Ivo Sousa Martins

Lisbon, Portugal

Hi there. My name is Ivo and i was born in Lisbon 28 years ago. If i needed to describe my journey so far, i'd use the wise words of my mom: for god's sake, will you clean up your room?! No, just kidding, not those wise words: my mom also told me you can accomplish anything as long as you put your heart and soul into it. I know, it sounds cliché, but it's actually a life motto that i've pursued ever since i understood its true meaning. In other words, i've always been the proactive type and always enjoyed challenges. Wether it's work or pleasure, i enjoy taking on new tasks and goals, and becoming involved in activities that allow me to better myself.

I've lived in Lisbon my whole life and have done a couple of things worth mentioning. Let's start with the beginning. I was in highschool when i first discovered i was more into Arts than anything else. From then on, the motivation to pursue studies in Architecture came naturally and i've been working actively ever since. But the story doesn't end there. Over the past 5 years, i was involved in my family's company - Cabo Razo - which specializes in large format printing for the advertising/events industry. I've worked as a graphical producer for some exciting clients and projects, like the retail chain Pingo Doce or the mobile operator Optimus, to name a few. I worked alongside our clients to achieve results that made them proud. And us, of course. Nowadays I work as Social Media Manager and content designer for a Love mark called HomeLovers.

It's been a great ride, and you can find out more about it in my detailed CV, but now it's time for new professional challenges, namely in the marketing/communication sector. Wether you are an online business looking for new blood, an ad agency avid for fresh talent, or simply someone with a great idea looking to partner up, i would love to have a chat and tell you a bit more about who i am, what got me here today, and where i intend to go. Let me know at ivosousamartins@gmail.com Looking forward to it!
