Julian, the Global Business Director for eYeka based out of our London office, has spent his career within the digital industry, working for some of the worlds biggest companies as well as start-ups where content has been the core focus. Three years ago he accepted that the art of video production was no longer a mystery nor limited to a few, but rather a global phenomenon, especially amongst the Millennial generation. Crowdsourcing platforms had started tapping into these global creatives enabling brands to leverage from the speed, efficiency, agility and cost effectiveness combined with the familiar guard-railed processes within creative agencies. Today, eYeka has evolved this creativity and works with brands to help them with their new product innovation.
