Tomas Ostiglia was recently named Executive Creative Director of LOLA MullenLowe Madrid, Spain´s #1 ranked creative agency. Tomás ranks as the 3rd Best Creative Director in the World in the 2018 Cannes Report and is a renowned creative with more than 20 years of experience in crafting effective and award winning campaigns. As Creative Director for Unilever’s Magnum Ice cream global account, he helped them grow to become a Billion Euro brand in addition to winning many Cannes Lions and Effies along the way.
Tomás is not afraid of change. Originally from Argentina, he has moved back and forth between rock ‘n roll and advertising, from South America to Europe many times, and he’s still at it today. He started as an intern at Mollá & Mollá and two years later left as a Creative Director. He had a brief stint at DeLuca before joining Ogilvy and then moving to Spain to join FCB/Tapsa where he became Executive Creative Director and later, at Arnold, as General Creative Director. In 2008 he returned to Argentina as Chief Creative Officer at Savaglio/TBWA, then founded his own agency, OCG, before moving back to Spain to join LOLA MullenLowe in 2014.
For the past 5 years, Tomás has been responsible for award winning creative work for Magnum, Cornetto, Pescanova and Scrabble, while helping to build top brands like PG Tips, San Miguel, Burger King, Cabify and Libero. While at LOLA, he helped lead the agency to win Agency of the Year at El Sol three times in five years and rank among the world´s Top 20 in Cannes. He has served on the Cannes Lions Jury, London International jury, El Ojo de Iberoamerica and El Sol and he is a member of the MullenLowe Group Global Creative Council. He has won multiple awards at the most important ad festivals around the world (google it for details).
When he´s not at work you might find him on stage playing with his band Trouser, who some say are better than The Strokes (but those “some” have serious hearing problems, he says).
