My name is Jay Nielsen, I am brazilian and I am 30 years old. I have both the qualification and the vocation for graphic design in the advertising and fashion industries. Academically speaking, I started my studies in Brazil and went on to graduate in Portugal in the IADE institute for the Visual Arts, Design and Marketing, where I further developed my techniques in the areas of fashion and Design. I starter to work professionally in design in 1997 in Brazil and after gaining
the experience that I though necessary, I started working as a graphic designer in 2000. Since then my work has always been connected to advertising, print and digital media, packing and image editing.
During this period I had the opportunity of working in big agencies with professionals of great reputation. In 2005 I decided to reach for new markets and I set course to Portugal, where I continued my journey and gained more experience in the area. Always looking for new challenges, in 2008 I accepted an invitation to work in Angola as an Art Director and the challenge has been very rewarding. During these years I have taken part in many Workshops and Seminaries, in the areas of fashion, design, art, showbusiness, photography and image editing which have prepared me for a more far reaching universe and gave me professional versatility. I have worked with leading brands in the international market, including Nokia, Toyota, Johnson& Johnson and BP, among others. The taste of a well done job came recently with an important prize, the Winner Creative Awards 2008, which I received in Angola for my work in the Integrated DStv campaign. My objective is to surpass challenges, surpass all expectations and continue to create quality work and see it recognized.
