Hey there! I'm Filipe, and here's my career kaleidoscope, shaken, not stirred.
I cannonballed into the creative pool in 2008, crafting tales for an A-list of brands, including (but not limited to) Volvo, Vodafone, and Samsung. While my bread and butter was copywriting, my secret sauce was design, serving up visuals for Vanity Fair, Adobe, and even Lancôme Paris.
In 2012, my team and I nabbed the Eurobest Young Lions title, embarking on an international competitive odyssey. The creative cosmos aligned again in 2014 as I snagged the Young Lions Competitions for Cannes Lions, earned a seat on ADC*E's Young Board, and sparked creativity in young minds at EDIT school.
The force was with me in 2015, as my Star Wars Illustration Project blasted off, with features in Vanity Fair, Fubiz, Adobe, and the Hero Complex Gallery, LA.
Buckle up, because 2016 shot me off to Qatar to join TripleTwo, working with heavy-hitters like Qatar Airways and Al Jazeera. By 2017, I'd jetted off to Dubai, where Leo Burnett and I painted the town with global brands like McDonald's and local stars like Emirates NBD.
In 2019, I slipped into the ACD shoes at MullenLowe, leading local behemoths like CityCentre, First Abu Dhabi Bank, and Dubai Tourism.
In 2021, I played a thrilling game of hopscotch between roles. At Citron, a Dubai start-up, we served tableware to 30 countries! Simultaneously, as Head of Creativity and Design at Grand'Ideia, I infused Portugal's events scene with fresh ideas, leaving a lasting mark on the brand's visual identity, and breathing new life into Grand'Ideia from top to bottom.
Since 2022, I've been sautéing creativity at Demind Group's restaurants, including the latest sensation, La Niña.
And here's the grand finale: Some of my work has been awarded at prestigious galas like Cannes Lions, Eurobest, New York Festivals, Webby Awards, The Loeries, Dubai Lynx, El Sol, FIAP, Portuguese Creative Club, and Prémios Sapo. The creative spark within me continues to ignite the industry, but in a different area as the restaurants that I work for have been distinguished year after year as best in class in their category at the likes of What's On Dubai Awards or Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards.
Now, for the encore? Well, I'm no C3PO, but I do juggle three languages - Portuguese, English, and French. With my diverse skill set and a trail of creativity, I'm ready to take on whatever comes next.You can reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
