TRUE FACTS ABOUT RAFFI

Yes, it has come down to this. You are about to experience an Art Director’s attempt to write a clever "about" section. I can't hold it in any more. So here we go: We’re living in an apocalyptic world, post-advertising era where even Art Directors can write (or at least should). Although so much has changed, the one thing that has stayed consistent is that everything starts with an idea. The simple, singular line that summaries a complex thought conceived during your morning shower. Yes, I could write about how international I am (but I may end up sounding like a spoiled rascal). Or I could easily tell you about all the "awards" and "recognitions" I’ve achieved during my "x" years of experience working for giant advertising agencies. But I would much rather leave you with this thought: If you’re looking for a humble passionate Creative, I am your guy - with all the experience and achievements mentioned before ;)
I'm a multidisciplinary creative that truly believes in the power of get-off-your-butt-and-do-it. For the past 6 years, I've been creating ideas that connect brands to its consumers, trying to make their relationship a fresher, healthier and ever lasting one.  

Throughout my career I’ve worked in Brazil, the US, Germany and Australia in well-known advertising agencies such as Ogilvy NY, Wunderman Thompson São Paulo, Serviceplan Hamburg, Isobar Melbourne to name a few.

My work has been awarded multiple times at major award shows including One Show, Cannes, FIAP awards, Melbourne Advertising and Design Club, Golden Award of Montreux and more.
