New face

Those that know me in person know that I have been very drawn to minimalism in the last months, perhaps even a year. It basically means that I am on a quest to a more meaningful life with less.

I don’t remember exactly where I heard about it first, but I know that, in a very short period of time, I binged on dozens of episodes of the “The Minimalists” podcast. They focus “on making room for more: more time, more passion, more creativity, more experiences, more contribution, more contentment, more freedom. Clearing the clutter from life’s path helps us make that room.” They inspired me to get rid of the clutter around me.

While seeking the path to less clutter and more of what really matters, I decided to change my website, and that is why I have a new face. The design you see now was always my goal, but I ended up getting distracted by a different one - a noisier one.

It took me months to get to a stage I was happy with, including a few hours (throughout maaaany months) discussing and brainstorming about my new logo. I am lucky to have friends with good taste that happen to be graphic designers. [Thank you so much, guys!] These two friends are working on my logo and I am so grateful for it. I will share it when it’s ready.

The website is built on format.com, which focuses on professional artists, designers, illustrators, photographers, and models. I am very happy with it. I have ventured on learning HTML a year ago (which I successfully completed through codecademy), but, for now, I decided to focus on building a website that really reflects what I want to share, therefore I needed a platform that would make my job easier and still provide a clean, minimal and functional website to my visitors.

I do hope you like the change. I still have my many doubts and insecurities when it comes to photography (specially analogue photography), but this is a step towards changing that. Of course I will need your help, so please do share and make sure you check my instagram.
