Hi There! My name is Patricio Toro S. Visual designer based in Munich.
I'm a Chilean designer who crossed the Andes to end up living near the Alps. With over 8 years of experience, I've worked on a variety of in-house brands and for large companies with ambitious goals. I thrive in bringing ideas to life. I began my career as a product designer, but I've since fallen in love with a more holistic and human-centric approach to design. I enjoy being a generalist with a focus on craftsmanship and prototyping. I believe that keeping things clear and simple is the best approach to creating meaningful and coherent design systems that convey an understandable message to audiences. I also love the concept that a digital product is a living thing that can adapt and evolve over time.
As a Visual Designer with a background in graphic design and marketing, I consider storytelling to be a significant part of our job. I approach my work with a big-picture view of how a product or project can tell a compelling narrative. I'm a driven self-starter and am passionately obsessed with design's role in making the world a better place. I feel comfortable working on a range of projects from designing native apps, illustrating on paper, or crafting prototypes and collaborating with other teams. I like to think of myself as a kind, curious and happy person who brings positivity to any environment I'm in, and a considerable number of people have told me that I make really good pizzas.

I was born and raised in Chile (you probably know that already). However, I was born on the 29th of February, which means my birthday occurs every 4 years. In other words, I will turn 18 by 2056.
My favorite movie is "12 Monkeys", but my favorite movie trilogy is "Back to the Future". If you know something about these movies, you may notice the pattern here.
My favorite drink is the Negroni. Simple, classy. But a good wine or a beer is always welcome.
For almost all of my childhood, I was 100% sure (and probably all the kids in South America were too) that the name of the droid in Star Wars was 'Arturito' (Little Arthur) instead of R2-D2. It was only when I saw the original trilogy in English that I realized it wasn't his real name. #noshame
And last but not least, music can say a lot about someone. However, having a favorite song can be somewhat of a mission impossible. So, here is a list of ten songs that you should listen to at least once in your life. You can thank me later.
