Corey Cruz

Regional Creative Director - APAC

DigitasLBi Singapore

SINGAPORE // As Regional Creative Director, Corey oversees the creative output in six countries in APAC for DigitasLBi’s clients, including Disney, Pernod Ricard, and HP Enterprises. Within her first year of steering the creative team, DigitasLBi Singapore rose to win its first award—no less than gold for Digital Agency of the Year.

She started her advertising career as an art director right out of internship at TBWA\SMP in Manila, where she and her partner bagged the Philippines' first Young Lotus metal at Adfest. She later moved to BBDO Guerrero/Proximity Philippines where she rose up to become Proximity Head of Creatives. Along the way, she has led integrated and digital campaigns that picked up awards at Cannes, Spikes, One Show, AME, Adfest, and AdStars.

Corey studied at the University of the Philippines, where she received degrees in Molecular Biology and in Visual Communication. Art and science are her twin loves—the subjects of her TEDx talk and a continuing personal project on science illustration.
