Razvan Capanescu is an internationally award winning creative director, with an appetite for travelling. Starting with August 2016, he embraced another challenge, taking the Chief Creative Officer role at McCann Worldgroup Prague.
He used to be the Chief Creative Officer of Leo Burnett and of Publicis Bucharest, places where he has consistently steered the group into the top agencies of Central and Eastern Europe.
He also coordinated the digital mavericks there, getting some of the best gigs out of it – like one of his dearest and most awarded campaigns: "Hack-this-site.com and you're hired", for Bitdefender (data security global champion). His digital work for ING Bank, Microsoft, Orange or Renault didn’t go unnoticed either.
Razvan is to be found guilty of several creative premiers of its former agencies: the first Cannes Lions, the first golds at the International Golden Drum Festival, the first Epica Awards, the first admissions in the prestigious Luerzer’s Archive and the first Intercontinental Advertising Cup won by a local agency.
Born in ‘74, Razvan graduated the Law School but didn’t pursue a lawyer career (in spite of his parents despair). Over 19 years now, he pleads for brands such as: Bata, Gambrinus, Kozel, MasterCard, ĽOreal or Vodafone - to name just a few of the most recent ones.
All the nights spent in the name of brands paid off and now Razvan can mention awards at: AdPrint Festival, ADOR, AdSpot Award, AD Stars (Asia), Cresta, Epica, Effie, Eurobest, Golden Hammer, Golden Drum, The Intercontinental Advertising Cup, London International Awards, New York Festivals, and Cannes Lions.
