Joana Vinheiro

I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I started as an art director after getting my Bachelor in Communication - Advertising and Publicity. After a while in the advertising industry, curiosity took me to Miami Ad School Europe, in Hamburg. I was looking forward to learn from other cultures and grow in my career.

That took me to Stockholm, Berlin, New York and Frankfurt. I had the chance to work with great talents in agencies like INGO Stockholm (a part of Grey and Ogilvy network), DDB Stockholm, M&C Saatchi Berlin, JWT NY and I'm currently at Cheil Germany. In 2018, after 4 years there, I saw all the hard work payoff when it became the 2nd most creative agency for digital communication in Germany.

I describe myself as a forever learner, curious and always excited about new ideas. My work focusses on ideas that goes through the 360°, because a good idea works in any channel.
