About me

Hello, my name is Antonio Frade. I am web designer although sometimes I do some graphic design, 3D modelling and infoarchitecture.

In addition of all design related matters (architecture, interior design, flyers, typhography, etc.) I used to enjoy reading, playing the current PS3 or XBox shooter o burning calories in the tennis field.

Currently I am avaliable for freelance or in-company positions.

Do you like my work?
