About me

My full name is Björn Kusa.

Currently in Portland, OR. Working at Archrival, solving problems, making awesome stuff.

In short, I’m a conceptual creative with an engineering background and a problem solving mindset. I’m a fan of insight driven advertising. I love both seeing and finding simple and fun facts and truths that people can relate to, take a stand for or against, or just laugh at.

I love to create things. Through experiments, inventions and taking risks. By breaking rules, making mistakes, having fun, and always, through hard work.

Feel free to contact, me via these icons.   social-011_email   social-011_linkedin   social-007_skype   wnw

Also.

I’ve previously worked at AKQA (Portland), 360i / Dentsu (New York), åkestam.holst (Stockholm), Crispin Porter + Bogusky (Boulder) and at some IT/Telecom companies.

I’m a member of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), responsible for the Webby Awards, The Lovie Awards and The Internet Weeks in both NYC and Europe.

OREO – An Ode to the Forgotten Finger

OREO just launched the new OREO Thins, a more sophisticated, thin, adult version of their beloved cookie. To celebrate this new cookie, we made a film about fingers, since they are the part of our body that handle cookies most frequently.

And with the new OREO’s, one sophisticated finger in particular makes a glorious ascent from its forgotten place in the world.

KAHLÚA – The Pocket Karoler

For decades, caroling has remained the same. No one thought to bring it into the 21st century… until now. This holiday season, we’re upgrading caroling with the Kahlúa Pocket Karoler.

It’s got a range of holiday carols that anyone can shake – and sing – along to. So, shake up the door-to-door tradition and get ready to carol your friends all season long.
