Resume

Hey there,
my name is Santi
and I'm an Art Director.

"Yes, S-A-N-T-I", that's what I have to say everytime I introduce myself in Italy, and most of the time people still think that's my surname, and that's probably the best thing about living abroad.

Born in Messina in 1990, I started my advertising career in Publicis Rome where I worked on integrated campaigns for international brands such as Heineken and Renault.

2013 Italian Young Lion winner within the cyber category, I had the shortest celebration ever (2 days) due to an obsolete rule that disqualified my copywriter and I. The following year the rules changed. (Read the full story)

Living in Antwerp since 2015, I spend my days amongst creativity, fries and Rubik's cubes.

I worked for:
