I AM VITOR BASTOS, OR JUST V!TOR, A CREATIVE STRATEGIST AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY DESIGNER BASED IN PORTLAND, OR. MY WORK FOCUSES ON DEFINING TRUE IDENTITIES, DESIGNING STRATEGIES AND CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE.

 

I HAVE LIVED AND WORKED IN BARCELONA, BERLIN, LISBON, PORTO AND SÃO PAULO WHERE I WAS ABLE TO CONNECT WITH DIFFERENT MARKETS AND CULTURES. MY SPECIALTIES INCLUDE GOAL SETTING, CREATIVE DIRECTION, PROCESS FACILITATION AND MY WORK IS BASED IN EMPATHIC CRITICAL THINKING.

I HAVE WORKED WITH A VARIETY OF BRANDS, NON-PROFITS AND MUSEUMS DEVELOPING CREATIVE STRATEGIES IN THE SHAPE OF PRODUCTS, EXPERIENCES AND COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES BOTH DIGITALLY AND IRL. WHILE I’VE DONE AN EXTENSIVE AMOUNT OF WORK IN SPORTSWEAR, EMERGING MARKETS AND SOCIAL IMPACT, EXPLORING NEW CHALLENGES AND SYSTEMS IS WHERE I FEEL MOST COMFORTABLE.

 

MY BACKGROUND IN CULTURAL IMMERSION AND EXPERIENCE WITH DIFFERENT COMPANY SIZES ACROSS THE WORLD, MEANS THAT I AM HANDS ON X-FUNCTIONAL STRATEGIST WITH A PERSPECTIVE ON BUSINESS, PEOPLE AND PURPOSE

 

I HAVE ONE SIMPLE RULE: AS LONG AS YOU WANT TO LEAVE A POSITIVE MARK IN THE WORLD WE CAN MEASURE THE IMPACT WE CAN DESIGN TOGETHER.

 

HOW DOES THAT SOUND TO YOU?

WITH EMPATHY WE RECONSTRUCT THESE VALUES INTO PERSONAL STORIES - ASK HOW IT FEELS -
