Risto Mejide fame is irrefutable proof that his method works. This Barcelona-born publicist, TV host and writer is an expert in branding and brand content creation, particularly in relation to personal brands. So what defines him? A caustic, direct style that brims with irony, with which he has been able to stand out as a producer in a really competitive way.
The founding principle advocated by the agency of which he is a partner and Creative Director, Aftershare.tv, is that brands can and must be co- producers of their own content. Risto Mejide maintains that advertising should create experiences and engage people not through formats but rather ideas.

He calles his method annoyance marketing and it is connected with his ability to identify positioning opportunities in current popular culture. He demonstrated it as a bold, critical judge on the famous talent show Operación Triunfo and it has enabled him to become Spain’s best- known publicist.
Since then he has published several books on marketing and entrepreneurial initiative: Urbrands, No busques trabajo, (Don’t Look for Work), #Annoyomics and El sentimiento negativo (Negative Feelings). He has also contributed to the book Marketing para Dummies (Marketing for Dummies). In 2016 he has published X about his thoughts and emotions.
