Ranked No.1 Executive Creative Director in MENA and APAC in 2021 on a number of creative rankings, Ali Rez’s work has been instrumental in Impact BBDO Dubai being named the No.2 Creative Agency In the world on the WARC Report, and has brought tremendous positive impact to business and social causes alike.
Rez currently leads creative output for the Impact BBDO Group across the Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan regions.
Winning more than 600+ international accolades in his career spanning four continents over 20 years, including Cannes Lions Grand Prix, London International Awards, Clios, D&AD, Effies, One Show, and a United Nations Peace Medal. Rez has taken part in all major international and regional award show juries.
Moving from California, Rez currently lives in Dubai, where he is an avid mountain biker. Besides lecturing at Oxford University and St.Martin’s College, Rez has exhibited at Tate UK, spoken at Tedx, captained a cricket county team, and — being a firm believer that curiosity leads to creativity — has traveled to 135 countries.
