Babak Radboy
Creative Director
Babak Radboy Info Events
Babak Radboy is the creative director of the break-out unisex line TELFAR; whose look-books, advertisements and collections have been shown as works of art at institutions such as the Musée d'Art Moderne, Paris, The New Museum New York and the ICA London.

From holding fashion-week after parties at a Times Square White Castle, to producing his magazine Bidoun days after the Tahir Square revolution in Cairo, to attempting to sell a $50MM mansion at Frieze London — his projects push the boundaries of culture and commerce and natively generate reams of press. To date his clients, which range from Kanye West to Hugo Boss have never spent a dollar on advertising.

Case in point: his recent creative directorship of the IXth Berlin Biennale which tapped art photographer Roe Etheridge and cult writer Chris Kraus for its campaign, drew journalists into waves of moral outrage and staunch defense — making the biennial the most talked about and highly attended in the city's history.

Casey Rand Info Events
Casey was born in Montreal, Quebec.

When she tells people this, they usually say, “DUUUDE. I was in Montreal for a bachelor party once. They have this strip club where the girls…”

Casey does not know what the girls do. She’s only been to one strip club in her life and that was in Richmond, VA, the day she got her Master’s from the VCU Brandcenter. She remembers the jalapeno poppers being surprisingly good.

Now she lives in New York, where the jalapeno poppers are just O.K. Her first job was at BBDO, working on Starbucks, AT&T and HBO. Her second was at Silver + Partners, making stuff for Ben & Jerry's, Carmax and Ultimat Vodka. Now she's at Droga5, where she’s created campaigns for the YMCA, the Clinton Foundation, Under Armour, Diet Coke, Chase and more. People call her the Goldilocks of advertising.

That’s not true. Nobody calls her that.

Casey writes other stuff too, but she rarely gets paid for it.
