Wunderman Thompson’s Daniel Bonner has been announced as a juror at this year's Immortal Awards, joining the UK jury, which is supported by Framestore and Company 3.

Daniel is the global chief creative officer at Wunderman Thompson – a responsibility he shares alongside Bas Korsten. Together they are responsible for bringing ambitious clients a competitive advantage through the formidable power of inspiration. Their focus for the agency is raising the standard of the work, inspiring new possibilities, and harnessing the breadth of the company’s capabilities to set new benchmarks for the industry. 

Daniel has a proven track record of innovation and collaboration – establishing and growing teams from which award-winning work has flourished, including the most coveted medals from Cannes Lions, D&AD, Clio, LIA, ADC and One Show. Daniel has also proudly led teams to more than 20 Agency of the Year titles as well as an ‘Agency of the Decade’ award. On a more personal note, Daniel is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and has previously been ranked as the No.1 Digital Creative Director by Campaign and named “Influencer of the Year” by Creativepool. 

Prior to Wunderman Thompson, Daniel served briefly as Wunderman’s global chief creative officer bringing with him a resume that included guiding his previous agency, Razorfish, to a 300% increase in excellence and innovation awards. Prior to this, Daniel worked for 15 years as a creative leader and Chief Creative Officer of AKQA. 

Daniel has served as a Cannes Lions jury member three times, and in 2019 he was a Cannes Lions Jury President and Brand Experience Ambassador. 

In 2021, Wunderman Thompson, under Daniel’s and Bas’s leadership became ‘Most Innovative Agency” at Cannes Lions, winning, amongst others, The Grand Prix in Innovation for Unilever’s ‘Degree Inclusive’, the world’s first accessible deodorant in the world.

When not working, Daniel can be found wearing Lycra and cycling around the south of England - sometimes with his wife and two sons.
