/ ABOUT ME /
Hi I'm Lim Win and, to be clear, that's just a phonetic way of spelling my actual name: Liem Nguyen. But just to make it simple, just call me Lim. Anyhow, I'm a Creative Director who has spent the last 15 years creating campaigns big and small. What I've noticed is there are a lot of problems and, luckily, I enjoy solving them.
I like to think of myself as a hybrid Art Director and Designer that lives in the sweet spot of conceptual thinking and detailed craftsmanship. Whether the projects are TV / Film, digital / mobile, print / outdoor, branded content, or experiential pieces... my calling is applying my skillset to help build brands and create culture-shaping ideas.
I've been fortunate to work with many agencies around the world on many brands and what I've learned is that the "learning" never ends; because the only constant is change. Advertising has evolved and so has the way consumers interact with brands. But regardless of the platform, details and craftsmanship still goes a long way... and that's kinda my jam.
Outside of advertising, my faith keeps me grounded and my family brings me joy.
If you'd like to know more just shoot me a note... Grazie!

+ RECOMMENDATIONS +
"When I’ve had the pleasure to work with Liem, it has been a real pleasure. He’s a good thinker, coming up with great ideas on his own and making other people’s ideas better. He cares about the work he does and works hard to make it as good as possible, attacking a brief from all sorts of angles and crafting the work every step of the way. He’s also an awesome person and a pleasure to be around."
- Brandon Davis, CD, Weiden + Kennedy
"In addition to being able to deliver killer ideas, Liem has a priceless relaxed positivity that completely disarms those freaking out around him as he almost refuses to be phased by the chaos that comes along with the industry as he chooses to laugh and create vs whine and drown. Hire this man. And go have lunch with him as much as possible.
Great brain inside a great dude."
- Russell Dodson, CD, David The Agency
"I had the pleasure of working with Liem for a few years at Grey in New York. He is a true craftsman who cares about every aspect of a project from concept all the way through to the conform. He's also a good human being, which is sometimes overlooked in our biz. I'd work with him again in a heartbeat."
- Andy Currie, Freelance CD
"Liem is great. He was my art director. He works hard. He cares. He’s passionate about the work and he understands that great work usually carries a high price. He’s got a great sense of design and sweats the details like a good art director should. And, he’s also far more conceptual than the average art director. Heck, he can even write a pretty solid script in a pinch. He’s a glue guy. People like him. And, he likes people. He also truly enjoys mentoring younger creatives and helping them produce good work. I’ve worked at a lot of really good agencies and with a lot of really great creatives, and Liem fits right in no matter who or where you are talking about."
- Duc Nguyen, CD, Taxi
"I'm a huge fan of Liem. Super talented, smart, and hard-working. Always comes through with great work and knows his craft. Continually pushes the work to be better. Above all else, Liem is a pleasure to work with. Hope I get the chance to do it again."
- Eric Cosper, CD, Mekanism
"Liem never ceases to excite a room. Conceptually, he delivers strong, interesting creative ideas that are both on-brief and innovative. He presents this work with passion and humor, that brightens up the room and encourages people to ask questions and share their thoughts. He also receives this feedback in a way that feels collaborative and open minded, which is likely due to his relentless sense of curiosity. He's truly been a pleasure to work with, and his positivity and playfulness has helped him build strong relationships and execute awesome work"
