About me

Hello there, I’m David, a Designer born in Portugal but currently living and working in Hamburg. For over a decade, I’ve been helping brands tell meaningful stories via idea-driven brand design projects. I believe in the power of strong ideas. Relevant ideas. Ideas that are strategy driven, based on real insights, and iconic enough to transform brands into more valuable assets.

After a 7 year experience in Portugal, I now spend my days in Hamburg, focused on creating impactful solutions for exciting clients across an array of industries both local and international.

On my free time, I like to read and write about Branding & Design. My opinions have recently been published in Horizont and I'm a regular contributor to Muzli, a publication by InVision.
