Athula Kathriarachchi

With a renowned artist for a father, and two talented art director brothers, the world of visual communications simply courses through Athula’s veins. Design is his sword for victory. And crafting his spear to drive it home. Skillful weapons which have made the Campaign Brief #1-ranked-talent one of Sri Lanka’s most awarded Creative Directors – with multiple successes at Cannes, One Show, Clio, ADC, Spikes, AdFest and AD STARS.

The recipient of a coveted Lotus Roots award, Athula’s decades-long body of work is rich in local insights and culture – experiences which he regularly brought to the table whilst working at Lowe LDB, Grant McCann Erickson, and in the Middle East.

In a passionate bid to raise-up a new generation of designers and art directors, Athula generously conducts lectures and student portfolio curation for the University of Moratuwa, and the AMDT School of Creativity, Colombo.
