Tanya Ponømareva


As a creative director, I am committed to creating smart, human-centric concepts that positively impact the world. My goal is to transform the advertising industry into a more inclusive, equal, mindful, and diverse place.

I specialize in building sustainable brands on a genuine foundation, providing a new generation of consumers with real communication value. I work with multidisciplinary teams to deliver the highest quality on every project, building trust-based, long-term relationships with clients.

As a leader, I encourage my team to develop concepts that bring more common sense to the industry and purpose-driven work to the world. Personally, I use advertising to disseminate disruptive positive work and come up with bold, provocative, and fun ideas that evoke emotion and leave a mark.

With a wealth of international experience, I have worked at agencies such as Ogilvy & Mather APAC & EMEA, JAMI, Wunderman Singapore, Friends Moscow (Droga5), dentsuACHTUNG!, Boomerang, and have collaborated with high-end brands such as adidas, Nike, Adobe, KPN, Porsche, Kimberly-Clark, PepsiCo, Google, Heineken, and Epica, among others. I have also received numerous prestigious international, regional, and local awards, including Cannes Lions, D&AD, Epica Awards, Eurobest, and the New York Festival.

In addition to my professional achievements, I have also served as the Jury President at the ADCN Awards for Digital Campaigns and was nominated for the jury at the shots Awards EMEA for Concept & Copywriting, the D&AD awards for Writing for Advertising, and the Cannes Lions for the Direct category.
