About Me

I am Saurabh, 26 y.o. Internationally recognised Creative - Art Director. I am known for making stuff happen. I don't shy away from taking lead. I have fought the good fights, created award winning work, brought in clients, managed projects, took the stage. I plan on growing the list.

After graduating with a Bachelor in Applied Arts, I moved from India to Germany to studying Art Direction at Miami Ad School, Hamburg. Given the advantage of three internships in the second year, and that too at leading agencies around the world, it stands pretty obvious why I crossed the oceans in pursuit of happiness.

Currently I am based in Munich and work at Serviceplan Innovation as an Art Director. Our team is responsible for global innovation throughout Serviceplan Group. I have won at Cannes Lions, One Show, D&AD, New York Festival, Eurobest and represented Germany at Annual Art Directors Club of Europe awards as part of raising star in 2015.
