About Me

Just so you know...

I'm Adrien - a Creative Director and multi-disciplinary designer/developer with an architectural background. I have always appreciated asymmetry and the modern, minimalist design aesthetic where Less Is More, and Form Follows Function.

Architects and Web Designers define structure through the use of positive and negative space, and visual hierarchy. Both design with the end user in mind while making the final result visually appealing and useful.

I use a hybrid Design Thinking/Human Centric process to challenge assumptions and solve problems in a creative and innovative way. Most importantly, I know how to help clients redefine their business problems, identify alternative strategies, and achieve their goals.

In addition to design, I have experience coding in HTML, CSS, JavaScript (React, Node, and Vue), Java, PHP, and Python.

The rest of my time is spent on creating music, snowboarding, mountain treks, and exploring wild places. I also curate a creative experiment known as Slow Shutter Speed for architecture, art, and music.

What's up with the Ravens?

My father's ancestors originated on the Island of Corvo in the Azores. "o Corvo" means Crow or Raven in Portuguese. My father always considered Crows and Ravens good luck, and would call out "Hello brother!" whenever he would see one.

I find the large, black birds fascinating. Crows and Ravens are highly intelligent, and have the ability to recognize faces and use tools. They are also able to teach those skills to their offspring.
