My name is Jonas Kühner and I'm a creative director currently living in São Paulo, Brazil.
For the last 15 years, I’ve been working as a designer, motion designer, art director, and creative director at agencies such as DM9DDB, Leo Burnett, Havas, Edelman, and other places like Catacumba Public Park. (Yes, I’ve worked at a park, and the "office" view was great.)
During this period (2000-2002), I lived in Rio de Janeiro, studying graphic design and splitting my time between surfing, skateboarding, biking, and computer games. This passion for adrenalin and visual ideas inevitably led me to advertising.
With more than a decade of agency experience, my expertise lies in integrated and digital campaigns for local and global brands.
I love building up, inspiring and leading creative teams, and have done so at Havas and Edelman for the past few years. I have won over numerous new clients and become their trusted partner by translating their objectives into creative solutions, always obtaining results.
In 2013, I led the creative team of Havas Digital and we were chosen as Brazil's Agency of the Year by the Havas Group. In 2015/16, I was invited to join the jury of the New York and Adstars Korea advertising festivals, judging the direct and collateral category.
Nowadays, I lead the integrated house agency of Netshoes Group for Brazil/LATAM, one of the world’s most innovative e-commerce startups, where we deliver integrated advertising. I’ve also been dedicating myself to semi-radical sports like raising a child, cooking, yoga, running, Pokemon Go and travel (261,304 km so far, per TripAdvisor data).
