Dear Ecosia Team,
I am Ricardo, a Berlin-based graphic designer and visual artist. I was informed about your open position and couldn't miss the chance to apply, so I created this brief presentation of myself and my work for the purpose.


For the past 4 years I've been employed in a berliner agency - Merlin - where we work in several different fields of design and communication, from the initial brainstorming to the materialisation in print, digital, web and video formats.  You might already have driven around in (or hit by) a Taxi branded by us with the berlinovo campaign, or even went to the Festival der Riesendrachen (Giant Kite Festival) in Tempelhoher Feld that we organise every year.

Previous to my current job I have worked in an wider range of communication, from Sydneys music scene, to Bangkok's cinema productions, giving me a diversified set of creative tools. Also living in several different countries and continents and working in international environments has given me the capacity to communicate fluently in different languages such as english and spanish, and a bit less fluently german, being my native language portuguese.

Throughout the years that I have been working as a graphic designer, I have taken several music related projects, both as an employee and as a freelancer.

I have also developed relevant work in the fields of editorial and corporate design, for businesses such as small publishing houses or NGOs to Art Hotels and Real Estate.

Since the end of 2014 I have been employed at Merlin, working with local Housing Societies and Energy Suppliers accross the country, two of the key topics of our contemporary society. Defining creative strategies for our clients to carry on complex processes such as the energy revolution by promoting e-mobility and the investment on renewable energies.

I work on a daily basis creating and adapting concepts and strategies to communicate. For creating such means I have professional control over some of the Adobe Creative Tools such as Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign.

I have made video edition in the past, using Final Cut Pro, but haven't yet had the chance of a software refreshment with Premiere. 

Recently I have learned how to use a 3D program - Sketch-Up - with which one can create from objects to spaces and animate a tour around or within it.  

I hope I can join your team and together embrace the cause and principles behind Ecosia. I believe my experience and knowledge can be a good asset, as well as my commitment, flexibility and willingness to learn and adapt to new methods and processes that can bring us the results we work for.

Thank you for your time and looking forward to hear back from you!
