Aimtal team spotlight — Andrej Braga
Meet Andrej, Senior Graphic Designer based in Brazil! When Andrej isn’t busy perfecting designs, logos, and color palettes for clients, you can find him listening to Metallica or reading about astronomy. Get to know him more in this spotlight interview:
Where were you born, and where do you live now?
I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I also lived in Amsterdam for one year and am currently located in Rio.
What are your favorite ways to spend your free time outside of work?
I like to draw, read about science in general, and also learn about astronomy. I'm always listening to music and love to hang out with family and friends during the weekend.
If you could choose to be an animal, which would you choose?
Definitely a bird of some kind. Maybe a hawk. Being able to fly must be something out of this world.
What are you currently binge-watching?
I’m not in the middle of shows at the moment. But the last one was “For All Mankind”.
Name one marketing mistake many brands make but can easily be avoided.
Forgetting existing customers. Sometimes companies are so focused on attracting new customers that they forget the ones that are already loyal to the brand. When they are not heard, that can be a big problem, since they are capable of spreading a lot of negative feedback.
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Calm, curious, and friendly.
You are hosting a dinner party and get to invite 3 famous people (from any time period), who do you choose?
Carl Sagan, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Albert Einstein.
What are your goals for this year?
Personally, I would like to take a big family trip, possibly to another continent.
Professionally, I have plans to always improve in my profession, learning different techniques and different processes.
If you had to pick one artist/song to narrate your life from this point on, what would it be?
Metallica. Their lyrics are always strong and remarkable, with dynamic and very expressive melodies and riffs.
What is one thing you believe every marketer should know?
Attention to detail is key.
How do you take your coffee?
I don’t drink coffee, but enjoy the smell of it.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an illustrator. I began drawing seriously when I was 8 years old.
What is your favorite part about working for Aimtal?
The remote work aspect of Aimtal is one of my favorites. The way the team is so collaborative is also amazing.
What’s your favorite place that you’ve traveled to? Which destinations are at the top of your travel list?
I would have to say at least three places. Bruges, in Belgium, California, and Berlin, Germany. I have on my list:
- Atacama Desert, Chile
Name a quote that you live by.
“So many books, so little time.” - Frank Zappa
