Hi!
My name is Kok Wei Tay.

I’m an avid comic fan, video game buff, geek, and art director.

I've always loved sketching since I was in school. While this obsession to draw anythingand everything landed me into trouble quite a few times, especially with my math professor who didn't quite like his caricature. It also got me into Limkokwing University where I gotmy Graphic Design Degree.

Advertising followed naturally when OgilvyOne Worldwide in Malaysia took me onand gave me the opportunity to hone my talent on various accounts from Guinness andIBM to Nokia and Nestlé. I didn't let them down, winning 2 Bronze trophies fromthe Direct Marketing Association of Malaysia.

More opportunities came a-knocking and I joined Crush Advertising the following year.After an interesting 6 months there, I looked to broaden my horizons at JWT Singapore, where I was working on exciting brands like HSBC, SilkAir, Pizza Hut, Bayer and Nokia.I was also fortunate enough to bring my first Silver Lion home at Cannes 2010 forCholula Hot Sauce campaign.

Then came my time at Publicis Singapore in 2013. There, I handled AXA Life Insurance as a main account along with Citibank, Scoot, and P&G. I was lucky enough to bag several awards, like Spikes Asia, Adfest, CCA, Effies, MEA, Markies and so on. I was also involved in the HPB business pitch, which we won.

Currently, I am writing my newest chapter in M&C Saatchi as Senior Art Director,and I am hungry for more great things in my career…
