Senior Creative Director, Crayons Advertising, India
It’s easy to fall in love with the art of creating advertising when you’re from the land of ideas – India. So 16 years back when I had a choice to become a tea planter or join Ogilvy, the choice was obvious.
After working with network agencies like Leo Burnett, JWT and others, I joined Crayons Advertising a year and half back as Senior Creative Director. This is where I got to engage with serious healthcare brands like Fortis Healthcare, Indra IVF and Apollo Sugar Clinics. It’s been interesting and last year I managed to win about 30 awards in healthcare. My dad always wanted me to be a doctor, he is one and so was my grandad. I guess this is the nearest I get to becoming one.
Over the years I’ve worked on an array of brands from McDonald’s to LG to Amex, and now the healthcare sector equally intrigues and thrills me.
Apart from ideas, I’m insanely fond of tennis and love Roger’s game, but want to see Murray win.
Vice President, Group Creative Director, USA
Andy McAfee believes that emotion leads to engagement. And when a creative campaign imbues strong emotional engagement, it usually helps accelerate brands. And win awards.
Andy joined AbelsonTaylor in 2003 after spending several years working for consumer shops, like Leo Burnett, where he was responsible for campaigns that garnered national and international awards.
When Andy brought his experience, philosophy, and keen eye to AbelsonTaylor, it didn’t take long before he was tapped to help build the direct-to-consumer (DTC) practice for the agency. Today, many of the campaigns he and his team have worked on have won accolades, like the DTC National, Global, In-Awe, MM&M, PM360, Pharma Choice, and Rx Club awards. This past February, his campaign for an oncology drug that treats lung cancer was inducted in the Medical Advertising Hall of Fame.
Not surprisingly, Andy is often asked to pen his perspectives for industry publications. Andy graduated from Yale University and also studied Integrated Marketing Communications at the University of Chicago.
