Richard Jones, head of design at Marks & Spencer (M&S), is moving from brand to consultancy, taking up a new job as executive creative director at Landor.
Jones leaves M&S after two and a half years, having led the brand design team. He was in charge of creative projects across packaging, branding, digital assets and in-store design and communications.
He will now oversee the creative work at Landor’s London office, and has been taken on for his multi-disciplinary experience, says Landor London managing director Andrew Welch. Jones has previously worked across film, print, digital, verbal communications and environmental design.
Welch says he hopes Jones will be able to “create compelling experiences” across multi-media platforms.
Prior to working at M&S, Jones worked at WPP advertising agencies G2 Joshua and OgilvyAction, which were merged under the umbrella group Geometry Global in 2013.
He has had 30 years of experience in design and branding in total, having worked with clients including Vodafone, Gillette, P&G, Unilever and Chevrolet.
Landor is a global brand design consultancy with 29 offices worldwide, which has worked with brands such as the Australian Open, Nike and BMW.
Jones takes up the role at Landor immediately.
