Hey, I'm Paula Essig.                                             

A Brazilian creative art director with 9 years of experience, based on Amsterdam. Interested in photography, movies and graphic design.

People are my great inspiration. That’s why I got into advertising: I really desire to give new outlooks for the world. I’m always observing people and thinking about new solutions for current problems.
