Grads Make Their Mark at DDB Paris.
Bulgarian-born Alexander Kalchev studied at Miami Ad School in Hamburg and interned at agencies in Moscow, Brussels and Berlin. Siavosh Zabeti, born to Iranian parents in Paris, was raised in Germany and, after attending Miami Ad School, did intern stints at in Stockholm, Amsterdam and New York. The pair worked together during their last quarter at school before joining DDB Paris in 2007.
From CREATIVITY magazine: Over the past several years, DDB Paris has produced some of the industry's most consistently ... unusual creative content. And we mean that in a good way. The shop's print and TV work has tended toward the oddly compelling but the agency has really shone for its "non-traditional" and frequently offbeat brand initiatives, such as promoting a fictitious underwater Paris-to-New York train route for rail company SNCF.
