Reis was responsible for directing such works as Vem Pra Rua, for Fiat; Bentley Burial, for ABTO; Galaxy Surfboard, for Samsung; and My Blood is Red and Black, for Hemoba and the soccer team Esporte Clube Vitória, a campaign which increased blood supplies in the state by 46% and was acclaimed as the most awarded campaign of 2013 by the Gunn Report, in its All Gunns Blazing Category. Last year Reis helped LBTM to win 22 Cannes Lions, making Leo Burnett Tailor Made the most awarded Brazilian agency at the 2014 Cannes Festival. He was acknowledged by Advertising Age as one of the six most awarded Creative Directors in the world in 2013.
