I’m Tudor and my work is SOCUCU.

Multidisciplinary creative living and working in Hamburg for Serviceplan x Bubble, trying to prove myself as a game-changer of the telecommunication industry for O2 and other brands part of Serviceplan Group.

Prior to Serviceplan, I had the opportunity to work with the best mentors in 3 of New York’s top ad agencies, Droga5, TBWAChiatDay & 360i as a student of Miami Ad School Europe.

What started as an architecture career, turned out into a creative journey bigger than the buildings I thought I will ever build. Cars made me open Photoshop at the age of 15 and since then there was always a job available for me. I loved being surrounded by creative minds, fact which brought me to my first full-time position working for 2 years as an Art Director in Momentum/McCann Bucharest.

I obsess with craft and lately my worked prove to be successful in many international industry awards shows, like Cannes Lions, Clio Awards & OneShow. I stand curious to explore each day new creative paths that empower me to find unexpected solutions that offer each brand a strong purpose.
