My name is Fabio Barros,
I’m a Brazilian ACD Art based
in New York City, married
to a Polish girl and proud
father of two Arabian cats.

Born in a small town outside Sao Paulo in Brazil,
my creative career has taken me all the way from Americas
to East Asia. Today, I’m stationed in New York City
as VP Associate Creative Director for

After 15 years of developing and leading creative
campaigns for clients at
McCann, Ogilvy, Publicis,
Wunderman Thompson, and M&C Saatchi,
my personal ethos is to combine craft, creativity,
and strategy to simply tell stories.

This has helped me pick up a few Golds at
Dubai Lynx
and MENA Digital (including Campaign of the Year),
a Bronze
Effie, a Best Portfolio at the Behance
Appreciation Awards
in New York, and landed
a project in the
Lürzer's Archive - 200 BEST Illustrators
Worldwide 18/19.

Playstation lover, frustrated goalie, illustrator,
and proud father of two cats.
