Dave Ellams, head of design at design and marketing agency Motionlab, has been promoted to creative director.

Ellams, who joined the agency in 2009, will be made responsible for managing, directing and contributing the agency’s creative environment across content strategists, SEO & PPC professionals, designers, interactive developers and copywriters.

He takes over the role from CEO Simon Iredale who has been creative director since the Preston-based agency was established in 2004.

Said Iredale: "With the continual expansion of the Motionlab team and the growth of the business in many areas I felt it was time to pass the overall creative direction to Dave.

“We have worked well as a creative partnership since 2009 and will still maintain that partnership in the business. My time is now much more strategic and client focussed and Dave is the perfect successor to one of the most important roles at Motionlab,” he added.

Prior to joining Motionlab, Ellams worked with nxo and Salad Creative.
