MarcelloDamasceno

Thanks for stopping by. I'm Marcello Damasceno, a Visual Designer and creative thinker, and this is the portfolio website. Originally from Brazil, I've made the San Francisco Bay Area my home base in 2006.

I love all things technology, and I've been tinkering with cutting edge tools since I can remember. Back in 1992, I helped launch Bahia Hoje in Salvador, Brazil -- the first fully computerized daily newspaper in Latin America. Life is much easier now, folks -- can you imagine producing a daily paper without the internet? We had QuarkXpress on Macs, CorelDraw on PCs, some proprietary pagination system, all tied together using a couple network protocols (that was early nineties, of course) ripped on imagesetters using Solaris workstations? By the way, I was only 19 years old at the time.

From Newspaper Design, Art direction, interactive DVDs (in 2001 when most people didn't even know what a regular DVD was) to Motion graphics and 3D to multimedia pieces using Macromedia Director — you name it, I've done it.

I have been designing websites since the late 90's, and since the iPhone and the iPad came along (and brought with them the modern web), I've been playing with mobile and responsive web design. A couple of years ago I made the switch to designing with code, and haven't looked back ever since.
