About Me

I am Saurabh, 27 y.o. Award-Winning Creative. 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 and so on. I plan on growing the list. I am passionate about technology and try to combine it with human insights.

Currently I am based in Munich and work at Serviceplan Innovation as an Hybrid Creative (Art Director + Creative Producer). Our team is responsible for global innovation throughout Serviceplan Group. My work has been recognised at Cannes Lions, D&AD, CLIO, One Show, New York Festival, Eurobest and so on. I have represented Germany at several occasions as a 'Under 30 Creative’, such as Digital Young Lion at Cannes Lions 2018, Eurobest Young Creatives 2018, Rising Star at ADC Europe Awards 2015. Recently co-facilitated a Generative Design Workshop for ADC Europe Festival 2018.
