Designing a sustainable spray bottle


It started with a very specific product - water-soluble solid detergents. It turned out to be a spray bottle that can be used in many contexts and for many years. In gardening, in refillable products, etc.

Faster single-family residential concept

The requirement was only one: to build simple single-family housing quickly, safely and effectively.
This was our answer, with a design concept in which an outer shell is quickly assembled with pluggable elements that already have sufficient protection for water, temperature and noise.
These are three images that reveal the most important of this project, in which all parts of each housing are manufactured in an industrial yard and later transported to the construction site.
The expected final costs will be about 75% of a common construction solution, while the expected completion time for the work is 30%.

José Vitória Arquitectura - Logo, Branding and More

Here is a small sample of the work done for one of the most prestigious Portuguese Architecture offices. José Vitória Arquitectura has existed for more than twenty years, produced a gigantic number of projects and built work. In response to the desire to rethink its image, we have developed a new solution for the logo, graphic language, branding, presence on social networks and even some objects, such as the company's cars. The process was based on a rich dialogue with the company, the discovery of the primordial axes and the consolidation of language and communication.

Testing a vintage lens with very bad reputation - Super Carenar 28mm f:2.8

Super Carenar 28mm f:2.8 is a vintage lens with a terrible and depressing reputation. Mine is korean made, and despite not being the best lens in the world, can take some quite acceptable photos. The center is relatively good but the corners are quite dim and blurred. No big chromatic aberrations are noticed and for video, and with a good sun-cap it turns out to be a good lens. Using f: 5.6, good results can be obtained, with f: 2.8 the bokeh not particularly interesting. The quality of construction is above average for this generation of lenses.

Other tests of archeology and photographic mechanics I've done:
