Brand New School is proud to announce that Devin Brook has been appointed Managing Partner of their Los Angeles and New York studios.
Brook will continue to oversee the caliber of innovative and award-winning work that Brand New School has produced under his management, including top honors at Cannes, the AICP show, Art Director’s Club and a litany of other award shows.
As Partner and Executive Producer of Brand New School’s New York studio since 2010, Brook has headed the company’s live action production, design, animation and VFX. He also spearheaded the company’s newly formed bns.labs, a fully integrated design, media and interactive development division. Brook has proven to be an invaluable leader of Brand New School’s production and creative vision since joining the company.
“Devin has a tremendous understanding of the company, its culture, artists, and clients - but also an acute grasp on how to make great work in today’s creative climate," remarks BNS Director/Partner Jonathan Notaro. "It’s an exciting time for everyone here at BNS.”
After graduating from UCLA with an impressive dual-degree (in History and Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics), Brook chose a new direction, taking a job in advertising. Soon after, he began his tenure at Brand New School’s Los Angeles office.
Devin has also shared his rich industry experience as a guest lecturer at the NYU/Wharton/Columbia/MIT Media and Entertainment Conference, SCAD’s Inspire Conference and the Columbia Business School, and as a panelist at AICP conferences. Additionally, Brook has edited learning materials for Columbia’s Graduate School of Business.
