PAOLO RIZZO

President / Creative Director


A creative veteran with a diverse, hands-on career spanning over 20 years. Paolo founded Badpixel in 2013 after building and managing Y&R’s broadcast studio in Toronto – one of the industry’s first profitable in-house, full-service CG and post facilities.

Before Y&R, Paolo freelanced for a decade as an art director, illustrator, video graphic artist and writer. He worked for several agencies and many more clients, generating everything from editorial illustrations to animated broadcast spots for Ford, Jaguar, LG, Dell, Royal Canadian Mint, Advil, Miller, Ontario Tourism, Scotiabank, Robax, Labatt, Budweiser and others.
