My name is Helder Luis, and i’m a designer / problem solver currently working and living in Portugal.
I’ve worked since 1996 through notype, a company i started back then to do graphic design and multimedia work, along the years i’ve also created two notype sub-brands, LAB52 and Ethertype, through the first i provided advanced multimedia services (mostly connected to the arts and events) and through the second webdevelopment services. In 2013 i’ve merged the three brands and nowadays work individually providing the same services and consulting through my own personal brand name.
Individually I have been developing a body of work that spans from the commercial work as a graphic designer and multimedia developer to the artistic work as a mixmedia artist and experimental musician throughout the years.
Collectively i’ve been involved in some of the most interesting multimedia projects developed in Portugal and abroad.
Since 2010 i’ve been deeply involved in mobile development and design, working as a UI and UX designer and project manager for several clients.
In 2014 i co-founded There App startup. There is an App that will revolutionize the way we connect. It takes a different approach to how we see the world.
I live with my wife Helena, my daughter Elsa, my cat Mia and my dog Sparky (who is missing) in central Portugal and in my free time i like to read, research and give talks on various topics, listen to music (and play whenever i can), photograph and travel. I’m also very interested in permaculture design, sustainable living and organic and biodynamic farming.
