Hi, I’m Andrés Chavarría
Born and raised in San José, Costa Rica. Currently living in Lisbon, Portugal.
Like a fish leaping out of the puddle, I was nearly born with a surfboard under my arm, gills and razor sharp fins. Any possible comparison is a pure coincidence. Early on every sparkle of light, every splash of colour, influenced my perspective on the whole wide world (www.com) . Meanwhile I bought a bike and unloosed the supporting wheels.
This vision lead me to Graphic Design on highschool where I cranked up some projects as a freelancer and which made me fall in love with this universe. Therefore I applied to college on Communication Design on Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon, Portugal. I continued to ride on, pushing my lungs and leg strength further.
Only months left to graduate, this big opportunity showed up as an internship in Live Content, where I jumped from a trainee to being Digital Art Director. Meanwhile I had an opportunity to join an awesome fintech company, CompareEuropeGroup. Leading online comparison platforms for financial, telco and utility products across Europe as Design Director and it’s the very own workplace I’m living for.
After more than 5 years of experience around agency/startup, muscle building and some spiritual walking I’m looking for new opportunities, other experiences that broaden my horizons. New people, new scenarios and a new culture that could develop me further and make ride for that extra mile.
I have had the pleasure of working in Portugal with the following brands: Super Bock, L'Oréal Professionnel, Agência Abreu, Betrend, Hertz, La Roche Posay, Vichy, BES, Um Bongo, Disney, Hertz, Garnier, Compal, MEO, MEO SW, MEO Marés Vivas, Microsoft, Sumol.
Then I went west to Brazil: Culture Ministery / Funarte, Proposals to BMW and HSBC. Yes, I went to Mexico: Fundación Mitz, Jumex Fresh, Merca 2.0, Office Depot.
Long story cut short: I’m still with that thirst for more. For that kick crossing through the next checkpoint. For that sweet sweet wave cruising just by. There’s still a lot to do...
