Hey you! I'm Paulo Damasceno, a Black Male senior art director passionate for unformatted ideas that touch people's lives and influence the pop culture.  Currently, I'm working at GUT Miami. And I've worked on GUT SP, DAVID/SP/MIA, Publicis, Neogama/BBH and Ogilvy Brazil. 
I humbled had the honor to judge some ad awards like São Paulo Creative Club Annual, Wired Festival, Pernambuco’s Ad Awards and Fast Digital Award. And at last but not least, I’m also a teacher at Miami Ad School and former teacher at Cuca School for Creatives. It seems that I like to talk, so feel free get in touch, I'm always up for a beer and a good chat. Thanks for stopping by. Cheers.
