VCCP Singapore has appointed Kelvin Lim (pictured) as head of art. The appointment comes following new business wins at the start of the year and strong ongoing growth for the agency. The appointment also allows the agency to provide more for existing clients as well as seasoned mentorship to develop the existing creative team.
Andrew Hook, ECD of VCCP Singapore, said that Lim is a gifted craftsman, a highly considered thinker, and a natural mentor to young creatives. “He brings to the table an abundance of experience, maturity and passion for the work – the perfect fit for our growing team as we enter the next phase of our expansion,” he added.
Lim brings with him over 15 years of experience working on iconic brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Qatar Airways, as well as homegrown brands such as FairPrice and Singapore Airlines. Lim said that it is great to be part of the VCCP family and he is excited with the opportunity to share his experiences with the team.

Lim’s appointment, alongside Guy Futcher’s recent appointment as creative director, adds additional seniority to the team, which includes Hook and Shervin Seah, associate creative director. VCCP said in a statement that it is building an agency for the long-term and looking past short-term fixes. In the last twelve months, VCCP Singapore has concentrated on diversifying its offerings launching its B2B business.
