Deloitte Digital Australia has picked up one of the most hailed and celebrated art and creative directors in a recent move which has solidified it at the top of the digital space in Australia. Brazilian born Gustavo Vampre will take his place as the Creative Director of the firm’s digital wing.

Gustavo Vampre was rated as the world’s number one art director and number two creative director at this year’s Cannes Lions Global Creativity Report. He started out as a designer in his home town of São Paulo in Brazil and moved into art design a couple of years down the track. Eager to incorporate his passion for design in creative work, Vampre merged the two seamlessly to create a well-rounded and fruitful career.

Having stepped into multiple roles across a broad range of industries – including at Ogilvy, M&C Saatchi, Host/Havas Australia, as well as a freelancer for the some of the world’s leading brands – he has a vast depth of knowledge in the field and a certain sense of suave to top it off. “My background in design has enabled me to add a high level of finish to my work, and maintain a very stylish, clean house,” he says.

“I’m really excited by the opportunity to create meaningful work that can change behaviour,” said Gustavo Vampre. “The breadth of talent, resources and incredible clients at Deloitte opens so many new avenues for innovative thinking.”

World’s number one art director joins Deloitte Digital

Throughout his career he has worked with big-name, prestigious brands including Nike, Google, Moët Hennessy, Electrolux, Lexus, Qantas, Optus & Telstra. He has also won a few awards in his time, but for the sake of being concise Consultancy.com.au will only list those awarded in 2018. 

They include: Three Cannes Grand Prix which includes a Titanium Grand Prix, two D&AD Black Pencils, two Grand Clios, five Spikes Grand Prix and a Champion for Humanity award at the UN's Global Goals Week. 

Vampre will report to Deloitte Digital’s Chief Creative Officer Matt Lawson who himself was nominated as the world’s greatest copywriter by the Big Won report. He is also the 5th most awarded Executive Creative Director globally and has led Deloitte Digital as CCO for the past year. 

Lawson has been celebrated by the consulting and accounting firm and envied by his competitors in the digital creative space for his success in the past year. With Deloitte’s step into a market traditionally reserved for media agencies, the two Cannes Lions, the Grand Prix for Australian Digital Idea of the year at the AMYs and three Spikes (including the heralded Innovation Spike), there is no doubt the market has changed forever.

Lawson said; “Gustavo has a passionate belief in the transformative power of creativity, and his work is clear evidence that he has the brilliance to produce world-changing ideas. We are proud to be building another option for creatives like him to channel their talents.”
