hello, i’m celso hartkopf, a brazilian designer from the city of recife, and i hold both a bachelor's and master's degree in design from the federal university of pernambuco [ufpe]. since 2008, i've formally worked as a designer, having had experiences in several areas, namely graphic design, branding, illustration, web and advertisement. over the years, i've established myself in the digital product area as a product designer.

among the projects I've developed, some received prestigious awards, for instance, from the museum of the brazilian house [mcb] and from the vladimir herzog institute, in addition to having works selected for the design biennial of the brazilian association of graphic design [adg].
i currently work as a product designer in a multidisciplinary team at CI&T, focused on designing user experience for digital products and systems – whether it's mobile, web or other devices. there, i can collaborate in the understanding and definition of the product requirements, facilitation of workshops for co-creation, user research, wireframing and ux definitions, interaction, interface and ui design, high fidelity prototyping, specs and handoff for development. 

in my spare time, i like to develop more culturally-driven visual projects for the local art scene, such as works for the phonographic and cinematographic markets, cultural events, comic books and other endeavors. in addition to that, i work on travel sketchbooks for pure fun.
