Pansy Aung
Creative Director • Art Director

Hello (.❛ ᴗ ❛.)ノ


I’m a hands-on Creative Director and Art Director with 10+ years' experience in top creative and in-house agencies. A practical dreamer, I’ve a proven track record in leading award-winning integrated campaigns from concept to production.

Crafting meaningful impact - whether on social, on screens, on the street or all of the above, is my happy place.

I’m also an active industry mentor and enjoy making awareness campaigns for nonprofits in my own time.

In the weekends you’ll find me cycling, windsurfing or running after my toddler.

Recent career highlight: Seeing my campaign butchered on the front page of Daily Mail for being too woke. I’ll wear it as a badge of honour.
