DD8 Appoints Leigh Newman As Design & Innovation Director

DD8 has appointed Leigh Newman, a multi-award winning broadcast design director and creative strategist with extensive knowledge and consideration for technology and innovation, as the company’s design and innovation director.

Newman is a much sought-after broadcast designer, who was named Creative Magazine’s Young Achiever in 2010.

Since then his work has continued to grow in stature and his knowledge of technology and its vital relationship with creativity and innovation has seen him create apps for clients such as Ferrari and Nissan.
