About me

Hello! I'm Dio and I'm originally from São Paulo, Brazil. I'm currently based in Dubai working as an independent Creative Director / Art Director. Throughout my career I’ve had the privilege to work at some of the world's best networks and independent agencies, partnering with great clients such as Nike, Spotify, Snickers, Nivea, Volkswagen, Havaianas, Emirates, IBM, Samsung, United Nations Women, among others.

Some of my work has been recognized in a number of international award festivals and featured in publications such as “Advertising Now. Online” and “Guidelines For Online Success” (Taschen, Germany).

Always eager to get better at what I do, learning more and find new ways to engage and create meaningful connections between people and brands.

Seasonally I teach at Miami Ad School, guiding students to achieve their goals and also learn a lot from them.
