AGENCY.ASIA • Issue #03
In the second part of our series on BBDO, we talk to Suthisak Sucharittanonta, the Chairman & Chief Creative Officer of BBDO Bangkok - and the most awarded Creative Director in Asia.
So awarded that he has been stuck on Campaign Brief Asia Thailand's Creative Ranking #1 spot since 2001, not to mention he was also the Asia-Pacific's most awarded creative director in 1998 and 2001. Just announced, the Campaign Brief Asia Creative Rankings put him in 10th across the Asia-Pacific. Suthisak is a man of few words, but we managed to squeeze a few out of him for this exclusive interview.
AirAsia vs Neil French vs McCann. You might remember in our last edition that we published a name-and-shame list of well-known companies that do business with Burma's military regime and we asked our readers to respond. They did - and the results were thought provoking to say the least.
Last time we tried to hook up with Ruth Lee, she had just judged the outdoor category at Adfest and was back on a plane to Hong Kong before the event had officially began.
Her stellar success and frenetic working life seems almost incongruous when you discover that this laid back woman - formerly the host of Hong Kong's #1 rated radio show - is equally at home mixing Chinese herbal remedies as she is heading up the creative department of a highly awarded advertising apothecary, DDB Hong Kong.
