Juan (Coko) Velez
Creative Associate

B. Advertising / Dip. Business Innovation

Take a flight and start from scratch.
No language, no family, no contacts, not much money.
Are you crazy?
Yes, that was exactly what Coko did.
Fortunately, life gave him the bravery and the opportunity to make the shift.

Coko grew up in the 90’s in Medellin Colombia – exciting isn’t it? The frenzy of such a colourful culture woke up his avid creative instinct.
He worked as a copywriter and creative director in advertising agencies for over 8 years but his desire for pushing boundaries and determination to face new challenges took him to Aotearoa where he’s been happily living with his wife and two rabbits since 2013.

After a few years of hard work while learning English, Coko completed a Diploma in Business Innovation and worked as a Brand Specialist for a NZ company, which allowed him to earn his well-deserved NZ residence. Now, he has joined the Blue Ocean team to do what he enjoys most, connecting invisible dots that lead to meaningful ideas, then making them happen.
