Aste did a lot of pioneering creative work at AKQA, and led and developed some of the work that I'm most proud of from my entire ABI career. Disruptive ideas that not only build the brand but have an almost immediate impact on the business. On top of that Aste is an incredible person. Long story short, you have to know this guy.
Byron BrooksNIKE PORTLAND BRAND DIRECTOR
Aste’s greatness is as a creative guide. His ability to bring you on the journey. It’s easy to accept a brief—and spit something back. It’s art to capture collective creative expressions, guide the unknowledgeable participants through the process, and provide a deep feeling of ownership. This is the power of Aste.

I had the pleasure of working with Aste while he was at TBWA NY. He led large cross-functional teams in the creation and development of massive, integrated advertising campaigns. I attest that he is one of the foremost artists of this realm, with his versatility and unerring instincts earning the respect, admiration, and attention of a distinguished roster of clients.

Working with Aste is truly inspirational. He always brings initial briefs to the next level and makes it happen even though there are many challenges in its path His talent is not only about his creativity, but also his limitless efforts behind his creativity I'm excited to work more together.
Alejándro TorresNIKE + JORDAN BRAND DIRECTOR
Providing creative solutions to business challenges is very much apparent in Aste's body of work. What’s become even more apparent as we continue to work together, is that his great work is largely due to his willingness to work as a partner and a leader in the creative process.
As a creative partner, Aste's ability to genuinely consider the opinion and enthusiasm of the team, and determine the sound parts to be woven in to the collective story to be told is truly amazing.
As a leader, he is respectful in his pursuit of a solution and has the ability to take the team to new heights. He does this as he leads by example, constantly searching for answers and motivating others to push the bounds of what can be done.

Aste comes to mind when I think of the best advertising talent on the world stage. We cut our teeth on both sides of the most iconic brands... and I've been looking for an excuse to work with him again ever since.
Out-of-the-box thinking but still on brief. Not just creative for the sake of being creative, as he really works hard to make the benefit come to life.
Liana YuABBOT DIGITAL MARKETING DIRECTOR
Aste is by far the most talented creative I've worked with. He always brings not only the best idea, but also the most suitable. The greatest thing about him is his ability to constantly wow and inspire clients.
Tomas AgánaPHAREX PRESIDENT
Aste was the creative genius behind one of the most successful advertising campaigns of the company. It was a pleasure working with him in developing the campaign. As he discussed his ideas with us, he was very engaged in soliciting feedback.

I worked with Aste when I was with FAGE Greek Yogurt. We needed a creative campaign that would help us celebrate the everyday goodness of our plain Greek yogurt. Aste and his creative team created a beautiful homage to everyday moments, made magical by the simple taste of FAGE. I loved hearing Aste conceptualize the idea - his vision was romantic, mysterious, intriguing - yet it was also right there in front of you, right in your fridge. He has an exceptional gift with storytelling, but what I also loved about working with Aste is how thoughtful he is. Every detail was well thought out and considered. It was one of the best creative experiences I've had in my 12-year branding career.
