06 Jan Gonçalo Perdigão – Motion Graphics Designer
The term multi-skilled is not ill-suited to describe Gonçalo Perdigão. Our passionate Portuguese Designer is well versed in almost all aspects of design and post production. Innovative and creative, Goncalo loves a challenge and as such has worked on a diverse range of projects that really does make him stand out from the crowd.
With a background in Science of Communication, Gonçalo quickly discovered his passion for Motion Design in his native Portugal. He went on to gain specializations in Multimedia Design, Editing and Motion Design before beginning work at Brandia Central and later Illusive Studios in Lisbon. Goncalo’s appetite for new challenges brought him to the UK and he joined the books in February last year.
One of Gonçalo’s many admirable feats is being self-taught, especially earlier on in his career. Gonçalo now boasts an exceptional degree of software proficiency. He tells us his main tool is Cinema 4D, as well as being skilled in After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop and Premier
2014 was a successful year for Gonçalo, a definite highlight being a dream role at MPC, a top 5 client he was determined to work for. Once there, Goncalo worked on two projects for Guinness and Argos where he headed up the Motion Team. Alongside this, Gonçalo also worked for us with DMI and VCCP extensively last year. Projects include British Gas for VCCP and advertising for Capita through DMI. Click for larger images.
He recalls his work at DMI being particularly enjoyable, as it gave him the opportunity to revamp an existing project the client was struggling with. Relishing the opportunity to add his own personal touch, Gonçalo also managed to find the right solution to meet the expectations of the client. Gonçalo thrives when adapting to his client’s needs, something he achieves not only efficiently but stylishly too.
Creative, innovative and a genuinely lovely guy, why not get in touch with us if you have any upcoming projects for 2015? We are confident Gonçalo would do himself – and us – proud!
