The Essential List

The Essential List: Jorgelina Diaz

FCB Mayo Lima’s ECD was born in Argentina, loves food and can’t travel anywhere without her headphones

The Essential List: Jorgelina Diaz

Lima is considered to be one of the most exciting destinations in the world right now for food. And so it’s lucky then that Argentina-born Jorgelina Díaz made the move from her hometown of Buenos Aires to Peru’s capital (although that is in no way a knock to Argentina’s delicious fare). 
 
Jorgelina is the executive creative director at FCB Mayo, one of Peru’s most esteemed agencies, a role that she’s held since October of last year. Prior to that she was at fellow local agency Nodos Digital. 
 
So what keeps this Argentine in Peru ticking? We tapped Jorgelina for her Essential List.
