( – JY Lay is the latest talent to join BBDO Malaysia as their Creative Director focusing on digital growth. Lay joined BBDO after a very successful stint in Creative Juice/TBWA where he picked up several awards in Cannes, Spikes, Kancils, Effie, LIA, NY Fest.

Lay a Proximity alumni, was in the digital team during Proximity’s heyday and was instrumental in some of controversial work for Fonterra’s “Semak Gula” which back in the day caused a storm in the Growing up Milk Powder category.

Another earlier addition is Shune who also joined from Creative Juice/TBWA as a Creative Director. There he was famous for his work on Nando’s, Cornetto and Tesco. One of the most sought after copy-based CDs in Malaysia, Shune comes from a below-the-line background who is talented in creating memorable copies.

“I’m really happy to be reunited with Lay and Shune, some of the guys I really enjoyed working with in my previous stint. The kind of guys who get us excited to go to work everyday just to see what they cook up with the team. They are Yin and Yang of sorts. Total opposites who make magical work together. One logic, one magic. I’m so excited about the kinda work we are gonna cook up here at BBDO. We’ve also got a really young creative team under them with some of the best talent in town,” shared VJ Anand ECD BBDO Malaysia

John Teoh, General Manager of BBDO Malaysia shared “It’s fantastic to see Lay come home to BBDO. More than just a great creative talent, he has amassed a wealth of experience and knowledge in digital which I believe will contribute immensely to our efforts in growing our digital offering. BBDO has always been a great place for creativity and I am confident that with VJ, Shune and Lay’s creative leadership, BBDO Malaysia will continue to thrive and produce great work for all our Clients. I would definitely watch this space!”

BBDO has been strengthened its creative team not just with the addition of the senior hires. In the last 8 months, they have hired some of the best young creatives in the country.
