Hello, I'm Ale koston,

I’m an art director/creative director, passionate about creativity, cinema and art. 

I believe in taking risks, improvising, failing, asking stupid questions, working with different teams, continuing to learn with people more talented than me. 

I'm currently a Creative Director at Grey Brazil,  previously I worked in Lisbon, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, for agencies such as Ogilvy, Africa, Dentsu and Fischer America.

So far, I’ve won awards in the main advertising festivals in the world, including 14 Cannes Lions, Best of Direct at the One show and the White pencil at D&AD, it's worth saying that these last two had never been won in Brazil. I also taught my one-year-old son how to high-five.

In 2015 was ranked 9th most awarded art director in the world by the Cannes Lions Festival.

Clients I’ve worked for include, Coca-Cola, Sport Recife Football Clube, OLX, Sol de Janeiro sunscreen , GSK, Honda, Toyota, Pernod Ricard, Electrolux, Sony, Panasonic, Penalty, Pioneer, VIVO, Natura, Nestlé amongst others.
