art director

meet me

 

¡hola! ¿qué tal?

I'm Belén, an art director from the South of Spain and a living proof that not all Spaniards know how to dance flamenco. 

As the daughter of merchants, I learned at the tender age of five just how hard it is to sell painted shells and other trinkets without a great marketing campaign. Fifteen years later, I moved to San Francisco to attend Miami Ad School with the goal of making up for my childhood slump in seashell sales.

From there, I followed my career to London and Prague before landing at Ogilvy New York where I proudly worked on The Refugee Nation Project.

Nowadays, you can find me spreading my wings at Droga5 but when not at the Agency, I brainstorm with my band of 'pirates' (a collective of creatives) for ways to take on social issues with imaginative solutions.
