Mira Kaddoura Founder & Executive Creative Director of Red & Co. || Portland, USA

Mira Kaddoura is an Interactive Artist, Storyteller and Executive Creative Director. In 2013 she founded, Red & Co., a creative and technology agency that helps Brands solve problems that Matter.

Red & Co.’s first initiative, Made with Code with Google, is seen as one of Google’s most important and ambitious marketing efforts to date.

She has worked in advertising for 14 years 10 of which were at Wieden+Kennedy, both in the US and UK, where she created work like Nike I feel pretty, The Girl Effect, Travel Oregon, Coke Olympics among many others. She tries as much as she can to create work that starts meaningful conversations around topics and causes she believes in. Her work has received numerous national and international press and her honors include TED’s Ads Worth Spreading, several Gold and Silver Lions at Cannes, D&AD Yellow and White Pencils, Gold Effies, Clios, Communications Arts and Webbys.

After working on four continents (so far), she finds it no big deal to hop to the other side of the globe. She speaks a few languages, which helps when hopping so far and so much. Mira thinks her husband, family, yoga and conceptual art projects keep her sane in the crazy world called advertising.

If you meet her you’ll find she has crazy hair that dances almost as crazily as she does.
