Hello.

My name is Pourio. I am not an award-winning designer, tech-guru, or savant-like creative. Instead, I'm just a normy human being, husband, father, and somewhat average designer (who should've been a comedian) enjoying day-to-day life among creative giants in Silicon Valley. Won't you stay for the virtual donuts and coffee?

A Tribute to Sci-Fi: Vol 1 - A design celebration for geeks around the world.
Project Type // Graphic Design
Client // Personal
Date // 2016-2017
What do you get when you fuse a man, bear, and a pig... you get "manbearpig" and it's one ugly thing. Well, no need to fret, this is no manbearpig but something rather the opposite. Years of careful pixel placement to culminate into this celebration of my love for stamps, sci-fi and black and white design.
