João Martins is 25 years old. He was born and raised in Aveiro and still lives there. His father is an architect and, from an early age, he taught him to express himself through drawing.
João has always had a very close eye on the design and aesthetics of objects, so design came naturally into his life. In 2019 he completed his master’s degree in Product Design and Engineering, and since then, he has been working as an industrial designer in household appliances company Flama, SA. In addition, he has been working as a freelance designer for Think Bold Studio, where he designs glass bottles for spirits. João is constantly looking for new challenges and ways to acquire knowledge; that’s how he decided to participate in the Roca ODDC contest. He’s glad he made that decision!
