code, because I’m one of these guys who think web designers must know code. I started writting some basic PHP and ActionScript thanks to a personal project called letrag.com, a typographic site started in 2004 and stopped in 2011 that becomes to one of the most visited typographic sites in spanish and galician languages.

Currently I can write good quality code in HTML, CSS, vanilla javascript and PHP. I’m very active in the open source community, releasing many of my projects. I also collaborate with the PHP-FIG, defining some standars to the PHP community.

You can check my github profile to see my code.

Coursers and Talks

Occasionally, I teach, speak or write about design and web.
