Lawson and Friedberg join Movidiam to spearhead new campaign

London based creative-tech company Movidiam hires former BBH and AMV creative directors Chris Lawson and Simon Friedberg to spearhead their new campaign. Lawson and Friedberg team up again after working together at Cheil on the Samsung NX David Bailey campaign.

Having recently raised a further round of funding, the startup is one of the fastest growing in the creative sector and is capitalising on the trend towards agile working.

Movidiam co-founder, Alex Vero, said: “Chris and Simon were a perfect fit from both a creative and experience perspective. With a combined 40 years experience in the industry they have a unique perspective of having worked for in-house production units VCCP Kin and AMV BBDO, as well as having recently made the move to freelance”.

Lawson commented: “As the production and creative industries continue to fragment, Movidiam offers a powerful way to bring teams together. We are excited about the new campaign and it certainly helps to have a world-class production network at our fingertips to execute the ideas.”

Movidiam is a professional global network, marketplace and project management platform for the creative industries. With a curated network of over 15,000 creatives in over 170 countries, the company has already signed up brands including US tech giants Facebook, Google, Dell EMC and Tesla to the service as well as many of the leading creative agencies and production companies.
