Farewell Ross!

It is with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to Ross Phillips - a veteran of seven years, first as our Head of Interactive, then Creative Technical Director before becoming Creative Director. Phillips is the hand behind innumerable interactive projects, including - but by no means limited to - the seventeen-thousand image strong Taking Liberty's project (not to mention last year's Taking More Liberty's), our award-winning 2008 Replenishing Body, and this year's Mirror Mirror installation at Topshop Oxford Circus. But aside from Phillips' amazing technical wizardry (including the pedestrian but much-appreciated magic touch on many a malfunctioning laptop), he was also a wonderful member of the tight-knit creative team here at, and will be greatly missed by each and every one of us. Phillips is going on to interactive pastures new with the British fashion brand Mulberry - a treat for all of us when A/W 2011 London Fashion Week rolls around! He will also be spending a great deal of time in his new home with his wonderful wife, Dominique and their new baby Elliot.

Alas, I am in Milan while Ross' final farewell is taking place at HQ - and thus missing out on the celebratory cake and coo-ing over babies - but I salute his incredible interactive know-how, and wild creativity, as a colleague, as a friend, and as a representative of as a whole!

Good luck, Ross!

    Unfortunately didn't get the chance to work with Ross very long although I soon discovered he is a very funny, friendly and talented person who will be greatly missed. I wish him all the best and look forward to see the amazing work he will no doubt produce in the following years.
