Zulu Alpha Kilo Welcomes Marcelo Mariano as Associate Creative Director

By Erik Oster 

Marcelo Mariano recently joined Toronto agency Zulu Alpha Kilo as associate creative director.

Mariano arrived at Zulu Alpha Kilo from The Martin Agency, where he has served as an associate creative director since March of 2015, working with brands including Oreo and Land O’Lakes. Prior to joining The Martin Agency he spent over a year and a half as an associate creative director on Ford with JWT in São Paulo. That followed a year in the same position with R/GA’s São Paulo office and around six months as an interactive art director with Toronto agency Sid Lee before that, working with brands including Dell, Alienware and Ubisoft. Mariano occasionally goes by Marcelo Jesus, which he explains on his LinkedIn page is not because of any “miracles but due to the long hair I used to have.”

“Mariano bring a wealth of innovative digital thinking which further strengthens an already strong group of thinkers,” Zulu Alpha Kilo CCO and founder Zak Mroueh said in a statement to SHOOT.

“I’m really proud to be part of an agency with such a strong creative DNA and culture,” added Mariano. “I’ve always loved Canada and Zulu is an agency I’ve admired for a long time.”
