SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL // Diego started his career in the late 90’s in an old-school print shop, where he fell in love with design and visual arts.
After an intense period in Madrid, he moved to Lisbon and joined his first healthcare agency. During his graduation at the Lisbon Ad School he started exploring the digital and guerrilla side of advertising, jumping between Lisbon, London and Madrid. At the age of 28, just before being nominated as one of the best Art Directors in Portugal, he returned to Brazil as Country Manager, after working with brands such as Guinness, Desperados, Nintendo, Pfizer and Durex.
In 2015, he joined Havas Life Sao Paulo as Creative Director, leading the agency to its first Gold Lion in pharma for Brazil. Since then, he has been a jury member at the LIA, Clio Health, New York Festivals, The Hatch, Lisbon Advertising Festivals e Cannes Lions. Since 2018, Diego shares the creative and managing role with Mauro Arruda at FCB Health Brazil.
