Hey! I’m Ralph Andrade, 28 years old. I’m a Brazilian student and art director who, since childhood, imitated TV advertisements. I tried to be an actor, but I fell in love with the other side of cameras.
I left the south of Brazil, no money, with a single certainty: to be a creative in Rio de Janeiro. I worked as a store salesman, DJ and event producer to graduate in Advertising.
In 2018, I was selected by the Miami Ad School Brazil social program and I won a scholarship in Art Direction, being awarded twice as the best student at the school. Since then, I won more than 15 national and international awards in my portfolio.
I worked in small and medium sized regional agencies and currently I work at W/McCann Rio, creating for clients like L’Óreal Paris, Coca-Cola, Americanas Store and Estácio de Sá University.
Always involved in social movements, in 2011 I was a diversity manager at AIESEC (the world’s largest student organization, affiliated to the United Nations). Also in 2018, I became a member of the LGBTQI + diversity committee at the Binder agency, promoting education and social integration actions.
Of humble origin, I work for more inclusion and representativeness in advertising, looking for simple and creative solutions that positively impact clients and society. And my mother’s life, of course.
