TARAN CHADHA | Writer + Creative Director | chadha.taran@gmail.com
Most recently, I was featured on the SPACE Channel and the National Post as Creative Director for several comic book series and VR video games. I also created Blood Sport Gaming in partnership with Ogilvy Spain, which was originally featured on Vice, Time, Popular Mechanics and countless other press. Before that, I worked for agencies like TAXI, Edelman, Rethink and more. In 2009, I broke new ground in digital and robot technology by creating the first reality video game Prank House (Featured on Yahoo news, The London Evening Standard, Sunrise 7 etc). Prior to that I created the viral website Shoot The Banker along with two other digital ninja’s from CP+B in 2008 (over a million hits in three weeks without promotion). Originally, I cut my chops at BBH and JWT in New York, then dabbled in graphic novels, pitched TV companies such as Disney and worked on several startups. But in the end, I love ideas. If you do too, let’s chat.

128ea2aJAN JAWORSKI | Senior Creative at Facebook – “Taran Chadha is what happens when a Greek god is born in the form of an Indian man from western Canada. And by that I mean that he is by far one of my favorite people to work with, and an amazingly talented guy. He’s the type of creative person who, no matter what the problem is, you always know will solve it in an unexpected way. Whether it’s an integrated campaign, an interactive website with “live” robotics, a pilot for a TV show, a short film, a graphic novel, or a feature film script Taran has, literally, done it all. In addition to that, he’s one of the most collaborative, ego-less, fun and nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Oh, and he plays a mean tenor saxophone too. So if you’re in the mood for some sensual jazz, Taran’s your man.”

 YUSONG ZHANG | ACD at Cossette – “Taran is a very talented writer, and his talents extend way beyond the discipline of copywriting. He’s a well-rounded creative thinker and problem solver with a very unique vision. He attacks problems from every possible angle and finds the best solution. He’s also very kind and fun to work with. If you come across this guy, hire him!”
