He also leads popular seminars on creativity at international conferences around the world, according to Golden Drum.

Kimura says, "The world has become more complex, the problems of society more difficult to solve to the extent that there is no longer a correct answer. We now have to create other solutions that push our abilities that take us beyond our imagination."

Pum Lefebure — co-founder and chief creative officer of Design Army in United States of America

According to Golden Drum, Lefebure oversees all creative coming through the agency's doors. An award-winning creative director and savvy business leader, Lefebure has developed numerous international campaigns for high-profile clients, such as:
  • Adobe
  • Netflix
  • Neenah Paper
  • The Ritz-Carlton
  • PepsiCo
  • Saucony
  • Hong Kong Ballet, and
  • the Smithsonian. 
Lefebure was named one of Adweek's Creative100, recognised as one of the top 50 People to Watch by Graphic Design USA and designated a Rising Star by the Washington Business Journal's Women Who Mean Business

"We always hear that design is in the details, but that isn't true — design IS the detail. It's what makes good design great. It is all the more important as many artists now live in a world where AI can do almost anything a human can do. But craft? That's the human element it cannot grasp," concludes Lefebure.
