Luis Núñez is a misfit creative constantly striving to push the bounds of art and advertising. His background and up bringing taught him early to be curious at all times, adaptable, to take pride in everything he does, and never try to fit in when your meant to break the mold. Luis believes that culture and connectivity are the most powerful components to creating impactful work because authentic connection is what has always moved him and what he sees also moves culture.

He is a multi-disciplined creative manager with expertise in campaign development, art direction, design, creative commerce, digital, social, and omni channel activations.

He currently serve as a Creative Director for VMLY&R overseeing digital first and conversion driven work within the Nutrition portfolio of The Coca-Cola Company, Sam’s Club, and Peru’s Alacena Tari. He passionately serves on the first Advisory Council for New York Festivals DE&I Awards as a board member.

In his spare time he shoots fashion editorials, mentors youth and young creatives, speaks at various engagements, co-produces a YouTube series called “Forever Newlywed” and travels with the love of his life, Kenya.
