Message in a Bottle

Our DNA

We are from Lisbon. We are from Portugal. We belong to the World.

We are passionate about Marketing , our great vocation is to discover the strengths and develop the weaknesses of brands so that they can grow. We have a long relationship with Communication. We know who to talk to, how to use the most appropriate tone, and the best channels to get our messages across. We value a good image, as well as its functionality, when we want to communicate, so we look at Design as a crucial point in our work.

I've been working in communications for 16 years. Firstly as a journalist, but almost always linked to the world of brands, agencies, marketing, and advertising.
