Nelson Silva

Creative Director

My name is Nelson Silva. I believe that feedback is just as important as inspiration. So, as a designer, you need more than good eyes – you need good ears.

For almost two decades Nelson has been a cornerstone of The Works’ design practice, helping to build the company while building his career. As Creative Director, he plays a lead role in setting the creative standard for the studio, using his insights into the aesthetic and strategic objectives of design, while ensuring that projects keep moving and teams stay motivated. He works collaboratively with designers, to make sure they have the support and opportunities they need to contribute their best work. Nelson also works directly with clients, to transform their objectives into breakthrough creative. He plays a central role in our branding practice and led initiatives for Oxford Properties Group, Goldcorp, Corby, Hudbay Minerals and Brookfield Annuity Company.
