Ranked amongst the Top 15 Creative Directors and the
Top 10 Art Directors in the world by the The Big Won Report,
Ali Rez has won practically every major advertising award
in his 17+ year career.
Rez started as a Physics undergraduate before ending up
in advertising in San Francisco, where – when not involved
in mountain biking accidents - he spent more than a
decade working on global brands such as Adobe, 7UP,
ChevronTexaco and HP.
In quest for adventure, Rez moved to the Middle East, and
quickly became one of the most prolific award winners in
the region, while managing blue chip accounts such as
PepsiCo, P&G, MasterCard, Lipton, Nestlé and Pfizer across
the Middle Eastern, African and South Asian regions.
Besides leading BBDO Pakistan to be named Agency of the
Year twice in a row (2015, 2016), Rez has won more than
150 international awards, and has been part of prestigious
jury panels at Clios, Effies, Andy Awards and Spikes Asia.
Rez has lived and worked in several cities - including Beijing,
San Francisco, New York, London, Lahore, and Dubai.
He has spoken at Tedx, exhibited at major museums such
as Tate UK, lectured at Oxford University, captained a
cricket team in California, and - being a firm believer that
curiosity leads to creativity - has traveled to 115 countries.
