Speaking of his new role as creative operations director, Rory Hallam said: “I’m passionate about our creativity and I am excited to implement my vision to take our creative services department forward on a global level.
"I want Think Jam to keep innovating; we’ve launched some incredible products this year by collaborating across the business, especially in social media and mobile including Facebook Canvas, Twitter Moments and Snapchat Vertical Video."
Managing director at Think Jam, Daniel Noy, said: “Our creative team has undergone a significant period of growth in recent months, reflecting the expansion of our creative services and capabilities across R&D, global social localisation and VR, to deliver solutions as partners to our clients within the entertainment industry.”
