Facundo Zapata is an award winning Creative Art Director born in Buenos Aires living in Berlin and working for the advertising and creative industry, for and around Europe.
Trained as a visual artist, he started in the industry setting off a now +16 year journey in art direction. Now with a discerning eye for art and design, he considers himself as a storyteller above all. He approaches every job with the same artist’s sensitivity and a love for the process.
He has worked for brands like Coca-Cola, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Kia, Bosch, Siemens, Peugeot, Moët Hennessy, Puma, Heineken, Miller Genuine Draft, Nivea, Dove, WWF (World Wide Fund), Nokia, Telefónica, BBVA, MALBA (The Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires), among others.
He has received more than 20 industry awards including Cannes Lions, NY Festivals, Effie, FIAP, Montreaux, Sol de Iberoamérica, Ojo de Iberoamérica and other national awards like Diente and Lápiz de Oro.
He has taught Art Direction at Brother Escuela de Creativos. He is also in love with photography. He usually shoots with his analog camera and considers himself an amateur photographer in (fast) progress.
He loves art too. But all his paintings look like a Pollock.
