I was born in são Miguel Island, the biggest island of Azores, Portugal. Web developer and designer at Salworks and founder of www.visualcookies.com. Love design, technology and photography.
From photography correction to design creation, it’s imperial to use both keyboard and mouse combination. I’ve seen some people use the mouse more than they should and it’s really boring and I feel it breaks the work momentum. The keyboard shortcuts make things so much faster and smooth but it’s not enough for some operations, like sliders! Sliders can be used with the mouse [...]
I’ve always been a Microsoft guy since I was 6. It have been 27 years since. I’ve tried Mac and Linux several times but Windows, despite some terrible OS’s versions like Millennium and Vista, have always gave me a comfortable workplace for my web development and design needs. In the beginning, I could not made the switch because Linux was ideal for the server development but didn’t [...]
Yesterday started the Google I/O 2015 with the latest news and services from Google. I’m a big fan of Google and a early adopter of all their services, because they are just like good design, incredibly cool and functional (actually the design itself is something I believe they could improve, even with the recent material design). The conference was mostly based in Android M, Google Pay, The [...]
Another Salworks website coming out. The first version of Baia dos Anjos was a website I’ve done almost 8 years ago and it was time for a refresh. The bar and concept have also changed and improved with the years and this time the website focus on the three important elements: the events, music and social media. The new events will be announced in the front-page with poster information and the [...]

The MeCre art book is available to order at the MeCre website for 49 Euros, shipping worldwide included. The art book by Gaby Wormann, [...]
To celebrate Adobe Photoshop 25th anniversary, I’m reposting an old wallpaper made more than 10 years ago. “Future Mood” is a mystic and simple wallpaper that allows a easy and clean icon titles in the desktop, a wallpaper still made with the old Photoshop 6.0. After all this years, a higher resolution version is in order, unfortunately I believe this will only happen in the next [...]
Foi há dois dias que a Microsoft apresentou o seu novo sistema operativo Windows 10 e uma série de dispositivos e tecnologias associadas. Foi certamente uma lufada de ar fresco para a empresa e embora atrasados, pela primeira vez em muitos anos julgo que a Microsoft está novamente no caminho de apresentar algo de interessante a nível de software mas também de tecnologia, como é o caso do Microsoft [...]
«Interruptions are to developers what kryptonite is to Superman—they kill productivity and there’s a significant recovery period». It happens all the time while I work, and sometimes can be extremely annoying and time wasting. Why developers hate being interrupted” is an excellent article by Derek Johnson that talks about the developers work process and the constant interruptions they’re [...]
Design, música, cinema, fotografia e vídeo. Todos os anos são milhares de trabalhos em várias vertentes artísticas que servem para inspirar, motivar ou simplesmente maravilhar. Em 2014 tive o privilégio de assistir no cinema ao Interstellar, que presentemente defino como o exponente máximo de qualidade cinematográfica. A história, a componente científica, o grafismo e claro, a banda sonora. [...]
E já em 2015 que a nova versão do CMS personalizado dos clientes da SAL estará pronta. A partir do próximo ano, todos os novos websites estarão equipados com o novo painel de administração. Para além do «facelifting» visual, o novo painel de administração é mais leve e rápido de carregar e será responsive. Entendo que um website começa no seu back-office e é importante que esta mesma [...]
