Can Faga

Co-Founder / Creator

Can Faga is the third-person narrator in this biography and one of the most awarded creatives in Turkey. In fact, he was named as one of the “top 10 creatives that will lead the advertising industry in the future”.

Before joining Publicis as Executive Creative Director, Can worked in Ogilvy, McCann, DDB&Co and Mullen Lowe respectively. In 2011 and 2012 he won Lions two years in a row with the works he did for CNN and Radikal Newspaper. In 2014 he scored another Lion with beautifully illustrated Omo “Fairy Tales” campaign. Besides 3 Lions and 13 Shortlists in Cannes, he won many other awards in Epica, Eurobest, Golden Drum, Effie and the locals; Crystal Apple and Red Awards. The “Dreams” advert he did for Turkish Airlines won the Film Grand Prix in Golden Drum. That was the 5th Grand Prix in his career.

Here is a little interview he did for the Global Headline Makers. Can served as judge on the Outdoor and Radio Jury for the Eurobest 2013; Film, Print, Outdoor, Radio Jury for the Dubai Lynx 2015 and Direct for Cannes Lions 2018. He was a member of MullenLowe’s and Publicis Groupe’s Creative Council.

As of November 2020, Can decided to let go all of the achievements you read above and start his career from scratch. It may sound a bit crazy but the excitement of a new beginning is priceless. And needs no big fancy titles. The only thing it has, is a name. aRthuR.
