Alex Ohannessian is an Associate Creative Director at J. Walter Thompson, Singapore. Born in Uruguay (yes, slightly obsessed with soccer), he lived in Montevideo, Miami, New York and Seattle, before moving to Singapore with his wife.

Along the way, he’s worked at SapientNitro and Alma DDB in Miami, Proximity BBDO in New York and Publicis in Seattle. He’s also freelanced across the US, at BBH, Fusion and Publicis in New York, and at DDB in San Francisco. He has created award-winning work for global and local clients such as Coca-Cola, Powerade, McDonald’s, Visa, T-Mobile and State Farm, among others.

Alex taught at Miami Ad School’s Miami and New York locations for five-plus years and he lectured at New York University, School of Visual Concepts in Seattle and University of Miami.

A guitar player and bad singer, Alex has yet to record his first triple-platinum album and teach himself to play the piano
