Ian and Henry join Mayda from The Mill in London
The Mayda Creative Co. announces Henry Foreman as creative director and Ian Walker as executive producer. In their new roles, Ian and Henry will lead the evolution of Mayda’s nascent design offering across its growing portfolio of client partnerships and creative initiatives spanning branded content, creative technology, and entertainment.
Since launching in 2021, Mayda has quickly built its reputation as a modern, multi-disciplinary creative studio, producing an eclectic mix of commercial and tech-forward projects for the likes of AT&T, Google, PlayStation and MSG Sphere.
“We are thrilled that Ian and Henry have chosen to join Mayda”, says managing director Barry Parkhill, “Design is the common thread that runs through all our creative output, from how we think and approach creative challenges, to its practical application across its many forms and disciplines. Ian and Henry will bring new perspectives, creative energy and expert experience to Mayda, and we’re delighted to welcome them to the team."
“Not only do I feel immensely proud to have joined the Mayda team at such an exciting time and be part of the next chapter of its evolution,” says Ian, “I’m also delighted to be beginning this journey with Henry, a good friend whom I’ve worked so closely with over the last six years and creatively achieved so much together. We’re both looking forward to developing Mayda’s design offering and to continuing its already impressive growth.”
Henry adds, “The list of projects Mayda has delivered on in such a short amount of time is mind-blowing. The work isn’t just beautifully crafted content and experiences, it’s truly culturally significant. It demonstrates the kind of results that can be achieved by this collective of expertise and knowledge to just about any creative brief. Ian and I have shared ambitions that slot right in with the family at Mayda, which we can’t wait to get stuck into”.
Ian and Henry both join Mayda from The Mill, where Ian served as global executive producer and Henry as head of design for the London team, both overseeing teams of producers, designers, and artists. Collectively, they have produced award-winning work for brands including Spotify, Adidas, BBC, IBM, and Sky Creative.
