Short bio: I've start advertising around 18 years old. I left school to become a photographer assistant, then after 2 years became a young art director.
From my teenage years, I've always love UK advertising especially for the level of crafting
and the power of smart striking ideas. That's why I've spend 5 years working in the london advertising industry (DDB & Mother).

About awards I wont bother you with a long ego list. In short I won 8 Cannes Lions (each for different campaigns and proper brands), few Gold & silver at Clio, few nominations @D&AD, 2 to 3 awards at BTAA, Creative circle, etc... and took several times part of the APA 50 and Gunn report (As a virtuous circle, I was invited as a jury at most of those awards). You can find every details on my website in the awards section: https://damien-bellon-kqmo.squarespace.com
