Hi,

I'm Max Elbo.

I'm currently working at Deloitte in Tokyo, Japan.

I was born in Chile and started working in 2011 at Ogilvy & Mather in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as a Junior Art Director. By the end of 2012 I moved to BBDO Argentina, and a year later I started working as a full-time Freelance Illustrator doing editorial and advertising work, part of it while living in a small town in the mountains of Mexico, in the middle of nowhere. In 2016 I started working as an Art Director at J. Walter Thompson Dubai, and since January 2018 I've been working in Tokyo, Japan, first at Amplifier, doing illustration and animation, and since June 2020, at Deloitte, where I'm currently doing frontend development.
