Ricardo Casal and Juan Javier Peña Plaza have been on the fast track since they burst onto the scene at David in 2011. The Ecuadorian duo started as junior creatives in Buenos Aires and quickly established themselves as a creative powerhouse, rising through the ranks and winning multiple awards in their eight years at David for campaigns like Burger King’s “Whopper Neutrality” and “Google Home of the Whopper.”

After making the move in 2019 to join Gut as partners and executive creative directors, the duo kept winning, helping land Tim Hortons for the agency and creating numerous award-winning campaigns along the way, including a Cannes Lion Grand Prix, a D&AD Black Pencil and a One Show Best of Discipline Pencil for Gut Miami’s Google “Real Tone” Super Bowl campaign.
