Creative by Adobe. Published on May 6, 2024

For Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Ad Age is once again shining a light on the creative accomplishments of AANHPI talents across the marketing industry and beyond. Throughout the month, we’re showcasing milestones in the careers of AANHPI creatives—campaigns, projects and ideas that each contributor is proud of. Four guest editors will kick off each week with a personal essay and then hand the spotlight to others they’ve invited to contribute to this package. We’re honored to be sharing all of their stories, and we’re delighted you’re joining us in this celebration of AANHPI creative excellence.
