Germán F González

Creative (Art) Director at ADNOC Distribution
Dubai, Emirati Arabi


Venezuelan Creative (Art) Director, based in Dubai. With several years of experience working in Advertising, Design, Innovation and creative areas.

As a result of over 20 years of experience working in the creative sphere as an Art Director and consultant for various studios, advertising agencies, and corporations while also serving as a university professor in the field of design. Currently based in Dubai, I have been able to hone my skills and become a visual storyteller, creating imaginative and inspirational artworks, and working closely with several clients and brands from different countries and multicultural backgrounds.

As an advertising professional, I am well aware of how to create concepts to reach the end consumer. My experience includes conceptualization, development, management and supervision of the different stages of several advertising campaigns, events and activations while maintaining direct contact with the working teams, suppliers and clients involved.

At the same time, I have developed a career as a university professor in the field of graphic design, gaining additional experience in how to convey ideas to fairly heterogeneous groups of people, thus growing as a visual communications professional.
