Hey, I'm Jules. I design and code.

I am designing a macOS and iOS tool for people who want quick access to their design system's design tokens, and building it with SwiftUI.

At work, I design and develop tools for social media managers.

I ship products with a focus on helping software teams adhere to existing UX patterns. I lead the creation and promotion of new patterns too, when necessary. I also introduce and promote consistency in our product by being a core member of our UI Kit working group.

I am a design systems advocate. I promote working with design systems and org-wide systems adoption. I truly believe design systems bring product teams together to architect and maintain purposeful and orderly products.

I often think about the role of systems in an org, how they serve users, evolve, and how they are constantly affected by outside forces.


About

I was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. I currently live with my partner and our two cats in Chicago.

I like spinning records, playing the guitar, skateboarding, and building mechanical keyboards.

My pronouns are they/them/theirs.


Speaking

I participate in dialogues about community and design.


Friends in tech say...

In every instance, they provided thoughtful, specific feedback and truly cared about making it a growth experience for the students they worked with... Their dedication to helping the design community grow and flourish in Chicago is a prime example for our students, our other mentors and critics, and designers across the city.

Jules was an empathetic mentor who got to know me as a person so that they could guide me towards opportunities that fit with my personal and professional objectives. Jules' thoughtful advice and wealth of industry knowledge was invaluable to me as a young designer!
