Who we are.
Based in the heart of Porto, Portugal, we’re a team of three women: Cidália, Joana, and Sofia.
We met at college while having fun time experimenting with graphic design, illustration and advertising.
After our bachelor's, there was a climate of uncertainity and crisis in our country, but we didn't want to settle and wait for the perfect job, so we started working together in our school's incubator. This was the naive beginning of our exploration as a team, of different materials and techniques, and the start of Oupas! as a creative studio.
Fast forward, 12 years have passed by, allowing us to meet and work with a wide range of clients, creating solutions for the fields of advertising, product display, illustration, installations and events. We can proudly say that our creations are easily recognizable, whether in a shop window, a magazine or a stage.
