About me

I am Rachna, a creative director at Iris Amsterdam.

Starting out as an art director, I have worked with 3 different agencies in 3 different countries and been on the brand side for a year.
Highlights include: Making Frank de Boer actually smile, turning a beer bottle into a banger, having a go at POTUS, pissing off influencers, bringing Van der Sar out of retirement, convincing a client to build an AR app way ahead of time and working on a Saudi lingerie brand.

I enjoy ideas that become a part of the culture and hack their way into our hearts & minds.
