about

Hi,

 

Hi,

I'm Danilo and I'm a Lead Experience Designer based in São Paulo, Brazil.

I’m passionate about design and its positive impacts we can have on society. I'm a multidisciplinary designer focused on creating meaningful products and experiences both physical and digital, collaborating with teams from research and strategy to ideation and development. I’m always looking for new knowledge and new ways of looking at a problem, exploring new ideas from post-its to sketches and prototypes.

Over the years I have been working on different projects across many industries, designing solutions like cars, smart devices, packaging, interfaces, user-experiences, strategies and more. I had the opportunity to work on strategic projects for companies like Ford, Samsung, LG, AB InBev, Natura, and also help some startups to improve their solutions through user-centered design.

During my career, I've won some national design contest like Talento Volkswagen Design and Renault Experience Design Contest and I've received some national and international design awards such as European Product Design Awards and Idea Brasil. My work has been featured in innovation websites like Fast Company and international design books like Green Packaging Solutions, and I was quoted in some national news like Folha de São Paulo and Globo.

My previous work was helping Volkswagen Design team in Brazil craft their next generation of cars and before that, I was helping The Marketing Store Worldwide design dozens of creative toys and promotional products for the consumer market.

Today I'm a Lead Experience Designer at Questtonó, where I lead cross-disciplinary teams coming up with innovative solutions in areas such as strategy, industrial design, service, and user experience, working for both big companies and disruptive startups.
