Mario Kerkstra

I’m a Creative Design Director at
AMV BBDO in London where my
role is a cross between design
and creative.

I’m passionate about design and
ideas that have a positive impact
and are crafted to perfection.

My work has been recognised
many times over at all the major
international award shows.

Highlights include a Black Pencil
at D&AD and 7 Grand Prix at
Cannes Lions.

Trash Isles was also the category
winner for graphic design at the
Design Museums’s annual Beazley
Designs of the Year exhibition.
Subsequently Trash Isles was made
part of the Design Museum’s
permanent collection.

I was ranked #1 designer at D&AD
(2018), #1 designer at The One
Show (2021) and #2 typographer at
D&AD (2022).

I have also been a judge on the
Typography jury at D&AD (2021)
and on the Industry Craft jury at
Cannes Lions (2023).
