Toygar Bazarkaya, Executive Creative Director, BBDO New York
Toygar was born in Turkey, grew up in Germany and lives in New York. At this point he spend his professional career in equal parts in Europe and the US with a little stint in Brazil. Before joining BBDO New York as an Executive Creative Director he was the Chief Creative Officer of BBDO in Germany helping the agency to become Germany’s most awarded Agency in Cannes. His international experience and creative drive are the main reason for his success in leading global brands like, Mercedes, smart car, Braun, Gillette and Visa. He’s proud to say that he won multiple Cannes lions, Clios, D&AD and Effie awards for all of his clients. And his simple belief that “great work works” has proven to be right over the years.
Leading up to his time with BBDO, he worked at Scholz & Friends and Jung von Matt in Hamburg, DDB New York, DM9DDB in Sao Paulo, Mullen in Boston, and Springer & Jacoby in Hamburg. But recently, he met his most demanding clients, clients that don’t seem to take “no” for an answer, his little twin daughters Soul & Baxter.
