Victor Marx

Senior Integrated Planner

Victor Marx

Victor has been involved in the advertising industry for over a decade. Before joining Edge, he worked for some of the most creative agencies in Brazil such as Saatchi & Saatchi, DDB and Isobar where he led several award-winning cases for clients such as Honda, P&G, Intel, Anheuser-Busch InBev. His passion for sharing knowledge also made him a successful lecturer at ESPM - known as the best advertising school in Latin America. Victor has created a website called Desencannes, wrote and published an ads book and has a weird accent. But what he really finds weird is talking about himself in a third person.

 

Who would play you in a film and why? Brad Pitt. Blond hair, blue eyes, tall, strong, world famous, millionaire and handsome. Just like me. :)

If you were planning a music festival, who – dead or alive – would be your headliner? BB King. I’ve been to all of his concerts in Brazil. I never get tired of listening to Lucille’s strings and his passionate lyrics.

You're given an airplane ticket to anywhere in the world – where do you choose to go (and why)? Could I be given a boat ticket instead? There is no airport in the Amazon Forest. The non-conventional touristic trip I took there changed a lot of concepts in my life and I’d love to go there again.

What's your favourite memory? The picture I took of my wife and my kids on the day my second son was born because on that day my family became complete. It’s technically a bad photo - blurred, wrong lights, terrible angle but it is the most beautiful picture I’ve ever taken.  
 
Who is your inspiration? It changes from time to time. Nowadays I’d say it is my grandpa - Georg Marx. At 18 years old he ran away from Germany just before World War II. He landed in Brazil by himself not knowing anyone or a single word of Portuguese. He had a very decent life, a family and he’s the greatest Brazilian I’ve ever met. One day I’d like my grandchildren to say the same about me: “My Brazilian grandpa was the greatest Aussie I’ve ever met”.
 
You're on a desert island – what album have you brought with you? I wouldn’t take any.  Desert islands have no electricity to play an album. I’d take a battery-operated radio. I’d tune the stations according to my mood and let the stations’ playlist surprise my ears.
 
What would be your death-row dinner? Just a small cereal bar. I’ve heard that being killed on a full stomach is not good for your health.
 
Why Edge? Why not?
