Renato Zandoná’s return to AKQA as Executive Creative Director for LATAM signifies a pivotal moment for AKQA. Teaming up with Managing Director Luiza Baffa, Renato will co-lead operations for LATAM while spearheading the expansion into Mexico through AKQA Casa. Embracing a decentralised model that champions innovation and collaboration, AKQA Casa stands as a vibrant global hub. By extending its reach to Mexico, AKQA Casa will cater to the diverse needs of clients across Latin America.

On returning to AKQA Renato said: “I’m happy to return home at such a special moment, with this new challenge of expanding the studio’s impact worldwide and creating creative opportunities for new clients and markets — all while maintaining the ambition and values that are the hallmark of AKQA.”

Luiza said: “AKQA Casa operates as a global hub with different rooms around the world. Currently, we develop projects for clients in Brazil, Europe and the United States. To do this, we leverage the strength of the AKQA network, which now has 30 offices. The desire to have one more room, now in Mexico, is to expand our creativity to new places and new clients.”
