Executive Creative Director

Razorfish was bought by Publicis Group integrating us into the creative agencies (Publicis, Leo Burnet, Saatchi...) side as a full service digital agency, one of the biggest in Spain.
I always say I've spent all my life in WYSIWYG, but it's changed so much since its beginning that it's like I've worked in 5 different agencies.
I continue leading the creative team developing creativity and strategy thinking for clients like Movistar, Openbank, Springfield, BMW motorbikes, Garnier, Buckler, Teatro Real...
During all these years as a creative director/executive creative director, the work of my creative team was recognized in national and international advertising festivals

Art Director

I moved to WYSIWYG when it was still nearly a family business. I joined the creative team as an art director and started working for clients like Yellow Pages, Daewoo, Bankinter, Microsoft...
We lived the internet boom, and I can say I grow up as a creative in the agency as the agency grow itself.
