Hi Sir/ Madam,
I am writing to express my interest in applying for the position of Senior Art Director at your agency. With nearly 15 years in the advertising field between Europe and the Middle East, and my ability to translate business requirement into effective advertising campaigns, I am confident that my passion and experience will match your agency objectives...
I had the chance to work with some highly reputable agencies worldwide; recently i just finished image campaign McDonalds (umbrella for 2014, agency DDB Czech Rep) and image campaign for client Raiffeisen bank agency Mccann Ericksonn Prague as Creative Leader/Senior Art Director.
Before i worked as freelance senior AD/idea maker for companies MARK/BBDO Prague, Ogilvy Prague, Leo Burnett Czech/Slovakia, Insigniaworldwide (Dubai, UAE) as well as employee for VCCP Prague where I worked as a Creative Leader/Senior Art Director on their biggest client account Telefonica O2 for Czech and Slovakian market. I also provided external consultant services for DDB on their T-Mobile account in Czech Republic. Most importantly, I have extensive experience in the Middle East, where I completed 4 years as a Senior Art Director with BatesPangulf (BPG part of the WPP group) in Kuwait with HQ in Dubai. Prior to that I was based in Prague, Czech Rep where I earned great knowledge and experience on the local, European and International market during my employment with Mccann Erickson, Wunderman, J.W.T and Grey, which led me to many awards in the industry.
As a Senior Art Director in Kuwait, my responsibilities varied from team leader/concept to ideas generation, leading all image products from conceptualization to implementation. I prepared for them not only 360 degree ATL advertising (TVC, print, outdoors) but also BTL material (i.e. annual reports and company profiles, logos etc). BPG’s leading accounts are M.H. Alshaya Co. (leading names in International franchise retailing) for whom we adapted all advertising campaigns to the entire GCC and some MENA countries, and IT/telecom companies (Tawasul, Viva, Wataniya etc), in addition to many real estate agencies.
I’m currently in Dubai, where is living my wife. But i'm eager to join the advertising hub of the GCC region (Dubai/Abu Dhabi/Doha, Manama, Kuwait) where I believe I can put my skills to practice and enjoy interacting with this eclectic market which attracts me a lot.
I can assure you that my experience, industry knowledge and track record to date make me a strong candidate for this role.
