Spotlight on Women Creatives: Carmela Soares, Executive CD, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne

Carmela Soares (1).jpgAs part of a daily series Campaign Brief shines the spotlight on the top female executive creative directors and creative directors in Australia...

Carmela Soares is executive creative director at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne.

Carmela was born in Brazil, daughter of a CD and an Art Director. Her first agency was Lintas, when she was about six. Years later she would join Ogilvy, this time for a job as a copywriter. She's worked at several of the big names before joining Clemenger BBDO Melbourne half a year ago.
Carmela has won more than 100 awards internationally, including Cannes, D&AD, OneShow, Webby's, but she particularly likes to mention Campaign Asia 'Women Leading Change' awards, as well 'B&T Women in Media'. She's also very proud to have spoken at the opening of D&AD Rare.
