Hello.
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
Area23.

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
2 Silver, 3 Bronze and
13x shortlist at Cannes Lion Festival, a few Golds
at Dubai Lynx, a Bronze Effie and landed a project
in the
Lürzer's Archive - 200 BEST
Illustrators Worldwide issue.


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