Creative & Designer
Hey! I'm Mariel
a Panamanian designer currently playing as Creative Director in Mexico City.
So... about me: I've been working in advertising for the last 11 years. To keep it short, this is what I do: I make stuff up and craft images. I love both beyond my job.
On my daily basis, I've had the chance to work with some really cool brands, specially alcoholic drinks ;) like Stella Artois, Jack Daniel's, Budweiser, Bud Light, Cucapá, Tequila Herradura, Finlandia Vodka and more; also automotive brands like Volkswagen, Honda and Suzuki; some general big names like Coca Cola, Netflix, AB In Bev, Converse, Diesel, Red Bull, and so on; and of course, many wonderful small unknown brands plus some friends' bands.
On my free time, I enjoy collaborating with plenty independent projects. Mainly, I've been making educational material for some museums, NGOs, and other educational oriented projects in Panama for at least 9 years.
Anyway, I think both areas aim for the same: to engage someone else into understanding what you want to tell them.
In this portfolio I wanted to show a few creativity pieces I'm really proud of, if you want to see some of my design, retouch and illustration work all the links are at the end of the page.
