Published on January 20th, 2015

Carmichael Lynch’s creative department continues to grow with the addition of Puja Shah, who rejoins the agency as an Associate Creative Director.

Puja has more than ten years of experience at agencies around the world, including Fallon, Euro RSCG, RPA and Olson. In addition, her client list is just as impressive, having worked on a wide variety of accounts ranging from automotive (Acura, Honda, BMW, Porsche) to consumer-packaged goods (General Mills – Yoplait, Kraft Cheese, BudLight Beers) and from the banking industry (Citibank, Commerce Bank) to education (University of Minnesota, Baylor College of Medicine).

“As a creative agency, we are always looking for the best creative talent who share our passion in making great work, and Puja is just that. She’s incredibly talented, she’s a leader, and above all, she has the desire to be the first to do something and not the second,” said Carmichael Lynch Chief Creative Officer Dave Damman. “Puja’s prepared to do the best work of her career, and help others do the same.”

Originally from India, Puja received her education at The School of Applied Arts in Mumbai before pursuing a Masters in Art Direction at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Brandcenter. Puja now lives in Minneapolis with her husband and young daughter, and in addition to an eye for art direction, she also has a talent for languages, of which she speaks 3 of them, including 6 dialects. She is a true Renaissance woman.
