Ed Warren is set to join Sunshine as Chief Creative Officer. Previously co-founder of Creature, Ed will join Sunshine at the end of May 2017. Ed joins the group board of Sunshine to work alongside Sunshine Founder Al MacCuish, who moves to the role of Creative Chairman.
"I'm hugely excited by Sunshine and
their approach. They are blazing new
trails in the world of entertainment
and I'm very much looking forward to
being part of their bright future."
Al MacCuish, Co-Founder and Creative Chairman, commented: “I think Ed is genuinely unique in the industry. There is no-one else out there with his quite his combination of talents; he is an expert on brand strategy but can write and design like a demon; he has a critics' understanding of culture and entertainment but can then create it himself. Add to this the fact that he speaks fluent Cantonese - a great compliment to Mel's Russian - and he's our guy. I couldn't be more thrilled that Ed is joining us”.
