ABOUT

Icaro Doria

Icaro is the Chief Creative Officer of Hill Holliday, where he is responsible for the creative vision of one of the most legendary agencies in the world.

Prior to Hill Holliday, Icaro was the Global Chief Creative Officer for Havas Health & You, the largest Health focused advertising network in the world, where he worked with over two dozen CCOs in nearly 60 offices around the globe. 

While there, he led the rebranding of the company and pushed for digitally led non-traditional ideas that connected with people on an emotional level.

Before Havas, Icaro was the US CCO at Arnold Worldwide, where he completely revitalized the agency’s creative reputation and pushed its work away from traditional TV into big ideas that earned a disproportionate amount of attention. Carl’s Jr., Hardee’s, Sam Adams and Hilton were among the new business wins, which complimented the fact that the agency had its best-ever result at Cannes, D&AD, the One Show and the Effies.

Prior to Arnold, Icaro was the CCO at DDB NY.

Philip Khosid
Co-Founder Battery Agency
ABOUT

Philip Khosid

For Battery founding partner/CCO Philip Khosid, advertising is the culmination of his experiences trying to live the biggest life possible. As for those experiences, Toronto-born Philip was planting the seeds of a young Art Director early on, designing flyers and animated visuals for the 90s club scene. The most fortuitous mistake was ignoring his pre-med studies at university, with those carefree days (reckless, some could say) informing Philip’s approach to leading both creative and strategy at Battery.  

Previously, he was the Executive Creative Director of DARE NYC, LA and Toronto, and also led teams at Grey Worldwide and BBDO. Launching Battery in 2014, Philip assembled a team of top creatives from Chiat, Deutsch, Saatchi and 72. Since then, the agency’s work has seen accolades from the big five awards shows, and in 2016, Philip was also named among AdAge’s 40 under 40. 

Given his anti-establishment spirit – part punk, part pirate – paired with his ‘live the biggest life’ philosophy, it’s no surprise that Philip doesn’t consider ‘vice’ a dirty word. As he says, “Exploring a vice means you aren’t blindly consuming; you’re becoming an expert and connoisseur of something with intent. It only turns negative when it becomes over-consumption.”

Philip’s instinct for reexamining the popular point of view comes through in the work that Battery produces – advertising created for clients and consumers, not for industry peers. (“We’re monopolizing someone's time without their permission. I think we owe it to them to entertain them in one way or another.”) Whether that calls for pyrotechnics and effects, or deafening silence – it always starts with the biggest, purest form of an idea. Then, says Philip, that idea needs to be constantly questioned and pushed against. “Not to shock for shock’s sake, but let’s not sit around with platitudes. I want to get to the morsel of the truth - that’s when advertising becomes an art form.”
