Hi! I’m Diogo, from Lisbon, Portugal.

I’m a professional self-taught senior interactive art director & creative director. Co-founder of studio 27Collective.

Since 2004 (the year that i started at the industry) i worked in several well know agencies, nationals and internationals – AKQA Amsterdam, Hi-Res! New York, BBDO Portugal (Proximity), FULLSIX Portugal (GrandUnion), and also small design portuguese boutique Adsoul. In 2015, co-founded the 27Collective, a design studio.

Always as an interactive art director, my career is made of websites, mobile and tablet apps mostly, but i also have experience doing graphic design and branding.

I consider myself a creative person, not only an art director. I enjoy the conceptual part of the job, the idea (the whole process), with the final goal to create something that engages the user. It’s all about people, and how to reach them!

My work can be seen in a wide number of clients/labels. Names as Nike, Bwin, EA Games, Riot Games, Mini, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Mercedes, Samsung, Tommy&Hilfiger, Sagres, EDP, Galp, among others.

Beside the digital work, i also dedicate my time and learning to the art of photography and directing. With a short movie as creative director (concept/idea) and one tv advertise as director (concept/writing/directing), i like to think myself as a storyteller.



One of my favorite hobbies and biggest passion, is photography. 
These are some of my pictures. Stay updated, follow me at Instagram

Photography helps people to see.

Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

Elliott Erwitt


Photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world.
