Selim Ünlüsoy is the Executive Creative Director at Ogilvy Istanbul and GTB Istanbul. He also is a Board Member at EDCOM, part of The European Association of Communication Agencies. At the age of 29, he became the youngest ECD ever at a network agency in Turkey. Before joining Ogilvy Istanbul, he has worked at Leo Burnett Moscow and Istanbul, Lowe Istanbul and DDB&Co., contributing to the agency's success to become one of the top 3 agencies of the year in Cannes Lions.

Selim's work has won many international trophies in Cannes Lions, Golden Drum, One Show, New York Festivals, London International Awards, Epica, as well as national awards like Crystal Apple and Kirmizi, making a total of more than 60 awards and honors. His work was featured in Beaux Arts Magazine, Lürzer's Archive and numerous other publications. He was selected to serve as a jury member in both national and international award shows. 

Outside the agency, he designs and creates mobile applications and branding work dedicated to finding perfect solutions to non-existing problems. Free interactive eye candies to inform and delight.
