Antar Walker has joined MPC London as Design Creative Director.

Antar Walker -- who joins MPC’s London advertising studio as Design Creative Director -- is a truly multi-disciplinary designer and director with world-class experience spanning over 8 years in advertising, design, animation, film and digital.

The industry’s top creative awards have applauded his projects and he has worked for some of the world’s most iconic brands including Nike, Apple, BMW, Tate Modern, Land Rover, Burberry and Chanel.

There’s now an opportunity to apply design and visual innovation to the power of animation and VFX tools to create memorable, brave new content for all manner of brands, agencies and directors. I look forward to working with MPC and its clients to continue its legacy of excellence into new and emerging fields of design, motion and interactive content.”
