Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Pablo Zarate

Designer, Artist & Independent Art Director.

Buenos Aires, Argentina
I'm an accomplished designer and digital artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I have a vast experience in many creative fields, and had worked for both big and small brands and clients. Currently I co-lead the design team for all digital products of FOX Networks Group for Europe, Asia and Canada. Working with brands such as National Geographic Channel, FOX and FX.

I love side-projects. In 2013 I started something called PSA for creatives where I was able to share some ideas and lessons with the global creative community through beautiful posters designed by many colleagues from around the globe.
It's an ongoing project and many creatives had welcomed and joined this cause.

Since 2014, I co-organize the local chapter of CreativeMornings in my hometown and several other events for creatives and designers.

CreativeMornings

Co-Organizer

CreativeMornings is a breakfast lecture series for the creative community.
--
In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals.

The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme. CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local sponsors, generous venues, and longterm partners.

Anyone can attend. Just register beforehand to reserve your spot. And if you need a little help convincing your boss to let you attend, we’ve got you covered.

Additional Information

I strongly believe that design is an intellectual profession and there's nothing that can't be solved or improved through design thinking.
