Hello! My name is David.

A designer’s job is about peeling an onion: layer by layer towards its core.

There lies the truth, the heart of an idea.

The challenge of turning complex thoughts into simple and clear messages is what gets my heart pumping.

That and to experiment with whatever I have in my fridge.

Want to see more of my work? Let's meet!

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.
