About

 

Thanks for visiting my page. My name is Bob Ferraz. I’m a Brazilian creative based in NYC. My work reflects my interests in content, entertainment, social causes, technology and people. I believe that communication can go beyond advertising a product or service. It can be interesting and generate conversation. Because of this, I'm proud of seeing my work being part of conversations in some of the world's leading media, such as CNN, BBC, The Guardian, Fox Business, Forbes, Discovery Channel, Newsweek, Huffington Post, Telegraph, Fortune, El País, NHK, Wired, Fast Company and Contagious Magazine. Please, enjoy!

He also has the skills and the experience to quickly achieve any project objective. In other words, he makes things happen. It was a real privilege to work with him.” - Daniel Corrêa (Creative Director at Alma Miami)
