My Latest Work



Robert Kleman began his career in advertising with a double major in Criminology from the University of Melbourne in Australia while playing college tennis. Badly.

He furthered his studies at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, where he focused on advertising and graduated as valedictorian. After a decisive point of time at Grey Melbourne, Robert decisively decided to move abroad and joined TBWA\Singapore in 1999.

During his 6-year tenure, he rose to become a Creative Partner in the agency heading up the Sony, BMW and MINI accounts. In 2005/2006 Robert was ranked the ‘Number 1 Most Awarded Creative in Asia’ by Campaign Brief Asia magazine. His creative work and new business wins helped TBWA\ become Agency of the Year in 2004/2005/2006.

Robert then relocated to TBWA\Chiat\Day New York as an Associate Creative Director in 2005. There, some of his work on the Snickers and Absolut Vodka accounts helped propel the agency to become the most awarded advertising agency in the world according to The Gunn Report and Creativity magazine in 2007.

Robert then worked at Euro RSCG Worldwide NY as an Executive Creative Director on The Dos Equis account and at BBH NY across the entire agency roster.

He permalanced at BBDO NY for nearly a year before accepting a Creative Director position at Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Miami on Jose Cuervo and Under Armour.

Yesterday he was the Executive Creative Director of Sapient Nitro in Miami where he enjoyed the sunshine on a daily basis.

Today he is a freelance Creative Director of BBH Shanghai.
