Brandcenter Alum Mira Kaddoura is one of AdAge's Women to Watch in 2019
Mira Kaddoura grew up in Beirut, speaking Arabic and French. She lived through multiple wars there and witnessed firsthand the suddenness and finality of death. Even after moving to Virginia to attend VCU Brandcenter, she worried about friends and family back in the Middle East. Those experiences colored her design philosophy, and after 10 years at Wieden & Kennedy Portland, she founded the agency Red & Co., which she says focuses on “nondisposable” work for brands.
