Besides Burger King, DAVID Miami works for Budweiser, Bud Zero, Corona, Danone (Two Good and Activia), Mondeléz (Halls, Sour Patch Kids), and Coca-Cola. 

Luiza Prata Carvalho has worked as Brand Director for Nike and Uber at W+K Portland. Before then, she worked at Ogilvy Paris from 2013 to 2015. She has also served a number of Unilever brands, such as Dove and Hellmann's, while at Ogilvy São Paulo. 

Throughout her career, Luiza has played an active role in hallmark brand projects and has won more than 50 awards including the Grand Prix and several Lions at Cannes, a Black Pencil at D&AD and an Emmy for "outstanding commercial”. Among the prominent campaigns she developed are “The Switch,” “Serena Williams Unlimited Greatness,” “Time Is Precious,” “AF1 Baltimore,” “Dream Crazy” and “Dream Crazier,” all created for Nike (W + K) as well as “Recipe Receipt” for Hellman's (Ogilvy SP). 

“Luiza is the perfect match for the leadership profile we were after. Not only has she worked for award-winning brands in several markets but also, she is one of the most respected professionals in her field. Her attitude to work, her way of developing deep and lasting relationships with the people on her team and with the brands, fosters an environment in which creativity can flourish, allowing relevant and powerful jobs to emerge, like so many we have seen so far in her career”, says Ricardo Honegger, Managing Director of DAVID Miami.

“DAVID is a paragon of creativity and anyone in the client service business would be proud to work in an agency with this profile. I am very happy to be part of this team, which delivers work of distinction and with personality to such highly respected brands”, says Luiza. 

Since January 2020 DAVID Miami has been under the leadership of Ricardo Honegger. With over 15 years of experience, Rico has collected a vast number of awards throughout his stellar career, helping clients develop communication with strong impact on culture and society. Rico has been responsible for growing DAVID’s client partnerships and his leadership has guided the agency to receiving a remarkable sweep of the 2020 awards circuit with two Agency of the Year honors from D&AD and The One Club for Creativity, driving award-winning creative for Burger King, Budweiser and more.
