Hya, I’m Leo Almeida. In 2006, I founded a design studio for small businesses called ANAUE, in downtown Sao Paulo, Brazil. There is where I learned most of the lessons I’ll be sharing with you on this blog (and book), on how to make a design project cost effective and successful.

My twelve years of industry experience have seen me change hats between designer and entrepreneur. Along this journey, I’ve worked with a wide range of companies, including everything from a two-person band to 20-million-plus user startups between Asia Pacific and Latin America. I’ve worked with Freelancer.com, Terra Networks and Universo Online to name a few.

Let me know what questions and/or feedback you have for me. I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can. Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you.
