Rob Strasberg to head AdFest 2008 Innova Lotus and 360 Lotus Jury

Rob Strasberg, VP and Creative Director, Crispin Porter + Bogusky (CP+B), Miami, is Jury President for AdFest 2008 Innova Lotus and 360 Lotus, which was formerly known as Contagious Lotus of Innovation.

Strasberg said, “I am honoured to be made the Jury President. It is not everyday you get to travel to the other side of the world to judge great work, meet new people and eat food you have never even heard of. Not only should it be a big idea, but it should help reinvent what we consider advertising, or how we interact with advertising. I want to be inspired by the work. I hope it makes me want to work harder and think smarter.”

Strasberg, who has won all the big awards in the advertising industry, started his career as a copywriter in New York City at a small creative boutique called Grace and Rothschild. After he had helped build such brands as Land Rover and Mobil 1, he left for CP+B in Miami. Since joining CP+B, Rob has risen to VP and Creative Director while creating well-known campaigns for Burger King, Sprite, MINI, IKEA, truth, Slim Jim, Coke Zero, Virgin Atlantic, Miller Lite and Volkswagen. The ‘Details’ magazine has named him as one of America’s 50 most influential men under 38.

Jimmy Lam, Chairman of the AdFest Sub-Committee for Judges and Speakers, said, “These two categories were inaugurated in AdFest 2007 and attracted small quantity of entries. However, we saw that the winning works that were awarded by David Droga and his judging panel have been continuing to pick up top awards in other regional and global awards. We are looking forward to seeing more inspiring entries from the region at AdFest 2008.”
