Big list, in no particular order: design, type design, interaction design, design theory, ethics, philosophy, literature, arts, information technology, education, sports, cultures, nature, human development, free software, peace, love and harmony.

Tiki!

I came across Tikiwiki a few months ago, while I was looking for open-source wiki, forum and cms systems to use in my master project. I was very happy to find out that Tikiwiki offers these and many more features...

Since then I have been working in building my web-site using Tikiwiki. Work is still in progress... as soon as the web-site is open to the public I'll post the link here.

I have also been reading a lot about free software and would like to get more involved and to contribute. Tikiwiki developers: if you need a designer (to make icons, themes, interface design, logo...), feel free to contact me, it would be a pleasure to help.

Education

Design
I graduated as graphic and product designer at the Esdi (Rio de Janeiro, Brasil) in 2003.

Communication planning
I am currently finishing a masters degree in Communication, planning and design at the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd, in Germany.

Type design
In september 2005 I will continue my studies at the master Type&Media at the KABK in The Hague, in the Netherlands. This is a one-year course in type design (= fonts) and type technolgies. If you are interested in this subjects you can take a look at their wiki.

Bitmap fonts

Some of my bitmap fonts are available commercially at Ultrafonts.

At EstereoDesign.net it is possible to dowload one of my bitmap fonts for free.

I have lots of other fonts done, and am planning to release some of them under the Creative Commons license until the end of the year.
