Tay Guan Hin
Tay Guan Hin

Guan’s ihaveanidea interview has been a long time coming. After overcoming the most fearsome of obstacles a young creative’s career could face (Guan’s parents were both doctors), he went on to become one of the most respected creative leaders in the industry. Not only has his work received every accolade there is and his presence been requested to judge the most prestigious of award shows, but perhaps more tellingly, he has always been a huge supporter of young talent.

Hey advertising creatives! Allow me to let you all in on a little secret about the future of the ad business. Are you ready? Here it goes…
The future is digital.
Okay, okay, maybe that isn’t such a revelation. But it wasn’t that long ago when things like super-interactive websites, mobile content and social [...]

Kash Sree
Kash Sree

Executive Creative Director
Pereira & O’Dell
Kash Sree is one of those guys who could tell you how to make your ads better and then proceed to kick your ass.

Ty Montague
Ty Montague

Co-President, Chief Creative Officer North America
JWT
Normal. That’s probably the best way to describe Ty Montague. He’s not into lecturing or pontificating. Doesn’t claim to know “the” way to save the industry. Got sidetracked by “women and beer” in college, worked odd jobs and did a bunch of other things normal people do. And now he’s [...]

Thirasak Tanapatanakul
Thirasak Tanapatanakul

Worldwide Chairman
Creative Juice, Bangkok

There’re always grounds for suspicion when an award show jury is announced and Thirasak Tanapatanakul’s name isn’t on the list.
Or on the shortlist, as is the case. During his six years tenure at the helm of Creative Juice Bangkok, he scored major accolades at all the local and international award shows, [...]

Writer/Director
Pirate 
It’s kinda funny that it has taken me all these years to get a legend like Terry O’Reilly to grace ihaveanidea’s Creatives section. On a personal note, Terry is the first advertising creative I ever met, and several months after that, he was the first ad guy to ever see my portfolio (and probably a [...]

Masako Okamura
Masako Okamura

Creative Director
Dentsu, Tokyo

A good friend of mine always says that “Living in Tokyo is the closest you’ll to get to living on another planet”.
While the accuracy of that statement is debatable, it made me realize that IHAVEANIDEA’s considerable interview vault had yet to include someone from the land of the rising sun.
Masako is the first [...]

Jim Riswold

Semi-Retired Advertising Executive and Semi-Retarded Artist
Wieden+Kennedy, Portland

You can take the man out of Wieden+Kennedy.
Jim Riswold is, in the words of Esquire magazine, “The reason you know that Bo knows. He’s the reason you are Tiger Woods. He’s the guy who paired MJ with Mars. He’s the guy who paired MJ with a rabbit. He is [...]
