I'm Antonio Braz, a Kelowna based interactive designer, enthusiastic team player who's passionate for branding and code. I worked in the field as a Designer and Front-End Developer for over four years in Brazil until I decided it was time to augment my education further. This drove me to the Digital Design at Vancouver Film School (VFS) where I gained valuable knowledge in project management, practical colour theory, typography, wireframes, problem solving, team building and theoretical approaches in design. This has enhanced my workflows and thus heightened my production capabilities, bringing value to design by identifying how brands, products and experiences actually serve people and cultures. The exploration of ideas to discover unexpected outcomes, and giving tangible form to an idea has become the basis for which I think on a daily basis.
I love my work and enjoy each new challenge as I receive it. I look to maintain a healthy balance between functionality and visual impact in all of my projects and believe every design piece can be it's own unique piece of art.
I am always challenging myself and keeping up to date in whatever skills I need to help my employers or clients to achieve their goals.
My dream job is located wherever there are challenges and the opportunity to work with a committed and highly demanding group of creative professionals.
Specialties: UX/UI Design, Branding and Front-End Development.

People Say About Me!
I knew immediately after meeting Antonio that he was going to excel on my team. Antonio makes a great first impression and also follows up with quality work that exceeded my expectations. Antonio was much too skilled for the role in which he filled on our team. Despite that, he would take the opportunity to learn new things and show his excellence in small projects that he would volunteer for. I am continually blown away by Antonio's ability and keen eye for design and UI work. I've followed a few projects he's worked on since his time on my team, and I would certainly partner with him in the future if I have any design needs. Aside from this, he's a pleasure to speak and work with, and a great team player. I would love to work with him again in the future! - Derek Gieselman
