In just one year, their work contributed to DAVID Buenos Aires becoming a leading agency globally, through multi award-winning campaigns including “All In Promo” for Noblex.

In 2019, thanks to the arrival of Pancho Cassis at David as partner and global CCO, both were promoted to executive creative directors, in a clear plan to bet on the home talents to strengthen the growth of the agency. Since then, Nico & Nacho have consolidated a continuous growth to the office in terms of creativity, winning Lions in each edition of the Cannes Lions competition.

Additionally, in 2020, the office was recognized by WARC as the most effective agency in Latin America, supporting the capability to positively transform the business results for the brands they lead.

Nico & Nacho won assorted awards spanning Cannes Lions, Clio, One Show, D&AD and Effie, among others. They were also responsible for Argentinian creativity to be featured in the most iconic commercial break: the Super Bowl. 

Throughout their career at DAVID, they have worked for brands including The Coca-Cola Company, ABInbev, HSBC, Burger King, The Walt Disney Company, Mondelez, Macma, Netflix, Volkswagen México and Noblex.

Emanuel Abeijón, DAVID’sregional managing director, said, “ I have had the privilege of seeing the evolution of Nico and Nacho’s career for the last six years and I feel very proud to work with them every day. Their human touch, self-improvement, ambition, talent and constant effort are pushing us and our operation further. I have no doubt that we still have a lot to do and they are the best allies to achieve everything we set out to”.

Cassis concluded: “When I arrived to DAVID I was convinced that their talent was key to take the agency to the next level; and I was right.  In the last three years, the office has had an exponential growth in terms of business and reputation and even so, only a little bit of what they are capable of has been seen. Both are ambassadors of the Argentinian creativity and they add a tremendous value to all DAVID family around the world. I am happy for this deserved promotion.”
