And there's me...

A short biography

My name is Vinicius Lima. Weird name huh? In case you are wondering, it's Brazilian and pronnounced vee-knee-see-oosh for the name and Lima, like the Peruvian capital, for the family name. I am originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and I am a native Portuguese speaker.

For me, design always seemed to be a natural path to follow. I was always interested in organizing things at home, in putting things together and in admiring good-looking things. I love minimalism, simple shapes, effortless elegance, traveling, dogs (I had a beagle named Nick for 11 years).

I design both graphic pieces (logos, print materials and websites) and 3D pieces (interiors, furniture and objects). And that is what makes design a really fun and versatile field. I become able to think about so many different things at the same time.

Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, MI. I teach courses in Print and Web/Interactive in the Department of Art and Design. I have also been working on my own creative research and I am always trying to keep up with the latest updates in the design world.
