Influenza r was founded on January 2, 2010, in the Estefânia district of Lisbon. As our team grew, we relocated to the Marvila neighborhood, where we remained until the onset of the pandemic.
Currently, we have facilities located in the eastern part of the city; however, our team is working remotely.
The name “Influenza r” was inspired by the flu virus, which is highly contagious and spreads rapidly. This reflects our commitment to creating original messages that have the ability to spread organically.
We apply this same creative rationale to everything we do, ensuring that our work is not only effective but also engaging and memorable.
Our mascot, Victor, is a sponge character that we purchased at a craft fair in Jardim da Estrela back in 2010.
We were so fond of Victor that we decided to incorporate him into our logo. Now, he serves as a beloved symbol of our brand, representing our creativity, originality, and playful spirit.
What we can
do for your brand
A creative strategy lays the foundation for a campaign, defining the target audience, messaging, and channels for distribution. Design then brings this strategy to life through visual elements. Implementation is the final step in executing a campaign, ensuring that it is delivered effectively across all channels.
Every brand has a unique story to tell, and we believe in revealing the authentic truth of each project with purpose.
This means that our strategy is a collaborative process with our clients. We listen carefully to their needs, exchange ideas, and define a compelling path to help their brand reach its destination.
During this phase, we define a clear vision, analyze the competitive landscape, gain a deep understanding of the target audience, and craft a strategy that will guide the brand throughout its journey.
Once the strategy is defined, we’re equipped to “design the brand” and bring it to life.
Design that truly reflects a brand’s values is critical to maintaining long-term project unity. Authenticity and coherence inspire the internal team, provide partners with confidence, and ultimately establish trust with clients.
We define the brand’s name and visual identity, determine the appropriate communication style, and structure consistent communication systems.
Our expertise spans a range of design disciplines, including:
- Graphic design
- Web design
- 3D design
- Video design
- Event design
Once a brand has a clear strategy and well-defined identity, it becomes easier to showcase it across all media. In practice, we work on all possible expressions a brand can have to ensure it’s consistently communicated.
We offer implementation services for various mediums, including:
- Online stores
- Environmental design
- Brick-and-mortar stores
- Direct marketing
Our team is committed to delivering the highest quality output, ensuring the brand is consistent and effective across all touchpoints.
We are not your average advertising agency. At Influenza r, we have created an alternative and collaborative approach to working with our clients. Unlike traditional agencies, we prioritize direct communication between our project managers and the client, ensuring that their needs and expectations are fully understood and met.
At Influenza r, we pride ourselves on being project managers. This means that each of our creative professionals is responsible for overseeing their projects from start to finish, and that our entire team is in constant contact with all clients.
By ensuring close attention to every stage of the project, we are able to guarantee that nothing is lost in the process, and that the final creative proposal is precisely in line with the client’s vision and expectations.
At Influenza r, we have a direct line of communication with our clients. Unlike traditional agencies, we don’t have a salesperson acting as a middleman between the creative department and the client. Instead, the client communicates directly with the creative professional who is overseeing their project, ensuring that there is no loss of information and that feedback is received in a timely and accurate manner.
Working remotely has always been part of our vision, even before the pandemic. Our team is geographically dispersed but maintains constant communication throughout the day.
This approach enables us to bring on board professionals with diverse skillsets, as more and more creatives prefer to work remotely, and there are various tools available to ensure efficient management and communication.

While our permanent creative team handles the majority of the creative work, there are certain tasks that we entrust to partners with whom we have established regular collaborations.
By carefully balancing the briefing, discussion, and creative proposal stages, we are able to develop effective and impactful creative solutions that deliver results for our clients. Whether it’s a branding project, marketing campaign, or website design, our approach ensures that the final product is a true reflection of the client’s needs and goals.
A creative briefing serves as a clear communication channel between the client and the creative team, outlining the project’s goals, target audience, message, and other key details.
A well-written creative briefing ensures that the creative team has a clear understanding of the project and can develop ideas and concepts that meet the client’s expectations while staying on brand and within budget.
After we receive the briefing we start an open discussion where individuals can build on each other’s ideas, identify potential challenges, and explore various approaches to a problem.
Overall, brainstorming can be a powerful tool for generating new and innovative ideas, building stronger teams, and ultimately driving business success.
Delivering a creative proposal to the client is a critical step in any creative project. It requires a thorough understanding of the client’s needs and objectives, a visually appealing and engaging proposal, and the ability to receive and incorporate feedback from the client.
By going through these phases, a design strategy can ensure that the resulting design is effective, user-centered, and aligned with the goals of the company.
This phase involves gathering information about the company, its market, customers, and competitors. The goal is to gain a deep understanding of the context in which the design will be used.
Once research is completed, the data is analyzed to identify patterns, trends, and insights. This helps to establish a clear picture of the design problem and the opportunities for improvement.
In this phase, the design team takes the insights from the analysis phase and synthesizes them into a set of design principles or guidelines that will inform the design solution.
This is the creative phase, where the design team generates a range of potential solutions to the design problem. This may involve brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and testing.
Once the design solution is finalized, it is implemented in the appropriate context. This may involve developing a website, a product, a service, or any other design solution.
After implementation, the design solution is evaluated to determine its effectiveness. This may involve user testing, feedback from stakeholders, or other forms of evaluation.
