LARA ACCAOUI, 29, ART DIRECTOR, GREY
Nominated by Nadim Khoury, CEO, Grey MENA
“Since joining Grey back in 2018, Lara has helped shape the creative environment in the oﬃce, with her always positive attitude. She has injected a fun, helpful and constructive spirit into the department. Her proactive approach to briefs and tasks is really inspiring and stirring. Let alone her excellent and valuable contribution to great ideas, and impeccable art direction. She is really a true creative talent who is an asset to any agency.”
She graduated from ALBA in 2010 with a BA in advertising. Her career began at Intermarkets in 2012, working on Almaza and Bank of Beirut. In 2015, She joined Ogilvy, where she designed the oﬃcial poster for the 2016 Cannes Young Lions. In 2018, she joined Grey Beirut and has been working since on local and regional clients.
She is always learning how to improve and never stops discovering new things. Nevertheless, it’s okay for her to ask for help. The best lessons and tricks were learned from colleagues (seniors as well as juniors). Team spirit takes her a long way, as part of a group as well as an individual.
