Executive Creative Director Creative, VMLY&R, Kenya
Heritage Jury Member
Farhan Mirza is a Kenyan multi-disciplinary storyteller who uses insights and artistic beauty to tell stories. Born in Kenya and has worked across Africa, he now happily believes in the universality of ideas delivered through diversity in execution.
Farhan’s journey is a little different from most. He started his career by dropping out of college at 20, with grand plans of becoming a social entrepreneur. After realising he, quite frankly, sucked at it, Farhan joined an advertising agency as an intern at the age of 21. Fast forward two decades, four agencies, twelve plus different countries and through a whole lot of ass-busting, Farhan is now an Executive Creative Director, Speaker and Mentor.
