Hi! I’m Davide Mancini a 30-something Creative Director with a focus on art direction, graphic design, branding & digital products. Currently working as Creative Director at DPDK in Rotterdam. I keep busy coordinating multi-disciplinary teams to build projects and collaborate smoothly. Delivering jaw-dropping work.

My predominant work responsibilities involve contributing to brand strategy development to deliver, through design, the right message in the best form for the business case/client’s objectives.

My key focus areas are: 

  • Making projects a creative and commercial success – I lead the creative execution during the design stage in collaboration with a wide range of other communities including planners, account and project managers, designers, copywriters, photographers, illustrators, and animators.
  • Overseeing production while paying excellent attention to detail and to the client’s brand guidelines.

What has brought me here:

  • 10+ years of experience working as Art Director and Graphic Designer. 
  • Generating clear ideas and concepts in tandem with the copywriter. 
  • Producing sketches, storyboards and art-layouts based on creative visions and ideas. 
  • Understanding marketing initiatives, strategic positioning and target audience
  • Taking responsibility for owning, shaping, developing and delivering creative projects 
  • Contributing to successful new business and farming efforts, as well as pitches.

Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of working with international brands such as Adidas, Amex, S.Pellegrino, Galbani, Allianz, IBM, Heineken, Birra Poretti, Durex, Husqvarna, Sky, G-Star RAW and many others.
