2021 Next Creative Leaders Jury

Mariana Reis

AKQA São Paulo
Art Director

Mariana started working as a graphic designer with a focus on branding. But later realized that advertising was really what made her tick. She joined Fuel/Havas Lisbon to become an art director. After winning several young creative competitions Ð such as Young Lions and Eurobest Ð the doors to the international market opened. She moved to Ogilvy Paris where she had the opportunity to work for global beasts such as Dove, IBM, Milka, Philadelphia, and Perrier, to name a few.

In 2020 she was featured in the Next Creative Leaders list from The One Club and the 3% Conference. She also won a gold for her side project - The Forgotten Ones Ð on the Side Show Awards and was the portfolio of the month, for the second time, on The Invisible Creatives platform. And this year the Ogilvy Deputy CCO Joe Sciarrotta nominated her to be part of the amazing Creative LIAsons.
But her journey doesn't stop there.

This year she's moving in August to AKQA Sao Paulo with her creative partner - Teresa Verde Pinho - to work with people she admires since the beginning - in paricular Hugo Veiga and Renato Zandona.
Stay tuned!

P.S: She launched a personal project with her creative partner called Quem Ž Quem Project (Who is Who Project) to put a spotlight on Portuguese advertising. It's a project that wants to explore the best of what creative Portuguese do, not only in Portugal but around the world. Check it out: www.quemequemproject.com
