I am Pedro Dinis

ground

Being a webdesigner, graphic designer, social entrepreneur, or practitioner of Qigong (Chi Kung), does not define me completely, nor does my name... I am much more than the sum of all the parts.

When I work on the digital world time flies by so quickly, and when I practice the mind-body internal arts time slows down, becoming spacious...

As an independent social entrepreneur, my attention and dedication is on working for the human collective evolution, for a better world for all beings.

WEB DESIGN

I work on the internet for over 20 years, on the nineties web pages were very basic and static, then after the millennium Flash technology emerged and the web became dynamic with innumerable possibilities. Now with hundreds of different gadgets to access the internet, the websites must be adaptable to multiple viewports, professional and SEO - Search Engine Optimised.

In these two decades i made more than 80 websites developed with HTML, CSS, Javascript, Flash and PHP and used many programs and platforms for websites building, but Wordpress is the one that I continue to use since 2008.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Freelance – commercial work

Since 1998 i do freelance graphic design work and I have made a wide variety of formats: posters, flyers, business cards, catalogues and booklets, stickers, banners, t-shirts... and also made official road sign posts.

Lagos Youth Centre – Web & Graphic Design

I worked from the start up to create a buzzing centre for young people organizing events and building youth community, I also produced all the in-house Graphic design work (over 150 posters). I created the Web & Print Design Youth Group to provide Training and apprenticeship to young people and in 2007 we produced all the design for the biggest Lagos Youth Festival.

Social sector and teaching

Sharing knowledge and voluntary work is an important part of my life, and I often contribute with digital work for social institutions. In 2017 I made the design for ASMAA's "Libertar Energia" campaign, to promotes clean energy alternatives and fight against oil drilling in the Algarve - Portugal.

LOGO DESIGN - Brand Identity

I developed a Consulting and Guidance process to discover, together with the clients, the Identity of a given project and re-enforcing the brand values. This is a valuable asset not only for creating digital work but also for a company business strategy.
