Who we are

It's as a Global Designer that Vânia Messiah founded and created BEWOW Design, from Lisbon.

First, Vânia studied management and worked in various sectors such as the pharmaceutical sector, IT and asset management for 8 years, mainly in the Principality of Monaco and Lyon.

Being passionate about design in the broadest sense, art and photography she completed a degree in Interior Architecture Designer as well as Photography, followed by a 6-month internship at Julien Dayet Intérieurs in Lyon and embarked on the freelance adventure in 2014 part-time and then full-time in 2016.

BEWOW Design was a logical continuation after Vânia Messiah Design Global, with now a less institutional but more creative and tech orientation. Indeed, after participating in a competition for Startups (StartUp Voucher) for a year and creating an eco-responsible brand that is under development, Vânia resumed her freelance activity and works for several clients based in Europe from Lisbon where she lives since 2018.

Then, in 2021 Vânia obtained a scholarship from the Santander bank to carry out a certification with the prestigious M.I.T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) on the management of Digital Transformation in companies (Leading Digital Transformation). Introducing all current high technologies (Blockchain, IoT, Cybersecurity, A.I. and the Cloud) in the transformation of companies for their evolution but also on how to create a real culture of change within structures.

In 2022, she was awarded a second scholarship (30 selected out of 5,000 applicants) and obtained a post-graduate degree in Digital Business Development from the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon (Técnico+).

“I asked Vânia services in order to develop the communication of Casa do Menor France, an association helping underprivileged children in Brazil. I appreciated her work, her seriousness and her professionalism. In addition, Vânia being bilingual French Portuguese that made things easier for me, she received news from Brazil directly and translated them into various communication media. Our collaboration was really what I needed for the development of the association. “

“Throughout the duration of our collaboration, Vânia has been able to adapt to the specificities of each project on which she has worked. Her diligence at work, her motivation, her curiosity, her sense of organization and her constant good humor have was a real asset for the agency. Working with Vânia was a real pleasure and I will not hesitate to repeat this experience as soon as the opportunity arises. “

“Having organized an event for the benefit of SIDACTION which took place at the end of January 2017, I needed a complete and competent backstage team. That’s why I asked Vânia who was invested body and soul for this event. In charge of the website, Vânia was the major element in taking the photos of the participants in this project. At my side, she was able to show her multiple talents in photography by highlighting comfortable certain people in front of the objective and to coordinate in a fluid and logical way the organization of the website. Her kindness and her finesse made her a person I really needed for this project. Invested on all points, Vânia has a spirit of solidarity and mutual aid, rare nowadays and it is necessary, I think, above all, to privilege and underline. I wish her a very good continuation and hope to work, one day, with her, on another project.I can’t thank her enough for everything she did and will always be grateful to her. “

“When I’ve met Vânia she was my BTS student and I was a French teacher. I could already appreciate her dynamism, sense of responsibility and creativity.
Later, when I found her, she got involved wholeheartedly in the La Maraude Monaco charity, of which I am co-founder and which helps the homeless in Nice. She has proven to be an empathetic and committed marauder on the field and, with professionalism and efficiency, created, organized and offered, in its generosity, an attractive and human website to our association, a tool for promotion and transparency of our actions to attract goodwill, always difficult to find, and encourage memberships and donations, without what, our action can’t being able to continue. On behalf of President Frédéric Dabezies, the board and all our volunteers, I would like to thank her… Pour Eux, rien que pour Eux.”
