Alejandro is calm and has a very avant-garde mentality. He stands out for being a very empathetic person who loves to develop his creative side on a personal and professional level. The two activities that he enjoys the most and help him to relax are running and playing tennis.
At sb and as digital designer, Alejandro carries out several creative and design tasks. He creates navigable prototypes, tests different variants to find the most suitable graphic solution and makes animations of all kinds. He does not stop until he finds the best option for each objective.
If we talk about his cultural tastes, we have to mention his favorite movie, series, musician, and book: the horror movie Hereditary (he likes it a lot, although he is not sure if it is his favorite one), Breaking Bad (one of our favorite series at sb), the rapper Sticky M.A., and Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin A. Abbott, respectively.
People who are both strategists and implementers are few and far between, but Alfonso is one. So while some are discussing the best moves from last night's match, he is already scheduling meetings and preparing new business proposals.
What is more, his knowledge of digital marketing, SEO and ecommerce enhances his abilities to convert leads into potential clients. In fact, Alfonso is someone who can spot new business opportunities in the most unlikely places: a tennis court, the popcorn queue ... even the morning traffic jams on the M30! Such a socially active person could only come from the capital.
Alfonso knows more about the latest issues and trends than the Twittersphere, although he always has time to check the news that is really important—the weather, because canceling weekend plans is always a hassle. When he is not knee-deep in work, you'll find him in the countryside, his refuge, or reading about history, his passion.
Traveling, hiking, photographing every place, going to the movies, reading... Arnau is an active but calm guy from Valencia. He is also a caring person. We can confirm it because, from the first moment, he confessed his love to all the Smartbranders. <3 (The feeling is mutual).
His perfectionist character is reflected—day by day—in the execution of social media strategies. He collaborates in the Social Media Department as an Intern. So much perfection can make other people despair, although everything is compensated by his friendly attitude.
And, as nobody is perfect, Arnau has a big problem remembering names or titles… Although he is clear about his favorite movie, Seven, and his preferred show, The Wire. But, if we ask him what book he would recommend, he is more undecided. He hesitates between Cuatro amigos (Four Friends) by David Trueba, and Slightly Out of Focus by Robert Capa. He also doubts a lot about his favorite singer or band. It could be Tom Misch, Manolo Garcia, Amy Winehouse, Skinshape.... (Good thing he has a hard time remembering names, right?). 😆
Bibi was born in Cambados, Galicia, and she is our most international Galega. She always goes around with a jacket, even when it's 40 degrees Celsius outside; because "you never know when you might need it." A dreamer who wants to transform the world with her energy and positivity. The phrase that best defines her is a Galician expression that says that everything will always turn out all right: malo será.
Her education in Translation and Interpreting from the University of Vigo and in Management of Public Relations and Communication Agencies from the Autonomous University of Barcelona is crucial in our Social Media Department and adds value to Smartbrand's internationalization and multilanguage services.
Bibi's restless spirit has taken her to 16 different countries throughout the world, ending up in Barcelona. However, what Bibi misses the most about her homeland are her dogs (Yuli and Laika), her cat (Greison), and her turtles (Rick and Morty). Nonetheless, she has learned to shake off her morriña with her favorite hobby: drinking vermouth on Sundays in El Born.
From the first day, Cristina showed all her desire and her ability to cope with news and changes. She loves to face challenges and investigate until she masters what is new to her. And although she does not consider herself a geek, she enjoys learning to use new technologies.
Cristina works as a social media executive and is an essential support in the Customer Service that our Organic Department manages. She is a responsible, hard-working and resilient person, who at the moment, does not dare to manage French accounts because she believes that she still has to significantly improve her French despite having a grandmother of that nationality (we are sure she is exaggerating).
This cuisine lover—she dares to make any recipe—is a huge Harry Potter fan. In addition to watching non-stop all the movies of this incredible saga, she confesses that all of her pajamas are related to this famous wizard.
Cris is from Barcelona. She is cheerful, friendly and loves to go out and see new places. She is spontaneous, funny, and sb's biggest 'drama queen'—she always cries when she watches a Disney movie.
Curious and organized, among her usual tasks are creation and execution of communication strategies for social media. She is also in charge of the dynamization and Customer Service of different accounts within the Social Department.
Our favorite TikToker confirms that 'white noise' is very effective for sleep. Videos that have hairdryer noises stand out on her Forever Favorite List. She is also a faithful supporter of RCD Espanyol, a Spanish soccer team. We see this assiduously in our follow-up meetings, where she wears a wide range of jerseys from her beloved club—at the same time that she makes us green with envy with her weekend plans.
