Cristián Costa Associate Creative Director @ R/GA NY

About Cristián

I’m currently an Associate Creative Director at R/GA, New York working across the agency’s client roster and new business efforts.

Driven by my huge curiosity, I left my hometown of Santiago, Chile to pursue new opportunities in the states and have accumulated over 12 years of experience in the advertising field.

I previously worked at Saatchi & Saatchi LA, 180LA, Young & Rubicam Santiago, and Ogilvy & Mather Santiago.

My interests have led me to work on Fortune 500 brands, including Toyota, Walmart, The NDSS (Down syndrome Society), The Olympic Games, Colgate, Miller Lite, Asics, Volvo, and many others.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have my work recognized at the most prestigious festivals around the world, including Cannes Lions, London International Awards, CLIO Awards, Art Directors Club, AD&D, ANDY Awards, and the New York Festivals among others.
