Bio


Maximiliano Chanan

Out and about

 
I’ve been around. Traveled a lot and worked in several countries, met some awesome people and broke a few bones along the way.

Olá,

My name is Maximiliano (Max) Chanan I’m a Creative Director with nearly 19 years of experience in Advertising. I started my career in Brazil moved to The Netherlands, and now I’m in London – I’ve also worked in Canada, Japan and China.

For me everything needs to start with badass idea, something exciting that can be crafted until it becomes great.

I like to make stuff. Stuff that stands out, provocative doodah’s that connect companies to culture, ads that are not ashamed of themselves.

If the work is great the rest will follow.

Talking about the rest – I have got 6 D&AD Pencils, 4 Cannes lions and several other international awards, but I believe my best pieces of work are still to come.
