The Campaign Palace Jakarta appoints Ronny Pratama as creative director
11 July, 2012
— The Campaign Palace Jakarta has announced the appointment of award-winning art director Ronny Pratama as creative director, effective immediately.
Pratama’s 13 years of industry experience span across multiple categories including baby care, automotive, alcohol, retail and tobacco.
An alumnus of Sydney’s well-known Billy Blue College of Design, Pratama has a string of local creative awards as well having won a prestigious Cannes Lion in 2011.
Having started out as freelance graphic designer and multimedia interactive designer, Pratama first joined a local agency in Jakarta in 1999, before moving into multinational agencies, experiencing different challenges and learning a lot from his advertising seniors along the way.
Adam Lau, general manager of The Campaign Palace Jakarta said, “We welcome Ronny on board as part of our continued expansion here at The Campaign Palace. We’ve gone from strength to strength with a string of business wins including Sony, MINI and Softex Indonesia - all within the space of less than 9 months.”
“Joining The Campaign Palace is a really interesting challenge and an honour. We are now the torch bearers for a brand that has been deeply rooted in ground-breaking creative work. The Palace Jakarta hopes to continue this heritage and love for uncompromising creative ideas here and around the Asia region,” added Ronny Pratama.
Pratama attributes his life-long love of art to having been taught to draw by his late father. In his spare time, he likes to exchange knowledge with young artists, graphic designers, graffiti artists, photographers and also film professionals to learn different creativity style-sets.
Commenting on the appointment, Matthew Godfrey, President Y&R Asia said, “The Campaign Palace is an iconic agency brand that is thriving in Asia, we have a rapidly expanding team of very talented people to match the agency’s phenomenal growth in business already this year. We look forward to continued growth and expansion, both in Jakarta and beyond.” Media enquiries
