Hello World,  I’m Pedro a ...
----- / ----- creative / designer / design researcher / strategic designer  / speculative designer / critical designer / graphic designer / printmaker / artist / ex- student @ FBAUL / ex- intern @ IN10 / ex- Strategic Design master’s  @ TU Delft / born in Portugal / now in Rotterdam / verified human / “I’m not a robot” / Am I not a robot?  
...but those are just empty labels, here is a bit more about me:

As the present is unstable and the future uncertain, my interest currently lies in exploring design as a problem-setting practice and as a strategic medium for critical inquiry and research. I focus on bringing together individuals, communities and organisations to reflect on present (and future) social, cultural and technological issues; Challenge the status-quo, co-imagine possible futures/ alternative presents;  Co-create preferable future scenarios

Main Activities:
  • Desk and primary research into trends, emerging signals, current and future needs, values and opportunities;
  • Creation of future scenarios and analysis of opportunities and risks;
  • Design and facilitate participatory workshops and co-creation sessions to envision and discuss future possibilities;
  • Translating research and insights into artefacts that inform decision-making and inspire action today (including roadmaps, vision scenarios,  customer journeys, product concepts, provotypes, design fiction scenarios etc).
