We’ve received confirmation that Pablo Velez, who’s spent over the last two-plus years as senior art director at Translation, has parted ways with the agency. According to those in the know, it was “a mutual agreement with the new management” at the New York-based operation that both parties call it a day. Though his title was technically art director (or lead art director, depending on who you ask) at Translation, one tipster sings his praises, saying that Velez “crafted JAY Z’s Budweiser Made in America Festival from concept to production, the Budweiser Made for Music Global campaign with Rihanna, and the launch of Bud Light Platinum.” We’ve inquired with Translation on a couple of things including the Velez departure this week, but have yet to hear any word. From what we’ve been told, Velez, who also had AD stints at Gotham and Cossette during his career, is taking some time off for now, though freelancing is not out of the question.
