Creative Director

We were born to craft. Born to elevate every story that comes our way. To push the limits of our collective imagination, one project at a time.

We are a multilateral creative company, here to bring the most innovative projects to life. With a high level of attention to detail and an almost stubborn determination to get things right, we generate a creative product of the highest calibre. We are creative to the bone, storytelling is in our blood, and collaboration is in our DNA.

We evolve our artists through projects of multiple vocations. Moving from installations to content, from music videos to local and international advertising, from museum mandates to projection, while mixing in augmented reality or digital experiences, it’s easy to immerse yourself in our world.

As an artist-founded and led company, our mission is to give talent the freedom and resources they need to foster quality work and thrive in a fun and creative environment.

We are Rodeo. Born to craft.
