Creative Art Director based in Los Ángeles.





I'm Nico Mardones (a.k.a Mardo), a Creative Art Director currently working at Conill Saatchi & Saatchi. Although I was born and raised in Chile, and moved to NYC a few years ago, I now call L.A. my home.

I have a strong background in advertising and design, having worked for different agencies and markets, and being recognized in important ad awards (Linkedin knows about that).

Clients list that I’ve worked for includes National Geographic, Toyota, Burger King, Disney, CAT Footwear, Amazon Prime Video, Greenpeace and more.
