The first episode of AdTLC features a conversation with Canada’s top creative team: Leo Burnett’s Steve Persico – a Seneca alum - and Anthony Chelcanathan.

Together in 2012 Steve and Anthony were awarded four times at Cannes, 23 times at the One Show and nine times at the Andy’s. Their accounts include James Ready Beer, IKEA, Procter and Gamble, Raising the Roof, and Kellogg’s.

Anthony has won countless national and international honours in his ten-year career. In 2009, The Gunn Report ranked his work for James Ready beer the top out-of-home campaign in Canada. A year later, Anthony’s work helped land Leo Burnett Toronto on the 2010 Cannes Report Top 10 in North America list. Strategy Magazine has also ranked him the number one art director in Canada three times in five years.
