The Mill London promotes Urien to CD
The Mill London has announced the promotion of Ross Urien to the role of creative director.
In her new role Urien will work closely with artists across all disciplines, further enhancing The Mill’s diverse creative output to ensure the studio continues to craft the very best work.
Urien joined The Mill in 2007 as a 3D artist and, not long after, became an art director working on concepts for key projects including Audi Lines with director Lynn Fox, Guinness Music Machine with Steve Cope, and Axe Angels with Rupert Sanders.
In 2011 Urien pioneered and led print for The Mill globally, alongside her role as an art director, working on a vast number of notable campaigns for brands including, Heineken, Nike, ebay, Halifax, Jaguar, SSE, Samsung, Google Play, Huawei and PlayStation.
Most recently Urien has led The Mill London’s expanding design studio, working on a variety of projects including Chanel Gabrielle with Ringan Ledwidge, Virgin Media Harmony with Fredrik Bond, and Skoda Paloma Faith with Georgia Hudson. Urien also co-directed the 2018 trailer for the eagerly anticipated Picasso exhibition at Tate Modern, ‘The EY Exhibition: Picasso | 1932 - Love, Fame, Tragedy’, and regularly has work published under a nom de plume.
“Ross is an extraordinary talent who cares deeply for the work that we do and for the people who do it,” says The Mill ECD, Jonathan Westley. “We’re thrilled to have her in the CD Team and have no doubt she will continue to create exceptional work for our clients, whilst inspiring others through her talent, creativity and leadership.”
