Josy Paul
Inspiring Inventiveness

Josy Paul is a man who has always been courageous with words and thoughts. You might think he’s someone wearing one typical hat, quite literally, but essentially he is someone who wears many. The whole idea of trying to be on the risqué edge of creativity within the confines of demand is the toughest but Josy has been able to do that. Taking a different route from conventional advertising, it’s no surprise he’s won more awards at Cannes and Spikes Asia than any other creative in India. So, every time Cannes comes up with its ‘lion’ in a new material – be it iron or glass –we know Josy will be lifting it. In my view, he is a creative Goliath with a heart of David.

Anita Shishodia (Guest) Being risque with creativity. It can be seen in Mr. Paul's work. He doesn't mind pushing the boundary, but still manages not to cross a line.

Komal (Guest) I remember attending a guest-lecture by him in college, not knowing who he was (back then). Even the lecture was very different from our usual ones and the man definitely has a heart of David. He is full of knowledge and creativity without an iota of arrogance.
