Joris Kuijpers, born in ‘s-Hertogenbosch 1971, is working in advertising since 1998. He started his career as a strategic advertising planner, as he was advised not to become an advertising creative because of his light color blindness.
But after two years of planning he decided, despite his color blindness, that he would like to be an art director.And so, in 2000 he started his career as a junior creative together with copywriter Dylan de Backer at Result DDB in Amstelveen.
In 2003 they moved to Lowe to come back three years later as creative directors for DDB Amsterdam. In addition, they took place in the Global Creative Council of the DDB Worldwide network.
In 2012 they were responsible for the successful creative merge between DDB and its digital daughter Tribal. One of the highlights was 2014, when the merged agency DDB & Tribal Amsterdam became agency of the year in Holland. As well in digital as traditional advertising.
