Camila Rodrigues de Souza

Art Director

I was born in Jacareí, a small city in the state of São Paulo, and moved to the capital in 2001 to study Advertising at the University of São Paulo (USP). During my first year in college, I entered the university’s junior ad agency as Junior Art Director, and continued to specialize in the creative field after that. By the time I graduated in 2006, I was working in a graphic design studio doing branding and packaging design for clients such as Cadbury Adams, Santander, and O Boticário. In 2008, having decided to make a career shift towards advertising, I landed a Creative Assistant job at FCB Brazil, and in two years I got promoted to Art Director. NIVEA, Nestlé, Mondelez, SKY, Brastemp, and Smiles are some of the great clients I worked with throughout my years at FCB. During that time I also had some international experience representing the Brazilian branch in three FCB Creative Rumbles, gatherings where creatives from different countries got together to develop a global campaign. In October 2016, I joined Lew’Lara\TBWA as Senior Art Director. Since then I’ve taken part in some exciting projects for Nissan, Gatorade, Coty, and other brands. I look forward to the new challenges ahead of me.
 

Illustrator
Besides working as Art Director, I love to draw. Since the beginning of my career I have taken illustration courses and worked in that area doing both commissioned  and personal projects.
