    Hello, I hope you are well. My name is Joao Monteiro, I'm from Portugal but living in London since January 2011. I came to London to do a master degree in Graphic Moving Image at the London College of Communication that I finished in December.

( ) Prior to it I worked as a designer at Mobbit Systems Portugal, where we created visuals to be applied to interactive platforms. I would consider myself a generalist who doesn't want to focus on a single task so I won't limit my creativity. My main tools are Cinema 4D, After effects and all the Adobe Creative Suite. I like to pick up on a project in the early conceptual stages and work it until the hand-in. Preferably within a team where we could discuss ideas.

    Visual Designer

    United States - Last active: 11/28/2013 - Portfolio: 4

    Hi There, have you heard something called ITP, Tisch School of Arts, NYU ? That is where I worked my gears to make sense of the interactive life one project at a time, for the last 2 years. Happy to be in New York after 4 years of running a technology camp in Chicago, showing the ropes of Robotics to elementary school kids, doing Graphics and Visual design, experimenting Art projects time to time and learning new Technology everyday. You might ask me where my name is coming from. It’s turkish, born and raised in Istanbul. Believe me New York City isn’t a big stretch. I studied Industrial Product Design back in Istanbul but decided to do something crazy and get into Lego Robotics and Teaching. I welcome anything new since then and couldn’t be happier about my decision. I am passionate about embedding virtual technology to our physical life. My last venture is trying to create physical interpretations of applications created with open source programming languages. As a spatial thinker I am constantly trying to come up with new ways to use technology in a more tactile way. From Product Design to Illustration, From Animation to Interactives , From Lego Art to Jewelry making. Anything and everything that I had touched and created is a reflexion of who I am.
