Indy Selvarajah. Sri Lankan/Malaysian blood.
Born on the rock of Gibraltar. Creative Director.
Started in the art world, showing my work at the Barbican,
Baltic & Serpentine galleries and the Whitney Museum in NY.
I was extremely pleased.
Then wrote a TV show for Channel 4, produced by Charlie Brooker,
which offended the Daily Mail and tried to ban.
This made me even more pleased.
And then I wrote and created the Thierry Henry Sky Sports ad, which
even people who hate football, didn’t hate. It was the most viewed advert
over 24hrs in facebook history with 19 million views and the 3rd most
watched ad in the world that week.
I was really fucking pleased.
Along the way I've nabbed; OBIE (off broadway), Broadcast Comedy
writing award, PR Week PowerBook, British Arrows, Clio, D&AD,
LIA gold, Eurobest, Guardian top 50 TV show and a BAFTA craft nominee.
I have been on the jury for the British Arrows 2015. Panel talks for
Huffington Post, ICA, Channel 4, Dubai Lynx, Cannes Lions
and Eurobest talks 2017.
And this is the best ad I never made.
