My name is Christian Lopez, I work as an independent creative director.
Though I come from a background in art direction and graphic design my true strengths are storytelling and visual communication.
Whether it's working as part of a multidisciplinary team with writers, directors, designers, or photographers, or flying solo, the mission is always the same: to create genuinely bold and provocative communication.
During my 20 years of experience in advertising, I worked for brands such as Nike, Google, Ford, Adidas, Evian, IKEA, Square, Samsung, Audi, and others. With ad agencies like Wieden+Kennedy, 72andSunny, Anomaly, We Are Pi, Conquistadors, Droga5, Mother, Johannes Leonardo, and others.
But it's not all about work. I try and invest as much time in my personal projects from documentary films to books to more experimental work that often overlaps with my commercial projects.
My personal and commercial work has been awarded at D&AD, Cannes Lions, SXSW, Webby Awards, Slamdance Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, Raindance Film Festival, Art Directors Club, Ciclope Film Festival, Epica, Effie, and published in places like The Wire, Numero, Pitchfork, It’s Nice That, Metal or Creative Boom.
Based in sunny Barcelona.
