Nice to meet you. I'm Daniel Portuga: "The Smiles Hunter". Portuga, a nickname symbolising Portuguese blood, a fighter, life’s hunter, my father's inheritance. Daniel, a Brazilian soul, with swing, humor and an expert in making people laugh. I am a result of this mixture, accumulating experience from all over the world. Since 1998 working with Digital, Design and Advertising, more than 100 clients, 13 countries, from Brazil to London straight to Singapore and now, the world. An unrestricted passion for what I do and that's a story I love to tell.

Creative Direction 360º, focused on digital strategies, campaigns, art direction, UX, social media, proactive solutions, team management, integration with other areas and people growth: that’s how I bring ideas to life. In this journey I won awards, and many friends, great friends. Social Media Professor in Digital Marketing Strategy MA, KeyNote speaker in Pixel Show, one of the biggest design events in Latin America, University of São Paulo, Business School SP, Belas Artes University and Columnists Award juror, work displayed at the Modern Art Gallery in Slovakia. In addition, over 50 articles and interviews across the globe.

Today, I keep the same boyish passion but with more experience and something that never changes: the will and endless ability to continue sharing smiles. Maybe one day we meet to have a drink and put the world to rights or to work together. We'll probably laugh a lot. And then certainly, I will call you: friend. Read Less
