Before embracing web design, Nuno was a scriptwriter and worked in creative design and advertising in his native country, Portugal.

As a web designer and developer, Nuno has done work for multinational businesses and institutions like Getty Images, Doctors Without Borders and Dazed Media, but his true passion is to work with entrepreneurs, local business owners and community leaders who understand and appreciate the value of a website to achieve their goals and ambitions.
