My name is Dušan Čežek and this is my vanity page. I am an ideamaker emerged from art director. I come back to this page from time to time to look how awesome I was during the last 12 years I have spent in advertising.
I have worked for Leo Burnett, Saatchi&Saatchi, NOA, Kaspen/Jung Von Matt and VCCP Prague. Today, I co-own Fuchs+Dachs studio with my wife and together we are focusing on freelance advertising work, digital content and game design.
When people ask, or not, I am telling them anyway, that I am focusing on experience advertising, product development and problem solving. They do not know what I am talking about and I feel smart. I hate advertising without problem solving. Also, I am not fond of separation of digital and traditional advertising. Find some other way to charge the fucken client. And no. I am not filling that timesheet.
I have won so many industry awards and I was published by more than 25000 magazines, blogs and publications. I have participated @ TEDx Chicago and Athens and I had more than 50 international art exhibitions including FILE festival, NY Times square installation, DMY Berlin festival and the City of Ravenna Art Academy and Gallery... I had several viral videos with 25 million youtube views on a single content. What a nice awardsturbation I just had. And since you are lazy to read, here is the visual representation of the achievement I was telling you about:
Granny Jela's SHILJUR
In order to promote our new digital agency to Croatian market we have created an unique HR campaign to invite people who think in a digital way.
Back in the days when QR code was new and it was not used by brands as a part of traditional print add to show how digital they are, people still wondered what it is for and how to used it. We wanted to reach people who knew what QR code was and to introduce QR code to the Croatian market, but with a unique name.
National TV station in Croatia had a short documentary series about forgotten crafts and how those crafts survive in modern day Croatia. We used that channel and we have created our own documentary you can watch above.
If you scan any of the Qr codes from the video it was leading you to a page of our agency with a message: MAYBE WE NEED YOU - APPLY NOW.
Name Shiljur was voted the one of the best new Croatian words that year and we have recieved more than 200 cpplications.
Man who knows how to watch
You know those moments when you are watching your favourite sport team loosing. Yes those moments when you question everything, even your-self. Actually, you are right - you are the reason why they suck. More precisely - you watching the game.
When you leave the room to stand in the hallway in hope that when you come back to the TV they will stop sucking and start winning. And it happens, they are better while you are away but the moment you are back, they suck again...
The man who knows how to watch doesn't have those thoughts. He simply knows how to watch and he is the reason of all loses and wins during a season. He is the guy who can make a difference.

People don't believe that electric cars are the same or even better than the traditional gasoline ones. Especially they believe that they will never get used to the sound of the electric cars. That is why many car makers are investing huge budgets into the design of the specific sound for their electric cars.
In order to promote the electric line from BMW we have invented a special test drive focused only on an awesome sound of the new BMW i series, by using an old and traditional media.
When you enter the tunnel, the radio signal is lost. That is where we jump in and on all frequencies we were playing the sound of the BMW i8 engine turning your old car into the electric sport machine.
