Hi, I'm Goncalo Andrade
I'm a User Experience Designer based in London, and I believe that Design is all about coming together to solve human problems.
I've been here for a few years now, but I'm originally from Portugal. This means my accent might change from British to Canadian or American at a moment's notice, which is a lot of fun.
I enjoy reading comic books and playing Dungeons and Dragons, like the nerd I am. I am also almost always up for a pint and a chat down the pub.
I absolutely believe that Design is all about solving problems. So I work together with great companies to deliver products their customers find delightful as well as useful in their lives or businesses.
I work closely with you and your stakeholders and product managers, development and testing teams, users and customers; while always keeping your business goals and objectives in mind.

What others say about me
I’ve worked with Goncalo at Aviva on a couple of projects. Goncalo designed experiences to simplify complex financial problems, such as helping people understand how their pensions work or designing a tool to show much money they would have annually in retirement, which we tested in the lab to get feedback. I’ve also mentored Goncalo when he conducted user testing. He’s a quicker learner, wrote excellent discussion guides, moderated extremely well, and produces reports with actionable findings. Goncalo will be an asset to any team, as he’s smart, a good teammate and fun to work with.
We hired Goncalo in a freelance capacity to lead a critical phase of UX re-design for a b2b web app, as part of a larger project involving approx 15 people across 3 Product & Technology teams. He successfully delivered prototype solutions (navigation, information architecture, workflow) to improve usability in several key areas, liaising extensively with users and stakeholders throughout the process.
