Campaign’s Creative Faces to Watch 2020 – Peter Halim, Copywriter, Wunderman Thompson
Mohamed Fouad, ECD, Wunderman Thompson: Peter has shown many prevailing qualities over the course of his time at JWT, but I’d highlight his persistency. Peter is eager to learn, a student of the industry, constantly trying to evolve and further hone his skills, and that is a rare breed to find. This led to multiple successful campaigns over the course of 15 months and he quickly became our resident all-purpose copywriter. His studies in the art of performance have earned him a favourable position among many of our clients, as they constantly ask for Peter to deliver the right emotion in any given copy.
Throughout my journey to, miraculously, graduate from pharmacy school, I worked in a local ad agency (2015), where I had the time to read all the books and take all the courses with actual confrontation to the real market. After that I moved to a bigger agency (2017) where I gained more exposure to bigger projects with well-established clients. I then moved to explore the world of writing for showbiz, which I greatly loved, but, when I had to choose, with all confidence I joined JWT as a copywriter(2018) and here I am.
There must be something between “find what you love and let it kill you” and “put your family and your health first”.
I’ve been working for years now to develop a theatrical musical project. To stop stressing about it, I involved myself in opening a yoga studio.
