Stinkstudios Appoints Jon Lawton as Creative Director

Today, Stink announces the new hire of Jon Lawton as Creative Director of Stinkstudios. Lawton, formerly of Grey London, and previously Wieden+Kennedy and BMB, joins the company to oversee creative execution. Jon is already directing his first piece of work for a global sportswear brand.

As Stink’s global network continues to invest in experts within each specialised company -- Stinkfilm, Stinkdigital and Stinkstudios -- the hire of Lawton is an essential milestone for the Stinkstudios team as they continue to expand their capabilities.

“I have always believed in blurring lines between disciplines, and Stink has always challenged convention in how they are defined,” says Lawton. “Stinkstudios ambition is to create and produce amazing work that gets people’s attention and I’m proud to join the team at this exciting moment.”

Stinkstudios was established November 2015, due to a growing demand in the industry to offer high-quality original content, strategy and execution in one place. With Stink already having a globally recognised reputation in production and digital fields, Stink launched Stinkstudios to address that demand.

“Our mission with Stinkstudios is to offer a specialised full-service partnership, providing one-stop solution delivering top quality branded content at exceptional value” says Stink Founder, Daniel Bergmann.

“We are a storytelling company that delivers high-quality content,” says Stink CEO James Morris. “We are always seeking to grow our creative and production expertise and so we need strong team leaders who have been on both ends of advertising and production— we have found this expertise in Jon Lawton and we are very excited to welcome him to the Stink family.”