Eder is the first Smartbrander ready to dive into the pool. But that’s not a figure of speech or irony, he’s an active swimmer and a complete devotee of the sport!
As sb's managing director, he takes things much more calmly than in the pool, using his degree in Business Administration and Management, and master's in Account Auditing for budget control, billing and a host of other graphs and excels. If you’ve got numbers to deal with (and not just ones and zeros), it’s Eder you need!!
Engracia is very active and restless. And the only thing you can fear from her is giving her more than two cups of coffee per day. Although she suffers from trypophobia, so you can always show her a honeycomb and see how her nerves are taking away.
Her bachelor's degree in Journalism and Communication Sciences from the Complutense University of Madrid and her experience in Marketing and Communication make Engracia the perfect match for the Organic Team of Smartbrand. She is a breath of fresh air for the Social team in the management of social networks and the planning of special actions.
If you put together a millennial with a person from the silent generation, the result is Engracia. A “geek” who adores Catan, movies, series... and who combines all of it with her "nana" hobbies: sewing bags, hats or fanny packs; doing the football pools every week; and playing Bingo every other Sunday.
Enric had already been commander of the design forces on some of [sb_url url_relative='people/inigo-flores' target='_blank' rel='noopener' texto='Iñigo']’s previous projects. His good character and great ability to transform ideas and wireframes into designs ready for validation make him one of Smartbrand’s most indispensible pillars.
Trained in the military academy of design at Elisavia, he has led his team to victory on numerous fronts, from special operations such as Artistamundo.com to large-scale coalition battles such as Telefonica International Wholesale Services.
Without doubt, Enric is our best latest generation design weapon.
Eva loves reading, hiking, travelling, sailing – hobbies that might suggest a quiet and peaceful life. But all is not as it seems. Eva has lived in Japan and Singapore, crossed the Atlantic by sailboat and walked in the Sinai Desert. Is that enough?
Her extensive experience in managing large Google Adwords and SEO campaigns and being a natural polyglot (she speaks German, French, English, Italian and Portuguese) bring added value to Smartbrand, where she provides support as a PPC Specialist (AWF).
Energetic and positive, Eva has one declared phobia: bad coffee. In fact, she often tells of how she travelled to Japan with her own coffee-maker in her carry-on luggage! We hope Smartbrand's coffee is to her liking. We wouldn’t want to join George Clooney and Jaime Cantizano on her blacklist.
Iker Meabe is a tireless software engineer with extensive experience in e-commerce projects and multi-sector sites for small and large companies. He can take the brilliant designs of our UI team and apply the necessary technological reality filter to align end-user and business expectations.
His results orientation, Scrum training, and tenacity guarantee flawless and on-time deliveries. His specialities are Shopify, WordPress, PHP, Java, TypeScript, MySQL, MongoDB, Software Architecture (SOA, MVC, Microservices...), GIT and REST and SOAP API integrations.
Although Iker studied computer engineering in Donosti, if you talk to him for 5 minutes, you'll quickly find out about his football team. This taekwondist eats API integrations for breakfast every morning and writes code that makes computers do magic. He even manages to pull rabbits out of the online shops he develops. Seriously, he's our David Copperfield.
Iñigo, is Smartbrand. Perhaps because he is its founding member, and certainly because he is a source of passion, steadfastness and transparency for the whole team.
His specialties are Business Management, Tech Marketing, Digital Marketing, Strategic Marketing, and above all, conveying passion to the whole team.
For Iñigo, to-do's, emails, Discord channels or new tools to optimise and automate processes are never enough. We dare you to find a tool that Iñigo hasn’t already been using for over two years. Name it: ________
Although if pushed to find one of Iñigo's defects, perhaps it would be that he lives in an eternal full-volume loop of Disney's soundtracks (Frozen, Moana, Encanto...). The collateral damage of being a dad at the whim of my daughters.
The first thing that stands out about our colleague Jade is her great sense of humor—just take a look at how she describes herself: "Very French, but friendly". 😉 What we do know for sure is that she is a very creative person and that, besides going to concerts and visiting museums, she loves to spend her spare time playing video games, doing yoga or drawing in Procreate.
She works as a Junior Social & Influencer Marketing Executive at sb. She provides support to our Influencer Marketing Department throughout the different campaigns we create for our clients—from mappings to monitoring ongoing collaborations.
