As part of this role, Last will work closely with creative, commercial, and operational teams in developing HF’s creative tech capabilities for further growth.

Last joins Happy Finish from Vixen Labs, where he was executive producer. 

A former Gold, Silver & Bronze Cannes Lion winner, his previous roles include stints at Exterion Media and Stink Studios, and work with clients such as Google, McDonald’s, Ray-Ban, Spotify and Unilever.

Expanding the HF creative team under the leadership of Creative Director Alex Lambert are Demi Wu and Kevin Hughes.

With client accounts including M&S, Nike, Dolce & Gabbana, Bang & Olufsen, and Burberry, both Hughes and Wu will further deepen HF’s creative capabilities and add to its portfolio of narrative-driven creative content creation.
