Known in the industry by his first name, Ismael is best known for his work for leading consumer brands McDonald’s (Manifest), Volkswagen (The Way Back), and most recently Heineken (The Invention), for which extensive post-production processes were used in order to recreate an authentic vision of Paris in 1889.

After being a creative ( Art director) for 10 years at Lowe Agency, Ismael succesfully switched to directing.
Already as an art director he had a good tone of Art, Style and a photographic eye.
Together with a huge pile of postive energy and a very direct Amsterdamish way of working straight out of the heart

His perfect sense of casting, creates great human & heart-touched commercials.
Storytelling, Humor and Styling are of big importance to him.
He completly dives in each project as being his first... He gives all he has and that makes him rare.
