Ross Chowles

Founding Partner

Jupiter Drawing Room

Cape Town

Ross has spent 31 years in the advertising industry trying to perfect the art of persuading consumers to part with their money.

Having judged in France (Cannes Print and Cannes Film), New York (One Show, Art Directors' Club of New York, Clios), Canada, Korea and even Namibia, Ross is a seasoned Creative Director who sometimes fantasizes about being a teacher. Ross has been willingly involved with One Show's annual education initiative in China for the past 8 years.
