I Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself: Shahir Zag's Thoughts

March 11, 2013 / Kalvin Lazarte

Sometimes inspirational.

Sometimes crass.

Sometimes romantic.

Most of the time hilarious.

The work of Shahir Zag doesn’t just have a bagillion late night Tumblr bloggers and Pinterest hungry teenagers to thank for distributing his typographical art work across the universe and making him a well known name amongst the webosphere.

The chief creative officer of Y&R has spent most of his life dedicated to the art of making award winning advertisements, beginning his climb up the creative corporate ladder at the tender age of 14 after being awe inspired by a Nike ad. Today Zag remains untouchable in his field. He has been awarded multiple Cannes Lion awards and in 2012, Zag was ranked #1 copywriter, #1 art director and #2 CCO in the world by the Big Won report.

Outside of his professional career, Zag’s personal thoughts presented in perfect kerning resonate to mass audiences around the globe. His ideas about religion, love, art and attitude are stated simply and poetically for the rest of the world to quote and respond with the same simple sentence…

“I couldn’t have said it better myself.”
