It’s a professional one. It’s also a relation of gratitude because scar-id store gave me the biggest opportunity so far. Today, I have my brand represented in the store and online.

What do you think about the Portuguese design scene?

I think it’s ok. A lot of people talk about this topic, but I think that people usually only see the bad of everything. I think that Portuguese design in general is start to reborn in a new and different way. Now we only have to think in different and new ways that can amazing people, and understands that design must play other games, games that are changing all the time.
