Hello! My name is David.

Telling a story across all media is what gets my heart pumping.

That and to cook for friends with whatever I have in my fridge.

David Marreiros

I'm a 29 year old communication designer, proudly from a beautiful small town at the very west end of Europe: Lagos, in Portugal.

During my BA in Communication Design, I've lived 5 months in Helsinki where I found my passion for video, photography, white snow and reindeers.

Sailing along, I'm currently living in yet another port city - Hamburg -, where I'm currently part of the team at design for human nature.

The rest of the journey is still to be written.
