I love design, coffee and dogs. But I have a cat.

A bit about me

Hey, I am Paolo, a product designer with over 10 years of experience in the industry.

After graduating from college, I packed my laptop (and snacks) and embarked on a job journey that took me far from home to cities across the world like Lisbon, Dublin and San Francisco. Living abroad presented me with an array of challenges and rewards that have sculpted my unique design perspective.

During my career I had a chance to work in different environments and teams, spanning from design agencies, to corporates giants and dynamic startups. My expertise ranges from user-research, wireframes, product design and product vision. At present I'm working undercover at a stealth startup, shaping the future of the food industry.

Beyond the pixels, I’m slappin da bass, indulging in a marathon of "The Office", or trying to learn something new.

I am always excited to connect with people or explore new opportunities, so don’t be shy, drop me an email.

My Approach


I observe and engage with people to understand the problem to solve.


I analyse and synthesize the information gathered to define the problem.


I start generating as many ideas as possible based on user needs.


I start prototyping design solutions for each of the problems identified before.


I test the prototype to monitor the response, earn user’s feedback and iterate on it.
