My name is Andre Poli, brazilian-born Creative Director, Art Director & Designer, currently living in Brooklyn, New York.

Nowadays, when not freelancing, I am mostly fighting the good fight at my own Creative Boutique named Rise New York & Partners

Before starting my venture, I spent 3 great years at Wieden+Kennedy as a Senior Art Director.

Prior to all of that, I also worked at R/GA, Razorfish, Syrup and JWT. Altogether I have 18 years of experience in the industry and 20 international awards.

Throughout my career I’ve been fortunate enough to work with global brands like: Nike, Toyota, Ford, Google, Facebook, Sprite, Speedo, Clinique, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, NBA, Squarespace, Delta Airlines, Logitech, Walmart, Dell, Amazon and many others.

You can read more about me in my Bio, and reach me out on LinkedinInstagram or through my Email. Also, here is some of my Photography work.

Rise New York & Partners — Manifesto Film

Lauching a Company is not an easy task. Lauching a Company in New York City is specially not an easy task. For that, we wanted to communicate a message that was long overdue — the sentiment of Belonging. Being a founded by three immigrants, we can definitely say that we share the same feeling of being away from home and the struggles of living in a place that is not always that welcoming. While pursuing a place to call it home, amongst all the questions and challenges, a realization emerged upon us — RISE above it all is a mindset and a personal choice, and yes we do belong here and we are here to stay.
