Hakuhodo Malaysia reemerges onto the international awards scene

Hakuhodo reemerges onto the international awards scene with multiple wins 

‘Drought’ – the creative piece was done for GREENPEACE. Winner at D&AD Award Show and AdFest 2018.

With two Pencils under their belt in the recent prestigious D&AD Awards 2018, it’s safe to say that Hakuhodo Malaysia has reemerged onto the international awards scene. These awards also mark the only win for Malaysia.
Last year, Hakuhodo Malaysia rose to 5th place in 2017’s Kancil Awards, a local creative festival in Malaysia. They continued their momentum with two golds and a bronze at Adfest 2018, a creative festival in Asia.
Ryusuke Oda, Managing Director of Hakuhodo Malaysia, says that their success has to do with “Being the Experience Leader. It is a philosophy that has helped us to create work that communicates on a human level.”
Hakuhodo’s clients have also praised the recent creative achievements of the agency and are looking forward to more successes in the days to come.
“We can’t rest on our laurels now. Inspired by our recent wins, the creatives teams in our Malaysia office are going for more accolades both locally and globally,” said Woon Hoh, Chief Creative Officer of Hakuhodo Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
