Martins is a collaborative leader, whose work style leads and motivates teams to creative excellence. His skillset allows him to lead multiple teams but also get his hands dirty when necessary.

 

When he’s not making ads, Martins is working on his screenplay, catching up with the latest fashion trends, watching anime, or baking desserts.

Martins began his career as a graphic designer in Riga, Latvia. After five years as a designer, he developed a strong sense of design and aesthetics, but his love for concepts led him to shift towards advertising, and he enrolled in Miami Ad School San Francisco.

 

Straight out of advertising school, he landed a job at Droga5 (NY) in 2014, where he created award-winning work for Newcastle Beer, Motorola, and Jockey.

 

Martins joined BBDO NY in 2016, continuing to garner awards for his work on Foot Locker and Sandy Hook Promise, among others. There, he was promoted to Creative Director.
