Hi! I'm Brunomonteiro.
I design and code things
to be used by humans
on the internet.
I'm a Hybrid: UI Designer and Front-end Developer.
Dear All, glad to have you here! I’ve finally managed to make time to build my own website! Wow! Well.. my web journey started right after thinking that one day I could be a game designer. Actually, it was what we all knew of “cool” in the digital area by the late 90’s, right before the internet of things explosion.
I’ve been designing, since the early days of Photoshop and Netscape (Yes, I’ve used the almighty Netscape Composer to edit HTML pages around 1998… Hey! I’m self-taught. Had to start somewhere). Damn, those days…
Today, as a maker, I design and build for everywhere once we are all using everything to access information on the web. “I love this game!”.
I’m teaching, as Assistant Professor, since 2014/15, the disciplines of “Digital Lab II” and “Interaction Media Design”.
I deliver, daily basis, the reality of the Web and the industry. From theorical to pratice sessions students are learning the foundations of Web Standards while understanding the power we have, as digital workers, to deploy digital products with enhanced clarity on the goals, of each project, through a handcrafted design and code process with cross context, browser and devices compliant envyronments in mind.
I’m based in Madeira Island, Portugal, working locally and remotly with inspiring clients and agencies all over the world.
I’m fluent in English (talk and written) and available to fly (scheduled in advance) if the project demands relocation (in experience I’ve been relocated for temporary work in: Bucharest(2x); Paris; Barcelona; London and Lisbon).
To keep things on track I’m using: Pommodoro technique (for focus and fast development); Email, Slack and Skype for communications; PhpStorm for code; GIT and Beanstalk for version control; To manage tasks I’m using Things app and app.and.co for time tracking and to invoice clients. Latelly I’ve started using monday.com.
