Joining Hakuhodo in 1992, Kimura has established a unique planning & creative style that eliminates the boundaries of strategic, creative, digital, PR and media development, and working through the entire process.
In 2006 he established Hakuhodo Kettle – a creative agency that plans and implements innovative new campaigns that often exceed ordinary advertising methods; where he continues “boiling the world” by “boiling ideas” and serving them to his clients.
Kimura’s list of recognitions include 2 Grande Lotus at Asia Pacific Ad festival, Gold at CLIO, Yellow Pencil at D&AD, Silver at Cannes Lions, Grand Prix at NY Festival AME award, Gold at New York ADC, Gold at London International, and Gold at Asia SPIKES, etc.

He loves traveling and has visited more than 30 countries. He cannot wait for the day to retire and travel to more countries. But he will never realize his dream, since he loves his current occupation.
