Could've ended up putting art on walls, instead she's curating ads on billboards and making them a work of art.

Madalena started as a web designer in Porto, accidentally landed a BA in Multimedia Art in Lisbon, photographed her way out of it in Belgium, then arriving to Berlin's concrete jungle to be an Art Director — so, you can expect heart, distinct skills and an innovative mindset as guaranteed.
She's an art enthusiast, a concert goer, and a curious thinker, who crafts solutions by looking beyond the usual. As an upcoming Art Director, Madalena is here to push creative boundaries by stepping out of the comfort zone.
