Let me give you a personal insight on Patrick. Who is that guy with roots from Brazil and Germany, and what motivates him in his profession as a designer? Together we are going to figure out what makes him unique.
I met Patrick when we both started studying in Iserlohn, Germany. Patrick signed up for communication design, I did for photography. Soon I understood that he had already acquired a remarkable amount of expertise in his field up until that time. We became friends and eventually realized together that we both strive for a more creative environment, more inspiration, and cosmopolitan flair. The decision to move to Berlin simultaneously and proceed with studying there in each of our courses was an easy one - knowing that Patrick would join me in this new experience gave me a lot of confidence.
The reason is a very simple one, and I might sound blunt saying this: He is probably one of the kindest, reliable, skilled, and supportive people that I had the pleasure to meet. This all happened in 2014.
Now, six years later, we have become close friends. We finished our studies in Berlin and moved to different places - Zürich and London. And even though there is a seeming distance that separates us, I know that I can count on Patrick. Nowadays, I consider loyalty rather unusual. But I call myself an incredibly happy person working in the creative industries and knowing that someone like Patrick has my back.
Patrick is probably the most multi-talented person I know, someone who is always motivated and devoted, manages to juggle between work, friends, and family and makes no one feel left behind. Ever since, I have been admiring this quality in Patrick, and I am not lying when I say that he is genuinely an extraordinary personality. He has the power to make you believe in yourself and your work and will always bring the best out of everyone.
