Lewis Beedham appointed yesyesBD Art Director
yesyesBD have today announced that Lewis Beedham, former Senior Artist, has been appointed as the agencies Art Director.
This appointment will see Lewis heading up the yesyesBD Art Department, overlooking the creation of artwork and graphics for the agencies campaigns. He is keen to develop the agencies graphics capabilities and has already re-imagined the agencies artwork creation process.
He has adopted (some may say liberated) the mantra of rival agency TBWA/Chiat/Day “It’s better to be the pirates than the navy” in his creative approach which he intends to instill in the rest yesyesBD Art Department. Beedham has self branded himself as the ‘rule breaker’ of the industry, never afraid to break the ‘rules of design’ to create something new and exciting.
Creative Director, Jamie Cartledge, said: “I have worked alongside Lewis for most of my professional career in various capacities, he is a very talented artist and I am very excited about his appointment as yesyesBD Art Director. He has already led some of our team on campaigns and I’m sure his ‘f*** the rules’ attitude to creativity, along with our ideas led company culture, will help us create campaigns that turn more than a few heads, maybe even dropping a few jaws. I look forward to seeing him build and develop his new team and seeing the work they produce.”
We’re pleased to welcome Lewis in his new role, and look forward to seeing what he brings to the agency.
