Ms. Eleanor Modesto

was one of the first graduates of Visual Communication who was trained to write copy.

She then moved to join Lintas Manila (now Mullen Lowe) before moving to lead the creative team of Lintas in Jakarta, Indonesia. The 21 year stint in Jakarta made her realize that ideas don't have a nationality and the great ideas are those based on human insights that delve into the mind and hearts of the people who use the brands.

She moved laterally and became one of the early Agency Heads from Creative who led the advertising agency as CEO. She saw the growth of the advertising business in Jakarta from pure print and outdoor to a robust multi-media communications power house in Asia. They were exciting times in Indonesia and it was a time for pioneering ideas like starting a TV-show production unit as well as a below-the-line activation group within the agency. 

She returned to Manila in 2010 and started a digital agency, Rogue360, which evolved into pure digital and was later absorbed by a big multi-national advertising agency.
