Hi! My name is Bruno Leo Ribeiro. I'm a Brazilian Sr. Art Director from Rio de Janeiro, optimistic, curious, heavy metal fan, husband, and the best work I've done are two small humans called Arthur and Angela.

I've been working and learning with some of the top advertising agencies in the Brazilian industry, such as Lew Lara / TBWA and Fischer & Friends, and internationally at hasan & partners Helsinki and freelancing for agencies such as Fallon Prague and KKLD Berlin (WPP Group). I'm currently working at Havas Helsinki.

In more than 10 years, I have worked with clients like Fiat, Renault, LG, Helmann's, Nestlé, Fazer, Nokia, Stockmann, Valio, among others, and also doing personal projects like "Music Emojis", "Advertising NFL", "Album Cover Cover" and "Advertising FC".

 

I've been honored and nominated in some of the most important advertising festivals, such as: Cannes Lions, One Show Interactive, New York Festivals, Eurobest, Epica Awards, Effie Awards, The FWA, Cresta International New York, among others. I am member of The FWA Jury and I was member of the preliminary jury of the Cresta International Advertising Awards 2012.

What to expect from me? Curiosity and passion.
