About Ricardo

I focus on innovative solutions while identifying gaps. We reach the goal together by working as a team.

01

Solutions for clients of all sizes and types.

I’ve worked with private companies, startups, education institutions and government. Two decades of experience have taught me how to bring creative solutions to complex problems. No job is too small or big. As you can see in my portfolio I can be as creative as you want or I can align and follow strict brand guidelines.

02

Solutions for Digital, Print, UX/UI or Social Media

I’m a brand specialist. I understand how to comply (or create) branding guidelines. In fact, I have been responsible for brand implementation to both small startups and large organisations (some with thousands of staff). I will be able to help you with design issues related to print, digital, web and social media.

How I work

I focus on solutions (not the problems). I use design to improve user experience and client communication. I am here to work with you as a team and to advice you on best practices (not to tell you how to do things). If you are happy we are happy! I base my work on three things:

I ask lots of questions

I approach new jobs with curiosity. I want to know every detail related to the task. Its purpose and objectives. This is the best approach to identify gaps and issues. Once all details have been identified appropriate solutions can be brought to the table. I am here to solve your problems, Not to showcase how a great designer I am.

Teamwork

Design is subjective to personal taste. This is why my job is to work with you as a team. Get to know what you need and what you want so that the best possible solutions can be produced in a timely and affordable manner. I am here to bring the most suitable design solution for your organisation/business.

Clear Communication

Clear, concise  communication is key for a project to be successful. I will let you know all details related to the job. In this way all parties involved know what the end result is. I work hard to avoid confusions and wrong expectations. When issues arise, I take immediate action and fix them as quickly as possible.

01

Branding

I can help with the entire branding creation and its collateral. Including logo, business cards, letterheads, templates and guidelines.

02

Print

This includes brochures, guides, flyers, posters, banners, packaging, and any other print collateral. I have extensive experience working with printers. Have produced extremely complex guides that had hundreds of thousands of copies and were distributed world wide.

03

Web & Digital

I feel comfortable designing for digital channels. I have produced corporate websites with hundreds of pages. Have experience designing landing pages, web forms, homepages, BOTS, User Experience (UX), User Interface (UI), Information Architecture (IA) and social media.

04

Podcasts

I have designed for podcasts and audio files. I have also produced two podcasts (innovatordiaries.com and TIPS). I can also help you produce, design and create your own corporate podcast. I have experience managing teams and people. This is added value I bring to any job as I know how to communicate clearly in order to get the job right since the start.

I believe in the power of asking the right questions, clarifying needs and being flexible, while giving priority to important objectives and goals. I seek to provide the highest-quality, most effective solutions for clients, while supporting their organisation goals.

Design & communications are my passions. They've always been. This is why I give 100% to every project I work with.

Podcast & Consulting
Surviving the first 2 years (and a global financial crisis)

I produce two podcasts.

Developing the podcast has enhanced my abilities to listen intently (to understand what the other person is trying to convey), ask the right questions (to ensure I gain the information I need), and the importance of storytelling.

Communication was clear and constant which was important as we needed to be informed in order to make decisions. I am happy to recommend this service to anybody

Communications

Ricardo's response is always prompt and his ability to solve any arising issues have been some of the key things I've enjoyed most about our working relationship. Despite looking after many clients, he is always available to answer my calls and emails, and made me feel like my organisation was a priority and that he genuinely cared.

I was a priority

Communication was detailed and on time. The steps needed to finish the project successfully were clearly outlined. The whole process was smooth and easy for us.

Ricardo has skills, knowledge, contacts and resources acquired over many years. This means he is able to solve urgent issues efficiently and quickly.

Lots of experience

We called Ricardo for help and he was able to find a solution very quickly, and that fitted our expectations and budget. It is important to work with someone that can understand your specific needs.

He understood our needs

Ricardo was able to come to the rescue, fixed our problems and did all the work for us. Thank you!! Awesome service and recommend it to everyone!

Ricardo came to the Rescue

Creating something simple that looks good is not as easy as it seems. Ricardo was able to achieve this while working with strict branding and rules.
