Noel Artiles ECD / Creative Director
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me. To start, I personally believe that great work is born from smart thinking, passion, craftsmanship, teamwork, and fearlessness. These are principles that I apply to every project I touch, and they are also the principles I strive to teach the people I work with and manage.
I am an experienced Creative Director with over 20 years of experience. I am driven by craft, purpose, and passion. I enjoy being hands-on and inspiring my teams to think big. Visual design and storytelling are my superpowers, and my objective is to build forward-thinking creative teams, nurture and enhance strong brands, and assist my clients in solving their most complex problems. I am seeking to become a trusted and valued creative partner by your side.
I'm a Creative Director based in Miami, Florida. I began off my journey in Miami as a graphic designer & Art Director at MTV Latam and some smaller local marketing and design firms.
Fast forward to 2003, and I landed a gig at PGI, which was a big player in e-marketing down in the South Eastern US. That crew eventually morphed into Sapient. During my time at PGI/Sapient, I got to roll up my sleeves on some killer digital campaigns that snagged awards. Think Citibank, Celebrity Cruises, and SOBE Wine and Food Festival.
From there, I made my way up to the bright lights of Digitas NY as an Art Director. American Express and Samsung were on my radar – exciting times!
After a solid stretch in the Big Apple, I felt the pull back to Miami and SapientNitro. I got to be the mastermind behind some campaigns that snagged awards. We're talking iconic names like the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Samsung, Dodge, Chrysler, and Twix to name a few.
Then, the winds of change blew me over to Y&R Miami. There, I took the reins as Creative Director and Digital Creative Lead on the FedEx and Dell accounts. My team crushed it with award-winning work in the LATAM and US Hispanic markets. Plus, I dabbled in projects with cool cats like Hershey's, Wendy's, and AT&T.
Next stop: Creative Director at the PWC Experience Center. I was in the mix, helping Fortune 100 players transform their businesses and cook up digital solutions. And just before now, I was holding the fort as Executive Creative Director at Glue IQ, lending a hand to global and national brands as they tackled branding, marketing, and business transformation challenges.
As of today, I'm a Senior Delivery Principal at Slalom Consulting. But that's not all – I've got another hat as Founding Partner and Executive Creative Director at Odd Creative, a boutique agency that's all about creative thinking, slick design, and innovative solutions.

When I’m not in the office working or running around after two very active beautiful children, I get my hands dirty working on my 2 project show cars. I’ve spent years working on them and I do my best to design, fabricate, and install as much as possible myself. Why? Because I love challenges and I love to make things that have not been seen before.
Now enough about me. Let me hear about you.
If you think we should be working together let's connect.