If we talk about her personal tastes, her favorite movie is The Boat That Rocked and her favorite series is Peaky Blinders. She also loves music! She likes the rock music made by the British band Arctic Monkeys. And if she had to choose a book, she would pick Le Voisin by the Parisian writer Tatiana de Rosnay.
Javi is a meticulous online editor and writer of content and information, whose training in Business Adminstration and Management and his digital native character help him write valuable texts for users without losing the business focus and SEO parameters for a second.
A keywords addict, Javi puts his language in the service of an idea or a goal, never forgetting that, overall, he is building a brand.
Do a Google search for "what is a gamer?" or "who is a gamer?" or "meaning of gamer” and you'll probably find a photo of Javi ... or a link to this biography. Because Javi is a proper gamer, as well a wearables addict, and often boasts that no one could beat him at Arkanoid on the Atari. Having seen his PS Network profile, we believe him, LOL.
P.S. We hope no one notices that we asked him to write his own search engine optimized biography of Javier Calleja.
Jenn is a travel lover. She studied Tourism, but soon realized that she was happier among websites, so she decided to extend her eagerness to explore to the online world as well.
She is determined, perseverant and always achieves what she sets out to do. And she proves it every day working and leading the Influencer Marketing Team at sb—where she obtains great results in the campaigns we run for our clients.
In her spare time, you will find her enjoying a good book or cyclically reviewing a Tarantino movie—of which she declares herself a fan. Maybe that explains her refined musical criteria and the little smile she flashes every time she opens the trunk of any car.
If anything has defined Josu since he was a boy, it is his curiosity to understand and appreciate the world around him, as his Netflix documentary history shows. Maybe that's why his training and professional experience are so multidisciplinary.
Industrial engineer with a master's in Communications Management, Josu has specialized in Online Marketing and Strategic Marketing in recent years. And as head of marketing & innovation, his mission is to ensure that innovation is part of every process we carry out, as well as to detect and implement new trends in the sector.
Josu is a big music lover (indie to an EPIC level) who denies a youth establishing himself as king of ALL the dance halls in the best place in the world for a Basque: Benidorm. He also believes that there can be no better childhood than the one he had in the 80s. It's also the only one he has experienced, though.
Juan is analytical and perfectionist. He is a consultant who specializes in e-commerce projects and likes to have everything well planned. When he is not measuring results, he loves to read a good book, take his dogs for a walk or engage in outdoor activities.
In his extensive experience, he has worked with more than 100 clients and has audited hundreds of websites—which has allowed him to learn and discover very useful tools in the world of digital marketing. All this know-how and his comprehensive Data Studio templates are fully implemented in sb's Digital Acquisition Department.
Leaving aside the professional part of Juan's work, he has many favorite movies. Although, if he had to choose one, he would pick Interstellar. His favorite series is The Wire and his go-to book is Deep Work by Cal Newport. As for music, his favorite band is The Beatles—which leads to interesting debates among the people of sb. Are they overrated? Are The Rolling Stones better? We love to gossip! 😜
Laura is a Valenciana who undermines all possible preconceptions about her homeland: she doesn't cook paellas, doesn't sunbathe and doesn't drink horchata. Fortunately, since we came across a photo of her on the front row at a good Valencian mascletà her reputation remains intact ;)
With a Degree in Audiovisual Communication and studies in New Communication Trends, Laura assures us that she will never have too many Twitter accounts to streamline or Facebook events to attend. The only difference is that while the accounts do get streamlined in record time, she is more "Interested" in the events than actually attending them.
As a pilates teacher and winner of the prize for the fastest bivouac at her Scout camp, our social team lead has managed (after long hours of meditation and zen) to make herself the perfect colleague for [sb_url url_relative='people/marc-tortosa' target='_blank' rel="noopener" texto='Marc'], and they are occasionally seen sharing hiking routes. Everything fits.
The first thing that surprised us about Lluch was her name. Although she is already used to explaining its meaning. She is from Alzira, a town near Valencia, where the patron saint is La Verge del Lluch (The Virgin of Lluch), so her name is very common there. If we dig a bit deeper, this Smartbrander likes to watch series and movies, listen to music and hang out with friends. Oh, she also loves to write. In fact, she published a book of poems a few years ago.
With a background associated with the literary world, Lluch works as a Social Media Executive at sb. She collaborates in the management of social networks and in the planning of the strategies that we develop for different clients. She also participates in the ideation of special and tactical actions.
