A professional you can trust 100% all the time, knowing that everything will be perfect at final. Excellent art director, excellent speaker, excellent strategist, that not just knows what to say, but also knows how to do. When your creative director becomes also your best friend during the process, you understand that everything was the way it should be. Thanks for trusting and letting us take part on your journey. Davai!

André Garcia - Senior AD at FIELDS360

The kind of leader who does not waste energy for nothing. Quick decisions. Turn problems into solutions in a few seconds. Great seller. Awesome speech. He is always looking forward and seeking the highest place. His tireless creativity makes his team always fight for the best. This guy makes you discover qualities that you don't even know you have. Working for him was a challenge for me. I could not have less breath than him. I gained strength and I am very grateful to him for that. It was great to wish to conquer the world by his side. I recommend you to try too.

Andreas Toscano - CD at Google

Lucas was a true leader during the period we worked together: he proved his seniority performing as a true leader for his creative team and for his agency. Due to his active participation, we were able to get the results needed on a very tough project, under very tough deadlines. I'd recommend his as both a creative and as a creative director for whichever creative agency or task.

Eduardo Marques - ECD at 180LA

He has the advertising blood circulating... Lucas breaths creativity, eats ads and that makes him the best Advertising Encyclopedia I´ve ever seen. He never stops until have the BEST. So, if you want the best, be with him aside.

Francisco Cassis - Global CD at Mullen Lowe

Lucas is maybe the most hardworking professional I've ever met. He is brilliant. And the most important thing is that he is a good guy. So, very creative and very good person. Amazing.

Paulo Areas - ECD at Ogilvy & Mather

Very talented and passionate professional, Lucas is the kind of person is nice to have around. Has a clear picture of where he wants to go and what he wants to achieve, and his creativity and dedication will surely get him there.

Gilberto Barros - ECD at Mullen Lowe

Lucas is one of the most talented creatives I've ever worked with. Despite being under the 30's, his seniority is impressive. He is always bringing great creative solutions, sometimes using resources that nobody could imagine. It was a pleasure working with Lucas.

Fred Bosch - ACD at Mullen Lowe

Trabajar con Lucas es una experiencia diferente. Es un gran creativo y siempre aporta algo nuevo a los proyectos... ideas frescas y, sobre todo, interactivas. Además, en el ambito personal, es una gran persona y un gran amigo... y tiene el pelo más bonito de la agencia (varias personas lo han comentado).

Rodrigo Linhares - CD at FCB

Lucas is an outstanding creative leader with great and innovative ideas! He can see beyond the advertising and come up amazing solutions in any situation. It's a easy going person who always give an extra boost to the works. It's great to work with him.

Sandra Lehnst - former CEO at Lürzer's Archive

Lucas is very creative and can work well in international projects like ours between BBDO and Lürzer's ARCHIVE. The results of the campaign were seen at Cannes Lions and brought great impact for Lürzer's ARCHIVE. Well Done Lucas! Wish to see you again in the international advertising world.

Cassio Guiot - Senior CW at FIELDS360

Lucas was the most expressive and brilliant mind I could work with. Not by the complexity of ideas but by the creative simplicity he have. These 360 + 5 days together at Fields360 were not working days, but days of learning. So, i hope to learn more and to share in the near future great results with that awesome professional.

Gustavo Levi - Strategist at Geometry Global

Lucas is one of the most incredible professional that I had the chance to meet. He is a very committed and motivated professional that always inspires and pushes everyone around him. His willingness, dedication, creativity, and responsibility are outstanding. It doesn't matter for how long you know him, he always find a way to surprise you with his knowledge and sharp mind. He is an immeasurable asset for any company that is willing to be relevant in the market. Have I mentioned that he is also funny? The whole package.

Kirill Zhukov - MD at Havas Digital

Sometimes in our lifes we meet so professional people that they are much bigger and effective than some departments, or even companies. These kind of people can not just follow rules, but more important - create new ones that drive other people and make this World spin. Lucas is one of them.

Sarah Okrent - Head of Creative Services at Mullen Lowe

Lucas has an amazingly creative mind. He is full of truly unique and forward thinking ideas and is able to implement them thoroughly. He has a fantastic work ethic and is a pleasure to work with.

Waltinho Ferrari - CEO at Azzurra Digital

No-one has a bolder view of the business like this man does. It's amazing how he can come up with solutions that fits both effectiveness and awesomeness. Here's my guess: he is what and who the future of advertising is waiting for.

Bruno Nakano - Senior AD at R/GA

Lucas is your guy if you're looking for someone who is passionate about what they do. One of the best conceptual thinker I've ever seen. His dedication comes through in his work. He truly knows the digital world, business side and client issues. Also, one of the funniest and interesting guys too. Did I mention he's a great singer?

Polina Zabrodskaya - CD at Publicis

We worked with Lucas on several projects and all I can say is: no day without a surprise. He’s totally unpredictable; you can never tell what’s going on inside his smart head. And when you think you've seen everything - there's always something left in store. That’s a great thing for a creative, right?

Vasily Bogdanov - Co-owner / CD at Little Big Agency

Brilliant workmate and just an awesome guy! High-skilled professional, the owner of a huge number of awards and a nice sense of humor. Optimistic and easy to communicate.

Ilya Andreyev - CD at BBDO

It was a great pleasure for me to be part of one team with Lucas in Proximity Russia/BBDO. We worked on many challenging projects for clients from various industries: financial services, logistics, FMCG. The synergy of the team where Lucas's input was significantly noticeable helped us to deliver hi-end class work that was highly appreciated not only by clients and their consumers but also by Cannes Lions cyber jury in 2012.

Yury Naon - Client Partner at Havas Digital

This is a person whom I recommend with pleasure and jealousy as this is a diamond you always want for yourself. You will never regret you meet him as a person and will thank the Universe if he's in your team. A man of 1000 talents. Very smart and sharp-witted, true hard worker with pure view on things and great communication skills. Understands the business, people, the context and environment of the projects with very specific details. One of the best presenter i've ever worked with or ever seen. Can speak simple of complicated things. Very good at managing the team or a process in different roles. Makes any process go so easy and joyful you won't believe it is happening. Can inspire you with couple of words or a conversation if he sees you encounter problems, even internal ones. Always on a roll. He is the spark you are looking for.

Andrey Myzdrikov - CEO at SailPlay

Lucas is the strongest cocktail of different talents that I saw in my life. He is a true leader who can take the whole team and go together to the very end through day and night to create the best solution. I don't remember how many times I asked Lucas how such wonderful ideas could come into his head but this was really a big surprise to me because his way of thinking is completely different and could create amazing things. Working process with Lucas is really not usual working time because u are totally in the process of making piece of art!

Diego Isaac - COO at Azzurra Digital

Lucas is the most creative professional I´ve ever known. He brings the best solutions to the worst problems. Inspite of all he´s simple and objective. Totally recommended as the best art director I´ve worked with.

Lucas is a passionate and talented art director. He´s always looking for the best ideas, no matter the size of the client he´s working for. Great creative, great teamate.

Lucas is by far the most talented and creative professional I know. His work is mind blowing, always introducing new concepts, new points of view from a completely new perspective. I would definitely recommend him.
