Campaign’s Creative Faces to Watch 2022 – Krishna Girish, Account Manager, Face to Face

Age: 28

Christopher Bell, CEO and Partner, Face to Face: When I received a call from McGarryBowen Bangalore telling me that they had a “truly outstanding account exec looking to relocate to the UAE” and asking me if I would be willing to meet her, I accepted but more from a perspective of doing them a favour than anything else. Little did I know that they were the ones doing us a favour as we finished up recruiting one of the best Account people that have walked through the doors of the agency.

Clear, composed, measured, insightful, unfailingly hard-working and incredibly smart, Krishna really does have it all.

Career highlights

A creative space is all I’ve ever wanted to work in – one that would never stop challenging my mind, and where no two days are the same. What drove me into the ad world was exactly this.

It’s been the most rewarding journey since, where I’ve transitioned from a young, soft-spoken, curious outsider to a (still young) confident, reliable and solution-focused professional. I’ve worked with some of the most popular brands in the Middle East such as Meydan, Masafi, Motiongate (no, not another M name!) and the most recent global triumph, Expo 2020 Dubai.

Guiding principles

To never stop growing.

With every brief, every project, every year, I’ve grown a little. Along the way, I’ve picked up productive habits, and developed clearer mindsets and better approaches to work. Looking back at my growth is the most fulfilling experience. This keeps me ticking.

Side hustle

I like to do a bit of copywriting when the real copywriters aren’t looking!
