Michel Ferreira –
You’re holding the box
Designers hold the key. That’s what we’re lead to believe in. Every day, all the magazines, all the articles tell us to believe in ourselves, trust our instincts and sell our clients and our businesses the beauty of design-led mentality. What if you could prove your instincts, ideas? Or disprove completely? Or even not know what is the effect? Would you be willing to take the jump and test to see if your instincts are really fail-proof? At Booking.com, the designers explore the data available to their fullest and test their ideas at a level never seen before.
Michel has been working with design since 1997 and has had the chance of working with a variety of clients, from ground-floor start-ups to multi-national corporations all over the globe - such as Booking.com, Coca-Cola, MTV, Telefonica, NBA, amongst many, many others. With a passion for testing and a drive to always learn, he now works at Booking.com as a Designer where he tries to help the users through the use of design, copy, technical improvements and even workflow experimentation.
