Sunil Jumde Creative Director (Art)
A visual dreamer and innovative designer, Sunil has over three decades of advertising experience. Following a five year Fine Arts Course in Chitrakala Mahavidyalaya, Nagpur – an affiliate of JJ School of Arts, Mumbai – Sunil was campus recruited by RK Swamy. The journey from RK Swamy, then one of the leading advertising agencies in India to JWT, considered the ‘University of Advertising,’ was a truly remarkable one.
During his seven and a half year stint at JWT, Sunil worked on brands like Wipro, Sun Microsystems, Kingfisher Beer, McDowells, Red Lable, 3 Roses, Kiwi Shoe Polish and more, picking on the way an award for an innovative press advertisement.
When he is not creating magic with colours, typography and designs or dreaming up out-of-the-box concepts, he loves to potter around in his garden.
