The New Year sees an important new hire for digital marketing agency, iCrossing as Tim Bax joins as the agency’s first Creative Director.
Bax’s remit is to integrate the agency’s existing content, design, social and user experience teams into a single Creative Department.
Bax joins from Proximity London BBDO, where he's been Head of Content for the past three years, working across accounts like Visa, Orange, P&G, Royal Mail and many more.

Editors, social media content specialists, conceptual creatives, visual designers, copywriters and user experience experts are being brought together under one leader for the first time at iCrossing. Tim has a unique blend of creative, content and copy experience that is a perfect fit for us. He will help us flex our creative muscles in new ways and we're excited about this.”
