If we had to select five projects that marked the route of Formtools® in recent years, with all that this decision have in difficult and thankless,
this would be a possible selection:

- Designing the Candelmaker* 
and all its accessories (*machine that makes candles from wasted oils).
By the unique character of innovation and sustainability that involved the entire project and process, which culminated in a Red Hot and IF award
for formtools and OON (the creator of the concept).
OON Candlemaker - an introduction video
OON Candlemaker - an interview video 

Designing the Sagres troph league cup 
(the national first division football championship), with McCCann agency.
By defiant character, excellence, exclusivity and difficulty in producing the required unique piece.
 2009/2010 Portuguese football Championship -  delivery of the trophy video  

Designing the packaging for Popota kit,
 with the Born agency.
By the nature, opposite to the previous, but no less defiant in simplicity, scope and difficulty of production. That requires a piece produced on this scale
and with a mandatory minimum cost.

Designing the TAP- Portuguese air company stand for BTL exhibition,
with McCCann agency.
By the unusually clean/sober character that was acheved, even in a typically difficult environment such as the trade fair ones (merit shared with my friend Bezerra).
This project also won the prize for best stand BTL that year.

Designing the interior of the agency office BAR,
on Páteo Bagatela in Lisbon.
By the way we turned the difficulty in virtue. How is was managed to combine four views (3 different views from the client partners plus our) apparently divergent (sometimes almost antagonistic) in a result that seems impossible today to have been otherwise.
And being at the same time, the truly expression of their owners.
We thank BAR (Bontempo, Anaori and Ralha), for being a unique cocktail.
