Hey, I'm Paula Essig.                                             

An Associate Creative Director (AD), 27 years old. I'm from Porto Alegre-RS, and now I live at São Paulo (Brazil). Interested in photography, illustration, 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. My references come from what I see.

Also, I’m always looking for workshops on Illustration or photography. Whereas I began drawing in my childhood, photography is a recent passion - though really compulsive. I try to apply for both works.
