Hola! My name is María Contreras but call me Piti.
I'm a chilean Associate Creative Director / Copywriter currently working at Conill Saatchi & Saatchi Los Angeles, California. I have more than twelve years of experience in advertising, working in some of the most prominent advertising agencies such as BBDO, VMLY&R, Ogilvy, DDB, and others. I've met and worked with very talented and hardworking people at these agencies, and I am grateful to have collaborated with them!
I've worked with international and local brands like Pepsi, Toyota, P&G, Gatorade, Dove, Nestlé, among others. I've been nominated for and won awards at Cannes Lions, Effie, Ojo de Iberoamérica, Wave, and Achap (Chilean Advertising Festival). My work has also appeared in publications such as Lürzer's Archive Magazine.
I love to dream up, conceptualize fresh ideas and help deliver impactful messaging. I'm a Storyteller by nature and currently writing a short film, with plans to someday write a feature-length movie. Additionally, I'm learning the piano and trying to be patient, though the piano is hard, isn't it?
