It is part CHIAnti, the red Italian wine. Part RA, the sun god of Ancient Egypt.
It translates to “clear valley” in Italian.
My First Name is Paolo (pah-aw-lo).
If I came on the Mayflower my name would have been Paul Clearvalley. I would have been a ball player. I came to America on a TWA flight 29 years ago from Milan, Italy. I’m an Art Director and Graphic Designer, Avid Skier, ex Rugby player and Football (the European kind) watcher.
I started my career in Italy as an Assistant Art Director at the advertising agency DMB&B (D’Arcy Masius Benton & Bowls) in the late ’80s. Looking for bigger and better, I moved to New York City to complete my education at Parsons School of Design and eventually work for the same Agency (where I stayed for 3 years) working with clients such as P&G (Pampers, Always, Charmin and Dash), Burger King, and I was part of the team that won the Alitalia account.
In the mid 90’s, I joined the online start-up, Unicast; one of the pioneers of rich-media online advertising. First as an Associate Creative Director and rising quickly to the title of Creative Director. As head of the creative department, I worked closely with Interactive Agencies, offering them creative services and solutions when not available internally.
