Hall & Partners creative chief leaves after seven months


UK— Max Gadney, the ex-BBC designer who was hired by Hall & Partners less than a year ago as chief creative officer, has left the agency.

Gadney left the company in May, just seven months after his appointment was announced, and is now working as a freelance design consultant.

He was taken on in a global role last year, applying design and creative techniques to the communication and dissemination of research to clients.

Both Gadney and Hall & Partners declined to comment on the reasons for his departure today.

Hall & Partners’ European CEO Paul Edwards said the company is not seeking a replacement in the role and will be focusing more on ways of making research outputs more useful and practical for clients.
