TBWA\Media Arts Lab, the dedicated creative agency of record for Apple, appointed Brian Ma to the role of executive creative director in Shanghai. In his new role, Ma will assume responsibility for the creative output of the agency, with a focus on custom content creation.

His "passion for creating culture-rippling work out of China" is what Brent Anderson, global chief creative officer of TBWA Media Arts Lab, said excites him the most. 

Ma’s hire comes on the heels of TBWA Media Arts Lab Shanghai being named Spikes Asia’s Country Agency of the Year in 2018. Ma studied in the US and began his career in the Hong Kong market. He honed his creative skills at agencies throughout the Greater China region, including DDB, JWT and M&C Saatchi, before moving to Leo Burnett Chicago.

Over the course of his career, Ma’s work has been recognized by a variety of industry organizations, including Cannes Lions, Clio Awards, D&AD, LIA and the One Show.
