Arturo Lee, a 2014 graduate of the TAI Masters in Advertising program, is now working at Dieste, a Hispanic marketing agency in Dallas. He and a group of creatives at the agency recently put out a tribute to the great creatives in advertising. Read more about the project from Arturo:
“Los DeAD Men”: A Dia de Muertos Tribute to some of the greatest creative minds.
“Ever since my graduation from TAI I have been fortunate enough to work at Dieste. Dieste is a USH full service agency that handles clients like Cricket Wireless, AT&T, Goya Foods, and Hershey’s.
It should come as no surprise just how important Dia de los Muertos is for a Hispanic agency, so to commemorate this great holiday, a few of the creatives came up with the idea to pay tribute to some of the greatest creative minds in the industry.
By creating caricature gifs, some of the industry’s figureheads came to life as their very own Catrinas (skull paintings). Each of these gifs were then mounted on their very own Tumblr and shared throughout social media.
The tribute turned out to be a great success as many of the people honored (along with their agencies), retweeted and shared the work online. It was a truly amazing experience to get a chance to work on something so unique and that involved many famous names like David Droga, Gerry Graf and Marcelo Serpa.”
