Margarida Girão - Freelancer
Web Design & Collage Illustration
- Location Lisbon, Portugal
- Local time 07:45 AM
- Experience 15 years
I am globally developing my portfolio by working with editorial and commercial brands as also on web design projects. I was awarded a scholarship to participate in a multimedia project at the University of Aveiro, and I have taught web design in East Timor and with other private educational projects.
In 2012, I moved to Sao Paulo and worked in communication and advertising areas as both a designer and illustrator. After gaining experience, I decided to shake things up as I embarked on a new adventure: traveling by bus through South America, working as a Wi-Fi-nomad.
Upon returning to Lisbon, I continued to work on editorial and pagination projects, graphic design, and digital communication.
My artwork has been featured in publications such as WIRED, ADWEEK USA, VOGUE China, and Computer Arts.
I have been participating in various social projects such as Fashion Revolution Portugal and Animal Welfare associations.

Recommendations for Margarida Girão
Executive Director at Boston Jewish Music Festival

Strategic Planning Director - Wunderman Portugal
Besides having a great personality and being a great person to work with, Margarida has the rare ability of having a broader vision than the tradicional webdesigners, creating structured and user friendly websites.
José Rui Matos
Sales&Marketing Director - Consumer Goods Unit at Frulact
Margarida was my colleague at East Timor University in 2004. She proved to have a strong adaptability, as she quickly and easily adapted to a new country and a new reality, in which students had difficulties to communicate in Portuguese, the climate was extremely aggressive and the facilities were precarious for European standards. Nevertheless, three weeks after landed, Margarida was already able to communicate and interact with her students in Tetum, the local dialect. Margarida’s creativity, work capacity, communication skills and strong interpersonal skills stimulated students to present excellent web design final assignments, as I could appraise as member of the jury. Apart form her work, on a personal level, Margarida is extremely dynamic, responsible and above all, a good friend.
