Ricardo studied graphic design at IADE and graduated in 2000. He has been drawing since childhood, probably because of his mother who drew charcoal portraits in her spare time. Photography came from his father's side, slowly growing on him, every time he borrowed the family camera.
In his career as a designer, he went through agencies such as Brandia, Shift Thinkers, Leo Burnett and Bates. He created Ana Aeroportos de Portugal signage, the corporate identities of brands such as Banif Bank, Zaask and Geostar's, and several other design enterprises. His work has won awards at the Creative Club of Portugal, Prisma Awards, 141 Creative Awards, Epica Awards, and New York Festival. He worked both in small Brand Design Studios and big fat agencies. Currently, he is a designer with the size of his own independence. Luckily enough Ricardo has been able to bring his photography into design projects, focusing on crystallizing moments that tells stories.
