Discover the interview of Diogo Gama Rocha from Omdesign in Matosinhos, Portugal.
How did you become designer ?
Soon I realised that designing would be my future. I was always a curious person and a tireless observer and the world of creativity, art and industry were always part of my life, since the day I was born. I inherited my passion for art from my maternal grandparents, who were both painters; and my fascination by industry and management came from my father.
How would you define your vision of design, your style ?
We don’t have a defined style. Fortunately, we have been able to reach clients of different areas of activity and the results of our projects have been really motivating. There are no magic solutions for this area, therefore we believe that only working everyday, always focusing on excellence and accuracy, we will be able to be well succeeded. Personally, I think it’s also extremely important to be ambitious, bold and to do better day after day. If we have a truly positive attitude, the success will come naturally.
For the future, what are your professional projects
The experience of these more than 20 years of Omdesign activity tells us to keep working everyday on everything that makes ourselves better and that contributes to improve the projects we sign, pushing us to do different and to innovate constantly. Only this way we can continue overcoming our customer’s expectations and keep challenging and surprising the market, as we are doing since 1998.
What do you like the most in your job ?
For me, Design is and will be a fascinating world. I appreciate the fact we face new challenges everyday and do not have routines, which is an advantage because it develops our ability to improvise, to innovate and also allows us to challenge ourselves day after day. Considering that Design and Advertising areas are in constant evolution, there is a continuous need to analyse each brand and always present them with the best solution that respects their goals. We work on a daily basis the most important thing of our clients’ companies: their brands. We develop a strategy to reach our customers’ goals in a genuine and objective way. All of this makes our job even more fascinating!
