I’m originally from Rio de Janeiro, where I graduated in Advertising and began as an art director at Publicis Brazil. Throughout the first ten years of my career, I developed projects for Coca Cola, Santander, L´Oréal, Chevrolet, Essilor and Brookfield. In 2016 I moved to São Paulo to work at JWT Brazil exclusively for Ford Motor Company on the Latin American regional market. I’m currently a Senior Executive Designer at Refit.
I’ve always believed in conceptual thinking, polished visuals and 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, Wave Festival and Lusófonos. My work has also been recognized in prestigious publications such as Forbes, The Independent, Adweek, Ad Age and Contagious Magazine. My portfolio link is leandrobechara.com.
