Creative production studio Ambassadors has welcomed Justin Blyth as head of creative across its Amsterdam and New York studios. In the new role, Justin will lead Ambassadors’ multidisciplinary team of artists on crafting beautiful, engaging, and story-driven creative work.
Justin originally hails from Los Angeles and has lived and worked in Amsterdam for over 10 years as a creative director and motion graphics artist. His previous experience has seen him working with agencies, brands and studios including Anomaly, Wieden + Kennedy, and Woodwork – even a stint freelancing at Ambassadors.
“We’re so excited to have Justin at Ambassadors. Not only because he’s a great guy, but with his international outlook and agency background, he can really help us understand the creative production problems our partners are facing,” says Halbo van der Klaauw, founding partner, Ambassadors.
Justin Blyth, global head of creative, Ambassadors adds: “Ambassadors’ attention to detail in their craft has always resonated with me, but what really sticks out is the people. I’m thrilled to work with such a lovely and talented group of individuals, and to me that’s key to an environment where we can really push the bar of creativity.”
Justin will work closely with head of production Daphne Litjens, Halbo van der Klaauw and Head of VFX Will Jeffers as they continue to offer a mix of remote production solutions and working from the studio under covid guidelines.
Ambassadors’ latest work produced under lockdown includes ActieHelden (ActionHeroes) for Albert Heijn, which mixes live-action and animation to create a mini superhero universe inside the supermarket, as well as VFX for Lynk & Co’s launch campaign 96% with Halal.
