Anthony Chelvanathan

Having assumed many roles at Leo Burnett Toronto and now moving into SVP, Creative Director, Anthony has a made a name for himself as one of the most prolific creatives in his space. His work has been recognized in just about every international show including D&AD, Cannes, One Show, ADC, Communication Arts, LIA and Clios. Anthony has worked on all categories across the agency over the course of the last 16 years with no limit to success, regardless of category. Anthony believes that in order to get to the heart of a great idea, the first step is understanding the human connection to the brand purpose, then bringing the brand to life thought that vein of the creative process.  In 2009, The Gunn Report ranked Anthony 6th in the world and his Cannes Gold Lion-winning campaign for James Ready Beer the top out-of-home campaign.   In 2015, his follow-up video to the #LikeAGirl campaign got more than 90 million views from around the globe while his TSN outdoor campaign promoting the Rogers Cup was among the most awarded billboard campaigns in the world. In 2017, Anthony's IKEA “parchment paper” execution racked up multiple Golds in Cannes adding to his tally of more than 100 international awards, including a Grand Clio. When he’s not crafting his way to the number one art director spot in Canada, he can be found in his kitchen, treating his friends to his latest spicy curry recipe.
