My name is Luiz Gustavo Santana, I'm a 20 years old Game and Web Designer looking for an opportunity to show the world my creativity through my story-heavy game projects.
I’m the cofounder of Euthalia Game Studios, a talented team of artists, designers and developers committed to creating unique and deeply emotional gamified experiences.
I'm currently working as the Game Director of Hearts of Violet an innovative independent story-driven episodic game inspired by unique ideas of the far future and yet preserving the human condition as the center of the narrative.
I'm also currently working as the Senior Web Designer at Fulltec Technologies for which I was responsible for designing and executing 2 important website projects for 2 major clients.

As the Senior Web Designer, I’m responsible for supervising and executing the construction of new websites. I designed more than 4 websites so far, each with its unique artistic style and precise functionality.
I’m also accountable for managing our standard tools for scripting and assisting my coworkers with the creation of secondary web pages and newsletters.
I joined Fulltec Technologies in a transition period in the team, in which I was in charge of most of the main design demands, facing many challenges due the number of clients.
Hearts of Violet is an independent story-driven episodic game being developed by Euthalia Game Studios, a talented international team.

I had to opportunity to assist and improve the overall classes, especially the dedicated Unreal Engine 4 class in which I’ve personally assisted my colleagues.
