Shaun O'Connor – Creative Technology Director


Shaun O'Connor – Creative Technology Director


I'm part Creative Director, part Technical Director.

Recently my work for the Sydney Opera House was awarded Australia’s first Cannes Gold Lion for mobile marketing, along with a total of 10 Cannes Lions including silver and bronze across digital and direct. This led to DDB Sydney being one of Australia's most awarded agencies at Cannes 2016.

Coincidentally – in a world where ‘mobile first’ has become a familiar catchphrase  – 11 years earlier, the first advertising campaign I worked on was a mobile film festival, while at Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand. ‘Rubbish Film Festival’ was also awarded two gold lions at Cannes, in Promo and Media.

I have held roles within some of the region's most recognised agencies including Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand, Saatchi & Saatchi Australia, DDB New Zealand and TBWA Sydney.

My speciality and focus is on where creativity and technology intersect. Having a deep, practical knowledge of software development and design – along with a passion for ideas,  gives me a unique point of view and approach to problem solving which is reflected in the contemporary, cutting edge nature of my work.
