Rahul Mathew

This is Rahul Mathew, our Chief Creative Officer, and someone with that special creative Midas touch. His previous stints in some of the top advertising networks of the world has seen him rack up over a hundred metals and honours including a Grand Prix at the Asia Pacific Adfest. a Spikes Asia Grand Prix, multiple pencils at One Show, and lions at Cannes.
While he never realised his dream of becoming a professional sportsperson, Rahul has lived his life as one. Fiercely competitive, a big believer in teamwork, a relentless dreamer, gloats just right about his wins and hurts just enough from his losses.
Under his leadership, the DDB Mudra Group has had back-to-back wins at Cannes Lions 2018, 19 & 21, been ranked No.2 at Effie India 2020, won the Grand Prix at Spikes in 2019 & 21, won golds at WARC and was awarded the WARC Prize for Asian Strategy. Our more recent work, Project Free Period and Hashtags Don’t Heal, were awarded the inaugural D&AD Impact Prize Fund in addition to multiple metals and honours at Cannes, Spikes Asia, One Show and D&AD Impact. His vision steered us towards becoming one of the Top 20 creative and effective agencies globally by WARC and Effie Index in 2020.
Rahul has been ranked among the top 10 writers in India on multiple occasions. He ranked 3rd in India and 19th in Asia on Campaign Brief Asia’s list of Most Awarded Creative Heads 2021.
