Former AKQA executive creative director Wayne Deakin teams-up with Movidiam for global brand initiative

Wayne Deakin

Former AKQA executive creative director Wayne Deakin is to collaborate on a world first project with the special projects team at Movidiam to help reimagine the way film/video content is produced. The upcoming project for a leading global brand is scheduled for release in early 2018.

George Olver, co-founder of Movidiam, said of the hook-up: “Wayne has a global perspective on the creative economy which aligns with our views around the need for the frictionless pursuit of creativity and connection.”

Deakin commented: “People discuss ‘disruption’ a lot, but it’s far more interesting doing it rather than simply talking about it. The team at Movidiam share a passion for innovative solutions and asked me if I was interested in working with them on a special project to showcase how brands and agencies are going to solve the always-on content problem moving forward? It is an exciting project to show how you can make beautiful craft at global scale and at speed with the help of technology”.

Having recently hired Chris Lawson and Simon Friedberg, the new collaboration with Deakin marks a step change in Movidiam’s ambition to become the leading destination for commissioning creative content. With a curated network of over 16,000 creatives in over 170 countries, the company is currently working with brands including Facebook, Google, Dell EMC and Tesla.
