I was born to create.
I was born in the '80s in Lisbon, Portugal. After completing Design graduation, I started my independent professional journey. As a young fresh-graduated, I might need self-improvement and life experiences to achieve better projects or even an outstanding job. So I moved one year to Barcelona to enroll in a Master's Degree in Branding. I came back to Lisbon with the title. Luckily, I signed with the leading branding company in Portugal — Ivity Brand Corp — and later with a prestigious multinational advertising agency — Leo Burnett Lisboa — and the rest is history. I find inspiration in everything life offers me.
Consequently, like nature, my works tend to be unique, and I leave my mark on them whenever I can. My biggest passions are something in between sculpture, illustration, and animation. Besides the business solutions I provide, sometimes these passions are suitable for your project. I am currently only working remotely from Lisbon.

Focus on creation.
I am a certified multi-award-winning animator, designer, and illustrator working in my studio, based in Lisbon. I have a BA in Design (IADE) and a Master in Branding (Elisava). Theoretic and pragmatic bases sustain my professional path.
My activity breathes art, design, and technology. My specialties are Design, Illustration, and Animation. In my career, I integrate many branding and advertising projects. This experience gives me skills beyond technique, achieving clients' desirable needs and expectations.
I have conquered many national, international, individual, and collective awards. They prove my merit, dedication, and passion for the profession. I recently got elected Best Illustrator of the year and received nominations for best designer and art director of 2021.
I highlight my communication, empathy, and determination from my soft skills. As well as proactivity, focus on quality and innovation, and desire for improvement.
This is the way.
With more than ten years of experience, I helped more than seventy businesses through my disentangled power. Some of them resulted in several awards — nine international, thirteen individually, and more than fifty collectively in the agency environment. In every single project, there is a concern to communicate strategical viewpoints. There are always expectations to manage and objectives to achieve. Despite sometimes the demand only asks for accomplishments. If You are brave and a challenger, it may sound like a cliché: I want to make You comfortable. How? By delivering You solutions to generate more sales. Consequently, You get more time to enjoy your life away from stress. We will brag about it.
Luck appears for its pursuers.
I've been distinguished for singular and collective works by prestigious experts from the industry. I usually don't look for awards, but luckily, I have conquered some local and international, maybe because the best people surrounded me. In 2011, I moved to Barcelona and missed my country's cultural heritage. I illustrated a set of Portuguese historical characters for theFestas de Lisboa (Sardines Contest) to fulfill that feeling. They're a national success because of the symbolism they carry. They also got selected for the 500 sardines book, a collection of most loved sardines between 2003 and 2013. In 2012, I started working with Ivity Brand Corp — the leading Portuguese branding agency. I was part of an award-winning team recognized as The Best Design Agency of Portugal in multiple national festivals. However, in 2014, I partnered with João Amaral(AMRL) for the Young Lions Portugal competition. We solve a design briefing with Inverted discoveries, winning a Bronze. The following year, 2015, I got shortlisted in Festas de Lisboa for the illustration I created: Portuguese Terrace — a tribute to my beloved dog named Picasso. I partnered again with João and projected Minimall, winning the Gold Prize and leading us to Cannes Lions representing Portugal. Next year, I signed with Leo Burnett. In 2018, I helped Leo Burnett Lx conquer several awards, namely The Best Agency of 2018 in CCP Awards. Thanks to that, I got two elections as The Best Illustrator and The Best Designer of 2018. In 2020, I moved further, and I projected ºOrbit for Huawei Theme Design Awards, winning Inspirational Spark. In 2021, I left Leo Burnett Lisboa and started my independent business. Although I am not on that team anymore, my work for Guinness is still getting awards. In CCP, they got two golds and seven silvers. In ADCE, they conquered a Silver. Recently, I got elected Best Illustrator and received nominations for best designer and art director of 2021. Nowadays, I can get the same adrenaline of mystery by creating purpose-built solutions.
