Kiwi.com builds strong in-house creative team
- Christopher Wechsler and Jiří Kirchner from DDB, Lucie Vestfálová from Made by Vaculik and Martin Gluvňa previously at WMC/GREY
27 June 2022, Prague – Travel-tech company Kiwi.com announces that it has established an in-house creative team powered by talents from Czech agencies to lead the creative for brand activations and Above the Line communication.
Czech-American Christophe Wechsler, who previously worked as a Senior Art Director at DDB Prague and prior to that at WMC/GREY and Fallon, was appointed to the position of Creative Lead. He will head up a creative team with the vision to transform and grow the team to lead the creative for brand activations and ATL communication. Wechsler is well known in the industry for his award-winning creative work for brands like ŠKODA, RC Cola and Kofola picking up multiple awards and nominations.
“Opportunities like this don’t pop up everyday. When I came, all I knew about Kiwi.com is that it’s a Czech company that sells airline tickets. But the more I learned about it, the more I fell in love with what they are doing and their mission. With all of Kiwi.com’s innovations, there is plenty of meat for our creative briefs. In addition, we can focus all the energy we would normally spend on multiple clients and pitches into one brand. We are in essence our own clients,” said Christophe Wechsler, Kiwi.com Creative Lead.
In addition to Wechsler, further talent joining this team comes with the hiring of Jiří Kirchner as a Senior Creative Copywriter, who previously worked at DDB, Y&R and Scholz & Friends, Lucie Vestfálová as a Senior Project Manager with experience from Made by Vaculik, Oliver agency, Fallon and McCann, as well as Martin Gluvňa, Senior Brand Designer who previously worked for WMC/GREY and otherwise as a freelancer.
Kiwi.com’s ambitions do not stop here, with plans to extend this in-house model to bring in more talent from the industry, connect with local design and communication schools and partner directly with some of the local production houses for upcoming projects.
