Former Interbrand Newell and Sorrell creative and associate director Garry Blackburn has joined The Fourth Room as creative director.
Blackburn took up the newly created position in mid-November, with a small share holding in the group. He is working in the group’s illumination unit.
Blackburn’s long-term task is to build up his design team. His appointment follows that of former Ideo project manager Nick Dormon, who joined The Fourth Room as a principal in October. Dormon is a consultant on a range of strategic business issues.
Meanwhile, Interbrand Newell and Sorrell says it is looking to fill Blackburn’s former position.
