Olá! — Hello!

and welcome to Resilient Standards, the portfolio of digital designer Helder Barão. Working out of Lisbon and available for freelance projects. Previously I was the Design Lead for Product at Muzzley, one of the most promissing portuguese start-ups based in Lisbon and Silicon Valley. Before that I've been fortunate enough to be part of Kwamecorp, a forward thinking creative agency, working with brands such as Samsung, Impossible, Google, Fairphone and others, collaborating on the creation of amazing products.

Designer as Translator

I’ve been working amongst designers, developers and managers for a while now. Communication between team elements can be harsh. Although the profile of the intervenient is the key, clarity in the design hand-off is crucial. Technical specs and style guides are as important as the design itself. Art becomes xxhdpi, @2x(+) or XVGA. Light becomes code and layouts become short films. Until we get it done. For the sake of the user.

Motion is Beautiful

People go WOW when things move. But there’s a lot more to motion design and animation that the wow factor. Besides making the next killer promo, music video or corporate moving shebangs, motion design has become a quintessential feature of modern digital applications, guiding the users, solving and evolving complex interactions. In the end: making it fun to use.

What you didn't read above

I’m a lighthearted and humorous designer working in the realms of the internet, digital technology and innovation since 2006. A fan of modernism with an utmost respect for the heritage of graphic design. A lover and creator of animated pixels. I’m looking forward to join a team of likeminded, design driven individuals creating the products of the future. I'm personally interested in the fields of video, streaming media, music, lifestyle and branded content.
