+ Do you really want to know about me? CLICK!

My name is João Magalhães, I know you can’t say my name. So, call me Joe. I'm currently working as an Art Director at Alma DDB.

As you can see, writing is not my passion. I'm an art director, graphic designer, dreamer... HUMAN.

When I see a blank page, I can only think about what is going to be drawn.

In high school, I was that kid that appeared to never be paying attention. Seemingly in my own world of doodles and drawings.

Long story short, I became a designer, with expertise in digital.

Check out my work or just say hi.

*** I have an O-1 Artist Visa (USA) issued to People of Extraordinary Ability in their field based on awards, professional references, experience and creative portfolio, it allows me to work/freelance for anyone/anywhere in the United States. ***