If we ask her about her cultural tastes, she says she's addicted to This Is Us and a loyal follower of two great Spanish podcasts: "Deforme Semanal" ("Weekly Misshapen") and "Estirando el chicle" ("Stretching The Chewing Gum"). If we talk about music, the list gets longer: Zahara, Amaia, Missy Elliott, Vulfpeck, Manel, Amy Winehouse... But if we move on to books, choosing becomes more complicated for her. She really likes Esta herida llena de peces (This Wound Full of Fish) by Lorena Salazar. And if she had to go to a desert island, the book she would take with her would be... her eBook. 🤣
Luis is very passionate about Eurovision and not very fond of coriander. He devours all the books he can—El lector de Julio Verne (by Almudena Grandes) is his favorite one—while he plans all the trips that his free time allows him to do. When he is not discovering new places, you can find him on a terrace having a drink with the people he loves the most. In addition, if he has chosen the music, songs by Lole and Manuel or Zahara will sound.
This social media executive applies all his creativity to copywriting and planning strategies for the social media profiles of the clients we work with at sb. He also performs different analyses to detect possible improvements.
His favorite movies are The Great Beauty and Toy Story 3, and his favorite series is The Good Wife. But, to this day, he has not managed to get Aquí no hay quien viva—the first one, the real one—out of his head. With this confession, more Smartbranders have acknowledged being fans of this Spanish series... Most surprising is that Luis has time to see Juan Cuesta's Community reruns, but not to see memorable classics, such as The Godfather. 😱
Maialen is an animal lover and with her 3 dogs (Kala, Blas and Pipo) she proves to be the biggest dog-lover in sb. Some Smartbranders don't think so. But has anyone else gone on a trip to the Philippines and rescued a dog from the other side of the world? Maialen is the only one. Try to beat that!
She studied Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Mondragon University. With her specializations in Digital Marketing, Automation and Growth Hacking, Maialen is an extremely organized, transparent and curious marketer. And after having worked at Dog Vivant (seriously?), she joined Smartbrand as a junior growth marketer, where she continues evolving at a great pace.
Our young Duranguesa says that she has a bad memory for names, and that is why she has a notebook where she writes down all the countries where she has been. (She must have visited 26, although she doesn't remember much). As a good Smartbrander she's also fond of TV shows, but she "cheats a bit" because she watches the last episode of each season to avoid surprises. The rest of the Smartbranders were very grateful that she didn't spoil the end of Game Of Thrones :)
With a Psychology degree and a master's in Digital Marketing, Marc analyzes, conceptualizes and implements social media strategies and activities. With common sense and (psycho)logical techniques, he manages to build long-lasting, solid relationships between brands, products, businesses and users.
"As much prudence is needed to rule an empire as a Twitter account", he often says, and Marc is a very prudent boy and a quiet man, like John Wayne in that great John Ford movie.
His Twitter bio says a lot about him: “Cinema • Sci-fi • Music • Warhammer 40k • Books • Drink more coffee than I ought to”. In fact it says more about him than he does himself ;-).
After working in advertising agencies, large corporations, and start-ups, Nacho came to sb ready to share his social media knowledge, common sense, and exceptional table football skills.
As head of client services, his duties vary and include the day-to-day running of the Service Department, supporting the strategies and proposals developed by the different teams and contacting and managing our clients.
Catalan by birth but Navarran at heart, Nacho is a socially hyperactive person who always has something to do. Meeting up with him is not easy, but if you manage to, rest assured that there is no detail from TV series, music or comics he isn't ready to comment on. And you can always bring a smile to his face by asking how many burpees he's done today. The crossfit community has made him one of their own!
Otto is the best bodyguard we could have. You’ll always find him making the rounds of the office asking for nothing more than a stroke in exchange, or perhaps looking deep into the drawers in search of food. And if he finds the leftovers from the day before, bingo!
His innocence (he thinks he is smaller than he really is), his agility and constant happiness make him the perfect companion. And his positive presence and gift with people make Otto ideal for breaking the ice in the first meetings with our clients. Thanks Otto!
Obedient, hyperactive and always ready to have fun, Otto would give his life for any of us. The immense love he feels for every member of the team makes him a guard dog with honors, ready to defend us from any situation ... as long as no jamón bones get in the way ;).
Patricia is a Scout and has the neckerchief to prove it. When she knows the Catalan territory a little better you’ll find her trekking on some upland route.
This Vigo native is a vegetarian cooking enthusiast who exclusively practices the religion of Jamie Oliver in her kitchen, preparing succulent tupperware boxes of the highest class every day ... though the odd combination lets her down. She would never ever include steamed vegetables or, worse still, Russian salad in her dishes!
