Ricardo dos Santos Ramos

UI/UX Designer

Beja, Portugal
The shortest path between two points is a straight line. A product or service isn't that easy to go on a straight line. Sometimes you need a 90º angle to find product-market fit. And that's where I come in handy, not only thinking about how it may look good but also how can I make it more efficiently.
