Daniel Soares - Art Director

Thanks for stopping by!

I’m a Freelance Creative/Art Director and Filmmaker based in NYC. With my work, I strive to create pieces that impact people’s lives. I am Portuguese, but I was born and raised in Germany. I’ve worked at various agencies including Grey New YorkR/GA Los AngelesAKQA San Francisco and Jung von Matt Hamburg. Someone also thought it was a good idea to let me teach at Miami Ad School. My work has won some shiny trophies, was exhibited in fancy galleries and featured on ABC News, The Guardian,

Mashable, Fast Company and Huffington Post. I believe in doing. In personal projects. In anything that comes from your heart and out of deep passion. I believe in details. In non-conventional approaches. In hard work. I don’t believe in marketing jargons. I don’t believe in FOMO. I don’t believe in excuses. With every work I create, I try to touch people’s hearts. That’s why I wake up in the morning. And rarely sleep early.
