Creative Director, SYMBIO Digital, Czech Republic

Miky spent most of his professional career working for international network agencies based in Prague, such as GREY or BBDO. With a strong need to explore the possibilities of digital environments, he then moved to the Czech independent agency SYMBIO, which is well known for its digital roots. Miky believes, that combining strong conceptual thinking with the latest trends and technological conveniences is the right approach to create ads, people want to interact with. 

For his work, Miky has been awarded local and international awards for creativity and effectiveness as well. In 2013 he won the national Young Lions competition in the Cyber category and represented the Czech Republic at the world finals at Cannes Lions festival. This was a really eye-opening experience for him. Miky also had the privilege to be part of the ADC Czech Republic Creative Awards jury and Young Lions Czech Republic jury. 

After the work is done (which is almost never), Miky enjoys a nice walk or bike ride through the glorious Czech countryside. And hey, a little glass of beer never killed anybody, right?
