HEY. I'M GABRIEL MONIZ (1999), A BRAZILIAN CREATIVE WITH A BACKGROUND IN ART DIRECTION & DESIGN.


Currently I'm crafting and designing creative, strategic and visual ideas as Art Director at Energy BBDO.

I was born and raised in São Luís - Maranhão, located in the Northeast of Brazil, but since 2019 I'm living and working in São Paulo capital, well, it's almost 3k kilometers from my hometown.

Speaking of hometown, that's where I started my career 7 years ago, and since then I've been lucky enough to do cool stuffs with amazing people at ad agencies like AlmapBBDO, Africa Creative DDB, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Phocus and currently at Energy BBDO.

During this time I also had the pleasure of having my work recognized in some awards, including in 2021 when I won Gold at the Cannes Young Lions Live Award, and in 2019 when I was selected by NGO Papel & Caneta as one of the 30 voices who fought to change the communication industry.

Well, I'm terrible talking about myself, but I love listening and telling stories, talking about music, sports, cinema, games, anime, mangas, all that nerdy stuff you should know, as well as loving any type of entertainment, including the weird things and also all kinds of content that comes from Brazilian culture, I love it, seriously.

I ended up talking a lot about myself because this is my ''about'' session. But feel free to get in touch to talk more about any kind of thing, more info, portfolio reviews, opportunities or anything like that. Anyway, thanks for visiting.
