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 awards, as from the Museum of the Brazilian House [mcb], from the Vladimir Herzog Institute, and from the Latin American Design Awards, in addition to having works selected for the design biennial of the Brazilian Association of Graphic Design [adg].

I currently work as a UX designer at  Apple, focused on designing the user experience for digital products and systems. 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 culturally-driven visual projects for the local art scene, such as works for the phonographic and cinematographic areas, cultural events, comic books, and other endeavors. In addition to that, I work on travel sketchbooks for fun.