Her specializations in Motion Graphics and Digital Publication Design, make Patricia brave enough to add a rotoscoping effect (frame by frame) to an animation.
A pernickety detail-obsessive, she only creates exceptional designs because, to quote a verse from the famous Vanilla Ice song, “Anything less than the best is a felony”. Hang on. Quoting Vanilla Ice. Come on, Patricia.
Paula Acuña is a talkative and outgoing person who never turns down a good plan. In her spare time, she enjoys being with her friends, watching series, traveling and playing chess. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she developed a keen interest in geography. She can now identify almost any flag and locate any country on a map.
Two words define her: dynamic and curious! She works as a Business & Finance Intern—generating payment proposals, controlling invoicing, following up on budgets and providing administrative support. Despite being very organized and always having everything under control, her mother still thinks she is a mess. We won't get into family arguments. But at Smartbrand we can only say that we are delighted to have her on our team.
Her favorite movie is one that she used to watch when she was a child: Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. And her beloved series is Game of Thrones. (Although she wasn't very happy with its ending). Queen is the music group she likes the most. Although, when she has a bad day, she prefers to listen to Adele. And if she had to choose only one book, she would choose Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.
At first, Said may seem shy; but as he gains confidence, you discover that he is a very kind and friendly person—always looking for the good side of things. Besides enjoying spending time with his friends, Said loves playing video games (alone or in company), reading superhero and manga comics, drawing and even cooking. And he loves animals, especially cats! Although he already has two, he could have hundreds.
In his daily work as a Junior Motion Designer, Said develops the images and animations that are part of the different projects within the Experience Design Department. Here we can see his proactive, organized and detail-oriented character.
If we move on to his personal tastes, he enjoys any movie (especially animated ones) and any musical style; although if he had to decide, he would choose Up and the punk-rock music of Green Day. If we talk about his favorite series, he thinks he liked Breaking Bad more than The Walking Dead. And if he could only pick one book, The Diary of Anne Frank would be the one.
Sofia is a thoughtful and observant person! This allows her to adapt quickly to every circumstance. In her spare time she enjoys reading, crocheting all kinds of clothes and accessories, and exploring her favorite social platform: TikTok.
Sofia studied Advertising Management and Design, and during that period she cultivated a great passion for the golden ratio. At sb, she puts into practice her vision and knowledge as a Digital Designer, and combines graphic design functions with her skills to develop websites, banners and whatever is necessary to meet the needs of our clients.
When she talks about her personal tastes, she makes clear her passion for animation. Her favorite series is Steven Universe, and her favorite movies are Lilo & Stitch and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. As for reading, her favorite book is Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. And if we talk about music, she doesn't have any favorite band or singer (or maybe it is something she is embarrassed to say openly... 😈).
Teo transmits joy wherever he goes, and he loves to sing. On the street, at home, in the shower, while working... he is always humming a song! Fortunately, he is not bad. In fact, he was the singer of a band for a couple of years.
He is cheerful but also a very sociable and empathetic person. He applies these characteristics within the Influencer Marketing Department, where he is in charge of mappings, negotiations and the follow-up of the actions that we carry out with the media and other communicators.
During his free time, he loves discovering new places and people, as well as enjoying a good meal with friends... Considering that his favorite breakfast is fuet with banana, nothing he orders can surprise us.
Troy is our elegant Westie who is a fan of luxury and refined pleasures. So much so that he always sniffs what you offer him before opening his mouth. And he is also ready to reject a walk through the park if it is over 20°C outside and the humidity is above 60%.
Our head of protocol is characterized by his strong personality, his distinguished gait and great self-assurance; he is able to intimidate both Otto and Duna.
Aware of the gravity of his duty, Troy keeps watch to ensure compliance with protocol rules, always hoping for some infraction to be committed in the office so he can tip off Iñigo ... prior payment in snack form (vegan, please).
After years working in the publishing world and just days from becoming a (complete) vampire, one languid insomniac early morning, Víctor had a revelation that he cracked with the help of his dream interpretation dictionary: SEO was calling him.
A graduate in Humanities and Audiovisual Communication with extensive knowledge of psychoanalysis, Víctor considers himself a proud expert in banal culture, a specialization achieved through years of devotion to conversations condemned to ostracism.
As a selfless SEO specialist (AWF) and observer, Víctor is able to decipher the minds of internet users to devise techniques that help webpages get better rakings. Nevertheless, he confesses that linkbuilding strategies are a punishment from the gods for having given up his courtly love for literature and essays.
