Raquel Vega — Art Director



Skip Ad

Pronounced [rah:kel]

I’m a Spice Girl aspirant, turned Wannabe art director.

I went through 31 years in a row without dying: 7 years in ad-making, less than 4 existential crises, and 1 ban from the US. The last one is a lie, but now that I have your attention, I’ll skip to the facts.

I like lurking offline and online, from awkward interactions on the train to reading strangers’ discussions on the internet. I love silly, I crave witty, and I strive for simplicity, whether it’s a meme, print ad, or a TikTok. All these ingredients serve me as inspiration for my sassy comebacks or campaign ideas.

There is no girl band, but I’m preparing my my next hit.
