International creative agency DDB & Tribal, Amsterdam has strengthened its design team with the new hire of Swiss-Brazilian designer Pedro Julien. In his new position as Design Director, Pedro will be responsible for overseeing the design outputs for clients including KLM, Heineken and adidas.
Pedro began his career in Brazil 10 years ago, followed by a freelancing stint in Austria and Switzerland. Pedro has worked with clients including Google, Nike, Puma, Atomic, Red Bull, and Computer Arts, and in 2015 was behind the visual design and user experience for Google Cultural Institute’s award-winning ‘Performing Arts’, a virtual project in which users could explore performances in full 360 degree.
“DDB & Tribal Amsterdam is already a bit of a melting pot, but I have to say this is our first Swiss-Brazilian. We’re looking forward to seeing how that South American flair and Swiss efficiency balance each other!”, says Ivo Roefs, Co-CEO, DDB & Tribal Amsterdam. “Jokes aside, we’re incredibly impressed by Pedro’s background in typography and how he approaches interface in a simple, surprising and effective way. We think Pedro’s extensive knowledge of design and his natural leadership will really strengthen our creative offering.”
Pedro joins DDB & Tribal, Amsterdam together with new Traffic Manager Irina Fominskaya.
