João Silva Dias

I’m from sunny Lisbon but currently living in London since 2015.

“I’m a Designer who discovered some time ago that User-centered design approach is much more fun and challenging that simply designing. Trying to keep up-to-date to what is happening in UX world I aim to Design solutions as simple, intuitive and accessible to the User. I also work with a different kind of media such as Print, Branding, Motion etc.”

Some key points of my profile are:

• Conceptualising solutions based on evidence until final delivery and documentation.
• Responsive web from a mobile centric viewpoint.
• Having a deep fundamental understanding of design systems, design processes and best practices of UX patterns.
• Being a brand guardian and using our guidelines to deliver brand conscious consistency across all mediums of design.
• The ability to work in an agile Jira driven environment to deliver high returns within tight deadlines while remaining cool & calm.
• The ability to work confidently both as an individual and as part of a collaborative team of peers, developers and product owners.
• Continuous improvement and innovation, bringing in new & fresh ideas which innovate.
• Whiling to learn constantly because UX never stops evolving as a discipline in the real world.
