Flavio Pantigoso

Chief Creative Officer and Founder

Appointed Adman of the Year by the ANDA (National Announcers Association), Flavio studied in Brazil and his pursuit of creative excellence took him to Chile, Spain, Holland, Mexico, Belgium, and of course, his native Peru.

Flavio has led Archive magazine’s Worldwide Ranking of Creative Directors. He was a member of Y&R’s World Creative Council, and is frequently called upon to serve as a judge in major award shows, such as Cannes. He is also a regular columnist in important local media.

Under his leadership, FCB Mayo was named Digital Agency of the Year of Peru in the Digi Awards 2016, Lowe Mexico was named Agency of the Year by the Creative Circle of Mexico and Leo Burnett Lima was elected office of the year by its network. Y&R Peru ranked second at Archive’s Worldwide Ranking of Advertising Agencies in 2014, a year that saw the agency quadruple its revenues.

He has earned consistent recognition, including 16 Cannes Lions, 2 Grand Effies, 1 Gold at Effie Latin America and a Gold WARC for Innovation. His work has also won more than 400 awards at Cannes, Clios, Effies, One Show, London International Awards, New York Art Directors’ Club, New York Festivals and Webbys, as well as local and regional award shows.

In addition to having participated in the launch of the very first Super Bowl spot made by a Peruvian agency, Colgate’s “Water,” he has developed groundbreaking transmedia campaigns such as “Peru, Nebraska” for the Peru Country Brand, “Vultures Warn” (USAid), “Plant Lamp” (UTEC) and “Where is my otorongo” (SABMiller), all of which were awarded at Cannes.

What really makes Flavio happiest is to prove that the impossible is possible and that extraordinary work that really builds brands can be done in any part of the globe. Real work, which influences culture and expresses humanity above all.
