Hola! I’m Juliana, an Associate Director with 13 years of experience, currently working at Saatchi & Saatchi in New York.

I combine my passion for art direction and design to create authentic and culturally relevant work.

Originally from a small town in Colombia, I grew up surrounded by bats, cicadas, and the occasional venomous snake. My career started in Bogota, Colombia, and has since taken me to cities like Dubai, Toronto, and San Francisco, before settling in Brooklyn, New York.
