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.

Social Media Trainee

Communication has always been part of my life, but at first I was speaking in the first person. I’m an actress who graduated in Theater, Cinema and Television and I fell in love with production. So I decided to study again this time in Tourism and Events Management, and I am currently in a Branding and Content Marketing post graduation. I’ve worked in communication and brand activation in event companies and had the opportunity to be part of some events such as EDP-Cool Jazz, Building the Future by Microsoft and Festival Panda. Simultaneously I’ve produced content for some brands such as Topo Tents, Colé Artesanais and TEIMA Alentejo SW.

Designer Junior

I always knew that one day I would work in the creative industry and my academic career has always accompanied my desire. First I went to Escola Artística António Arroio, and later I graduated in Design at IADE, having worked and studied simultaneously, which provided me with many valuable tools not only professionally but also personally. Besides the technical side, the more artistic component is what stands out in my work as a designer.

I’m from Beira Alta but it is in Lisbon that I am unveiling myself! I have a master’s degree in Earth Sciences, but I have 14 years of experience in process management, with particular focus on the sales areas, accounting, billing and human resources. My curiosity makes me a very communicative person, making me a constant learner. I take on the role of "face" at Message in a Bottle, being the financial and human resources manager.

Patrícia Pereira

Communication Consultant

I started working through an internship as a journalist at Antena 3, RDP, almost 20 years ago. Since then I have become the true woman of seven trades. I was a producer and a journalist at a television production company that had tv shows such as Golf Report or Escape, both on SIC Notícias. I've worked at MSN, Microsoft news portal, where I performed the coordination of the Content Editors team. Before that, I was part of the team of content editors of Motor24, of the Global Media Group, for 3 years.

Mónica Marques

Mónica Marques

Junior Communication Consultant

More than anything, journalism gave me the opportunity to learn from people who were references for me.  It's good when super people become colleagues. I won't forget Baptista-Bastos, wearing a bow tie and a creased shirt, correcting reports, "adverbs of manner have no accent"; João Gobern listening to a Sétima Legião vinyl and writing about music, and Pedro Rolo Duarte, telling how a studio works at Rádio Difusão Portuguesa and dreaming about the magazine he was going to write. Years later came thirteen years of Rio de Janeiro and many reports and chronicles and short stories published here and there about music, literature and more obvious ululations. There was no Whatsapp or Twitter, Skype calls were difficult.  In the wave of the blogosphere I created Sushileblon - Blogue da Diáspora Blasée, in love with Rubem Fonseca, Caetano Veloso, Nelson Rodrigues, the Jobi, Lapa and Leblon, Cachaça Cristalina and the Cagarras. After the blog I published two novels in Portugal, which I wouldn't write today, but which look good on the bookshelf, and I returned to Lisbon. For eight years I have loved being Copy. Waking up every day and "gilding the pill".  To think that soon I will reach the level of refinement and elegance of the world's greatest marketeer, Alexandre O'Neill. On weekends I buy fish and flowers at the Mercado da Ribeira, read, listen to music and go to the beach. With Catarina.
