Revitalising an old supplier with a new way of approaching energy EDF Energy, as an old player in the energy supply market, is well established in its ways and practices.

Redesign the retirement public website I had the chance to redesign the pensions and retirement section of the UK website for Aviva. The previous one was confusing to the users and not structured consistently, with plenty of duplicated content and jargon. This old site was structured from the business point of view, listing out the […]
Redesign the public website I had the chance to redesign the investments section of the UK website for Aviva. The previous one was confusing to the users and not structured consistently, with plenty of duplicated content and jargon. The products themselves are quite complicated, so they needed to be explained in as simple terms as […]

Pleased to meet you
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.
What others say about me
Working with Gonçalo was a very good and profitable experience. As any project, the SIMI project had its moments of greater stress with hard deliverables to be accomplished in short periods of time.
Gonçalo was always up for them and never failed showing extreme dedication and motivation levels. Adding to this, Gonçalo is a very easy person to deal with: he is very understanding, creative and implements (design and interface) in record speed times, which is really useful in a project with short deadlines. I hope we meet again one day in our professional lives.
I am happy I had a pleasure to work with Goncalo. He is the person with very strong opinion, UI designer with very good web development skills.
The things I like most about Goncalo is that he always tries to see things in not standard ways which leads to great and unique results.
I also admire Goncalo because he’s not afraid of trying new technologies which often leads whole team into acquiring new knowledge and skills.
