Hello, my name is Douglas Kozonoe a.k.a. dogura.
I'm currently working as Chief Creative Officer at MRM McCann Worldgroup Brazil.
I was born in São Paulo and always liked to create stories and drawings.
In 1999 I started to work with internet projects and in 2002 I started as designer at a digital agency.
Since then, I'm expressing my creativity through advertising, digital and innovative ideas.
During my career I won several awards, these include: One Show, Cannes Lions, D&AD, London International Awards, Clio Awards, Effie, JayChiat and all the latin-american awards. In total, more than 50 recognitions in advertising awards.
I've being Jury member of Effie Awards 2022 and 2023, Jury member of the Brazilian Creative Club and other regional ad festivals.
Once, I was selected in FILE (International Electronic Language Festival) and I have a degree in musical arts (eletric bass) in Villa Lobos conservatory.
I also have a degree in Industrial Design from Mackenzie University, and a postgraduate degree in Communication, Art and Technology from Belas Artes Unicenter - São Paulo.
Fun fact: My grandma couldn't pronounce my name because of her japanese accent, so she used to call me "dogura".
