Zak Mroueh launched design and advertising agency Zulu Alpha Kilo in 2008 after leaving his previous job as the CCO of Taxi. Even prior to officially opening the agency, Zulu Alpha Kilo received their first client. Telecommunications giant Bell Canada asked Mroueh if he would help the company develop a new creative platform. This was a huge win for the start-up company.
The agency’s name was inspired by the NATO phonetic alphabet. It also is a reflection of the company’s belief that advertisements must be simple and evocative in order to stand a chance against today’s media saturated consumer.
Recently, Zulu Alpha Kilo had the opportunity to work with the National Advertising Benevolent Society (NABS), which is a support system designed for all Canadian professionals in the marketing and communications industry facing personal, career and family challenges due to illness, injury, unemployment or financial difficulties. Both the company and the client were so pleased that Zulu Alpha Kilo decided to submit the work to Graphis’ Advertising Annual 2014 competition.
The competition features the most compelling and influential advertising work of the year. Prizes consist of gold and platinum awards, which are then published in the Advertising Annual 2014.
