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+).
