Hello, my name is Ricardo Macedo but I go by Dado Pontual as well. As a designer and art director, I’m passionate about creating and thrilled on working within a multidisciplinary team to solve brands’ design and communication problems. With more than 14 years of experience, I've worked with brands like P&G, OldSpice, Head&Sholders, Pantene, Duracell, Pampers, Gillette, Danone, Vitarella (food industry), Pitú (Brazilian distilled spirit), Nossa Beer, and much more. Besides design and art, my other passions are food styling, photography, technology, typography, and crafting. And my favorite hobbies are LEGO, traveling, and desserts.
Right now I'm working as a Creative Manager/Art Director and alongside other 4 Creative Managers, we take care of a team with 20 people. It is a challenge to juggle creative manager roles while also doing the "hard work" of an Art Director but I enjoy both parts equally.
Right now I'm also specializing in UX, UI, and other knowledge areas connected to these 2 in my postgraduate course of Interaction Design for Digital Artifacts.
