BBH Asia Pacific has welcomed Senior Copywriter Omar Sotomayor and Senior Art Director Gaston Soto to Singapore.
The duo were most recently with Lapiz Leo Burnett Chicago. Omar and Gaston have been producing award winning work across the US and Latin American market for blue chip clients such as P&G, AllState Insurance, Kelloggs and McDonalds.
Omar began his advertising career at Havas Peru (formerly Euros) then spent the next four years as a copywriter at both a marketing and start-up digital boutique before moving to Circus Leo Burnett in Peru and then to Lapiz Leo Burnett Chicago as Senior Copywriter.
Gaston began as a graphic designer at JWT in Peru, later moving as Senior Art Director to Havas Buenos Aires, and then to Circus Leo Burnett in Peru where he began working with Omar. They moved to Lapiz Leo Burnett Chicago as a team.
Omar and Gaston’s collective talent and approach to ideas has earned them accolades that include the Cannes Young Lion Award two years running, making Forbes Magazine’s ‘30 under 30’ marketing and advertising professionals list, and winning leading awards at the Cannes Lions, One Show, El Ojo de Iberoamerica awards, Addys U.S., Mercury Awards, Effie Awards, New York Festival and London International Awards.
Scott McClelland, ECD, BBH Asia Pacific Said : “If you dig a hole from Singapore, you'll eventually come out up in Peru. That's where we went to find these guys. Gaston and Omar are true black sheep - they've done some great work, are super guys and we're lucky to have lured them so far from home”
Gaston and Omar Said : “When we look back, so much BBH work we have seen has inspired us. Now here we are, thankful for the opportunity for this new adventure. We are inspired, challenged and committed to producing the great work a black sheep agency deserves. Hola BBH!"
