Leandro Bechara

Senior Executive Designer at Refit
São Paulo, Brazil

About me

I’m originally from Rio de Janeiro, where I started working at Publicis Brazil. Throughout the first years of my career, I developed projects for Coca Cola, Chevrolet, Santander, L’Oréal, Essilor, Brookfield and was able to win my first Cannes Lion in 2013. In 2016 I moved to São Paulo to work at J. Walter Thompson Brazil exclusively for Ford Motor Company on the Latin American regional market. In 2018 I won the Estadão Cannes Challenge and got to attend the Festival. I recently took an opportunity to structure the in-house creative department at Refit and I’m currently a Senior Executive Designer.

I’ve always believed in conceptual thinking, in polished visuals, in making ideas happen and fortunately I’ve been honored in various international awards such as Cannes Lions, Cannes Lions Health, One Show, Clio Awards, Webby Awards, El Ojo de Iberoamérica and Wave Festival. My work has also been recognized in prestigious publications such as Forbes, The Independent, The Huffington Post, Rede Globo, Adweek, Ad Age and Contagious Magazine.
