Lead Web Designer

Everything sounds better with a Portuguese accent.

Nuno Faustino

Lead Web Designer

Before embracing web design, Nuno was a scriptwriter and worked in creative design and advertising in his native country, Portugal. His websites reflect these prior work experiences on the screen: the sense of storytelling, the clean aesthetics and layout compositions, and, above all, the understanding that a website is a vehicle to get a message across. 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. That was the case when he was a freelance web designer in New York City, and it continues to be so now that he lives in Meadville and is a part of the Bull Moose Marketing team. A firm believer that developing a website doesn’t need to be intimidating or stressful, Nuno’s commitment to making the process accessible, painless - and even fun - guides his work from the first meeting with prospective clients to launch day and beyond.
