My name is Marco and I am an art director who became creative director in 2012 at Wieden+Kennedy Sao Paulo. I was born in the sunny and as hot as hell Rio de Janeiro. Living in Rio is to feel the devil's breath over your neck all over the year. That's why I love air conditioning. Because of that, I moved to São Paulo, where I realized that no apartment available for rent was prepared for air conditioning. Which made me move to Lisbon, where the weather is mild. It was perfect until I discovered that summer was very hot there too. So I decided to go back to São Paulo and rent a house with air conditioning at any cost.
Well, despite my personal war with the climate, I had a wonderful time working with great people in the coolest places. During that wonderful time, I was lucky enough to win relevant international awards, like Cannes, D&ADs, Clios, LIAs, and to be pointed to one of the top 3 Art Directors in Brazil, according to the Brazilian Advertising Association (ABP).
Now, I'm on a new adventure in Boston, Massachusetts at MullenLowe US. Not just because of the weather, which is definitely cooler. But because I love meeting new great people.
