My name is Ailton Henriques. I am a 28 years old brazilian art director with a design background, a passion for technology and an entrepreneurial streak. Ok, and I am also a heavy (but healthy) user of the internet and all the wonders it can bring.

I've been working for 7 years in the creative field and since then I have accomplished a few goals in my life.

First I graduated with honors at the Superior School of Advertising and Marketing (ESPM-RJ). Then I got a degree by specialising in Digital Media at Perestroika-SP. Alongside some of my best friends, I created a very successful design event called Insert Brasil. I've also been able to work for many big companies and brands such as Tátil Design (Brazilian agency responsible for the Rio Olympic Games Brand Identity), Osklen (Fashion brand), New Style (ABC Group), Google and Coca-Cola.

In 2013, I went to Canada to be part of the creative team at MacLaren McCann in Vancouver. There I was able to work for Hell Pizza, Wendy’s, MyPakage, Vancouver Planetarium and Concur.

After Vancouver, I went back to Rio and I was one of the first creatives in the team at Pereira & O’Dell Rio de Janeiro's. POD was named in The World's Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Advertising by Fast Company.

Now, I'm in Düsseldorf/Germany working as Senior Art Director at BBDO.
