Hailing from Barcelona, Ernest Desumbila’s distinct visual style has earned him recognition as one of Europe’s most in demand directors. His recent campaign for Adidas ‘There Will Be Haters’ starring football royalty Luis Suarez, Gareth Bale and Leo Messi, afforded him a Cannes Young Director Award in 2015, a Bronze Lion and his work has twice been selected for Vimeo’s Staff Pick.
Desumbila’s eye for design and animation has seen him impress global clients Jagermeister and Peugeot, along with agencies in France, Spain and The U.K., including BETC and Iris Worldwide.
