Hello I’m Zahir.
And I like to say interesting things in interesting ways. That’s the long and short of it.
So I wander into unfamiliar places where you’re more likely to find stuff that’s cool and engaging.
Now I like showing up at the table with ideas, stories and material that travel quick and fast. And get a huge kick out of deploying innovative techniques that cut through the clutter. I’m a huge believer in the power of collaboration because good heads around the table make better, so much better.
My work on brands like McDonald’s, Audi, Pepsi, Nestle, Kraft, Whirlpool, Henkel, Emirates, Citibank and Porsche to name a few, have won accolades at the biggest and most competitive Advertising Award Shows: D&AD, One Show, ADC, Andy Awards, Clios, Cannes, LIA, NYF and Effies. Not to mention regional award shows.
Even on my craziest of days, I huff a 10K run, read all the good bits of the New York Times, work on a screenplay, curate an Instagram post and make messy attempts at abstract art with my daughter.
