About me

Fabio Caveira is a bit different from other Brazilian guys. He doesn't like soccer, doesn't know how to samba and never tasted feijoada (a local heavyweight delicacy). But like some Brazilians, he's crazy about advertising. So crazy that he has been working in the industry for 25 years!

Caveira’s career has taken him all over the world, from Brazil to Portugal, to Poland, to Romania, to Jordan, to Qatar, and now to China. After working at global networks such as J. Walter Thompson, M&C Saatchi, Leo Burnett, and Y&R, he decided to join an in-house agency. So he moved to Shenzhen, China, to join OPPO – one of world's top 5 mobile companies.

Besides OPPO, he has worked with QNB (Qatar National Bank), Orange Telecom, IKEA, Kia Motors, Portugal Telecom, Coca-Cola, and Petrobras and his work was recognized by the industry receiving awards and nominations such as London International Awards, The New York Festivals, Ad Stars Asia, Lisbon International Advertising Festival, Brazilian Creative Club - CCSP, and featured on many Lürzer's Archive editions.

As a side note, he loves to photograph food, to travel, and to discover new tastes, colors, smells, things in general - and to be inspired by them.
